Children learn by playing, so educational toys can give them a big boost. Different age groups benefit from different types of learning toys, which help them develop in different areas.
Learning toys for babies under one year appeal to the senses of sight, sound and touch and help them develop motor skills. Some toys will play music or begin to teach them about colors, shapes and animals. Toddlers between 1 and 3 years of age can learn spatial and problem-solving skills from toys like puzzles and large building blocks. In the preschool years (ages 3-5), children often begin learning letters and numbers, and during the school years (ages 5-9), good learning toys can help them develop reading and math skills and spark their interest in science, music and art.
Many electronic toys, including kids' tablets, are designed to promote learning, and some come pre-loaded with educational apps. Learning software is available for a wide range of age groups, so there will always be content available that's appropriate for your child's level as they learn and grow.
Walmart has Everyday Low Prices on a wide variety of learning toys for kids of all ages, so your child can keep learning and having fun. Save money. Live better.
