Developmentally Appropriate Toys
For Children ages 3 - 5 year

Devolopmental Toy #1 : See and Spell

This is a wonderful toy that is recommended for girls and boys ages three to five years old. This product provides early reading and writing with hands on playful activities. This allows children to feel the alphabet while being able to see the letters and understand their shape in order to be able to recognize them. This product has picture and letter manipulatives to assist children in pre-reading concepts, phonics, and literacy development. This uses 20 puzzle pictures and more than 50 different color letter kids.

This toy is developmentally appropriate for the age group of 3 - 5 years becaue it helps children in acquiring their reading skills.

This toy is appealing to children of this age because it is multicolor, appeals to the visual learner as well as the tactile learner. This is also appealing because of the ability to take apart each new word and the wooden play boards appeal to children.

A parent would select this toy because it is durable, low cost, only $17.95, and it helps with reading skills. This toy helps improve fine motor skills and the children manipulate the letter pieces in the correct position. Parents would also be happy that this can be used for boys and girls.

Yes, I would select this toy because of the ability to create reading skills and fine motor skills and for the fact that it is portable and can be taken from one place to another.

Part II:

Developmental Toy #2 : Magnetic Mighty Mind

This toy has recently been rated as one of the top developmental toys for this age group. This developmental toy develops both creativity and helps children understand visual / spatial relationships. Children learn to solve puzzles on their own. This starts with simple manipulations of two half circles and then two full circles. This toy has magnetic tiles and contains 32 design tiles and 6 basic geometric shapes, 4 colors, large and small sizes. This also includes 30 sturdy puzzle board cards that are organized and programmed in numerical sequence to show children how to build and solve puzzles.

This toy is developmentally appropriate because it target fine motor skills, problem solving and visual spatial experiences. This targets several developmental areas.

This toy is appealing to children because of the versatility of the 30 puzzles boards along with the magnetic shapes that also target the visual child. Children are intrigued by the different shapes, sizes, and colors.

Yes, I would select this toy. In fact, I have used this toy with my nephews and nieces. This targets specific developmental skills while children learn and have fun and also learn how to be organized.

Part II:



Developmental Toy #3 : Animals are the Best Teachers

This has cute animals and games that teach basic skills. Animals are The Best Teachers has incredibly effective math blocks that teach measurement, number concepts, addition, subtraction, and even basic algebra. There are 47 geometric shapes in a rainbow of different colors that complete the animal pictures. This contains Inchimals, Animal Pattern Blocks and is appropriate for boys and girls ages 3 -4 years old.
This toy is developmentally appropriate because it allow children at such a young age to learn measurements, math, addition, subtraction and even algebra, which is amazing.

The toy is so appealing to children because it utilizes something that children love, animals, different shapes and colors.

Parents would definately chose this toy because it introduces concepts to children that they normally would not be able to handle at such as young age, such as pre-algebra. This toy does it in such as way that children do not realize it because they are having fun with the animals.

I would select this toy because it is innovative and very challenging while at the same time the children have fun, which means they are learning and equating learning with fun. This will serve them well for the future.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Can you please send again the pictures of the toys as I am having trouble opening them.



of course I will, you caught me at a great time, just finishing with another customer.

Everytime I copy and past the pictures, the site gives me a message, "Entry is too long" It is very frustrating for experts, I can see the picitres available in the answers above, are you able to view the pictures?

I'm really sorry to bother you again. but it seems there is a problem in getting the images. I tried in 2 laptops but still when I click to enlarge it does not work. I tried even saving the image directly but when you enlarge it, it becomes unclear. Is there other way to send the photos? maybe to my mail: XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX


You are not bothering me, that is what I am here for.

I was afraid of that, there are allot of quirks to the program that the site uses. It is VERY frustrating for the experts and the customers. There is nothing that I can do.

I too wish I could e-mail it to you, as I have the entire assignment saved on my computer. But, the site does not allow experts and customers to e-mail. In fact, the site blocks all e-mail addresses, when your e-mail came through it showed on my screen as,

I only tell you this because the experts have little control other than simply doing work, and I just want you to know what is out of my hands.

When I transfered the pictures, it said, click to enlarge, did that work?

The only option I have is to give you an internet address to get the picture of the toy, if you want that
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
