Black Friday is a great time to get deals and here are a few of my favorite toys this year.
Kids love to build. The LEGO DUPLO Steam Train uses bricks designed for a child’s smaller hands and invites kids as young as 2 years old to tinker with their ability to “code” that supports cause-and-effect learning. The train has a color sensor, so that children can place colored action bricks along the track to sound the horn, activate lights, and change direction of the train wherever they want. Young children can become the conductor with the Push & Go motor — a gentle push either forwards or backwards sends the train on its way! Click here to learn more.
