When it comes to educational toys, I am all for them. After my kids get tired of them, we pass them on to other kids who might like them.
Educational Insights has so many cool and educational toys. I like the huge selection of toys to choose from and we are drawn to this site when the holidays draw near. I found out about some new toys that Educational Insights launched this year. They are not only really fun to play with but are educational too.
4 Must-Have New Toys From Educational Insights
1.Design and Drill Robot. He is one cute robot and you can do a lot of things to him! My little one likes to take things apart and put them back together again, so this toy was an instant hit. The robot comes put together, you just have to add the stickers to him and his screws. Your child can then unscrew and screw the screws into the robot. This helps your child with coordination, helps him learn colors and more.

4. Playfoam GO! Now, this stuff is cool! I even had to sit down and play with it! At first, when I saw it, I thought ‘oh no! Another toy that is going to make a HUGE mess in my home, ugh’. But, low and behold, it really did not make a mess at all. The only times it did was when my kids took it from the table and brought it on the carpet (though it comes right off the carpet) or played with it by throwing it in the air and squishing it into walls, etc. But, other than that, lol, it is not messy! I was shocked and relieved.
The Playfoam GO! comes in a nice plastic carrying case so your child can bring it literally anywhere. On the road, to a friends house, etc. This is just foamy, squishy and moldable stuff and it is really entertaining! You can mix and match the colors for more fun color options. Each Playfoam piece comes in a little compartment. The lid part has molds you can use to create fun objects.
