- Why I Love It: Great for both independent and cooperative imaginative play. Encourages a love for animals and animal science. Easy to store and carry along!
Round Xylophone – Tinocchio, $26.00
- Why I Love It: Eco-friendly and kid-safe. Encourages music learning and motor skills, too! Plus, it’s handmade, and I love supporting artisans in business.
Kindle Fire HD with FreeTime – Amazon, $139.00, $2.99 per month
- Why I Love It: Allows kids access to tons of awesome educational apps and ebooks, but time and content limitations can be easily set by parents.

Peek-A-Boo Rainbow Family – Apple n Amos, $25.00

Old McDonald Puppet Set – Sandpit Kids, $55.00
