Fun Educational Toys For KidsAuthor: Joyce Barron
Were you aware that The Good Toy Guide recommends Brio Trains as one out of five highly recommended educational toys for preschoolers? According to them a Brio Train is,

Before we go further, though, hold your ear close to your computer, because I am going to whisper to you a secret.... there aren't really educational toys. No sir. Toys are simply props. It is in the actual play that sets exactly how valuable a particular toy can be for the child that has been playing with it.
Toys don't nurture cognitive qualities. What they are able to do is inspire children to build them, and provide a child an outlet to be inventive and enterprising. And that is the thing that makes superbly designed toys and playthings important. A toy that is not high quality makes quite a bit of frustration if the kids cannot freely direct it.
That brings us to the following issue. Mothers and fathers, if you're looking to spend money on a train set and don't plan on having a table for the train set, the train tracks will persistently get moved on the floor and your little ones will probably get frustrated. Soon, they won't play with that train set very often.
In any event, that is exactly the sort of thing that occured to my grandsons. And so I designed and created a wooden durable table for the train (none of this phony wood that doesn't hold up for more than 1 year, and the screws and nails get stripped and damage the wood!).
At this point we ought to move forward and or talk over the train sets.
