Back to School Educational Toys


The best gift that parents can give their children is the gift of play. We all live busy lifestyles, and taking time out of your day to sit down on the floor and play with your children is the best thing for them. As a retired preschool teacher, I remain passionate about empowering parents to play more with their children.

One of the best ways to make playing with your children fun is to have educational toys that stimulate your children and help them to learn through play. One brand that I have been purchasing for my children since they were babies is Learning Resources. Their educational toys make learning with children extra fun, and they are high-quality products that will last for many years.

While purchasing back to school supplies for your children, also purchase some learning toys to use with your children at home. By using Learning Resources toys, you’ll be inspiring your children to love learning and will create memories with them that will last a lifetime. These are some of our favorite Learning Resources toys..

Cycle Gears

The gears! gears! gears! cycle gears building kit allows your little inventors to create an almost endless variety of cycles that really roll. The 30 gears snap together to allow for open-ended play. Specially designed to help little minds practice and develop STEM and critical thinking skills. This entry point into the Learning Resources gears! line is fully compatible with all other gears! sets. Collect them all and watch your child’s creations come to life!

Alphabet Acorns

A unique twist on matching games! Kids will learn letters and the alphabet as they put the acorns together by matching upper- and lowercase letters. Inside each acorn is a little surprise…a vibrant color counter. Kids can stack the ABCs in order, or just make up their own game. This deluxe set includes 26 acorns and 26 counters.

Calculator/Cash Register

This classic Calculator Cash Register has been loved by kids (and parents) for almost 30 years. With learning activities that align to many state standards, this working register encourages children to engage in imaginative play while they learn measurements, basic math and early money skills.

The STEM Robot Mouse Coding Activity Set, the perfect way to introduce children as young as five to important STEM concepts like coding, critical thinking, and more.

With Colby, the Programmable Robot Mouse, kids will have hours of fun while they learn to build their own mazes, and then program the mouse to get the cheese. This deluxe set includes maze grids, maze walls, tunnels, a robot mouse, and materials to help guide the play. It’s a fun, easy, and affordable way to add an hour of code, or more, into your home or classroom.

Counting Dino-Sorters Math Activity Set

This prehistoric play set makes learning into an engaging, interactive game. Toddlers will practice counting, sorting and number recognition as they match the baby dinosaurs to the correct eggs. Or, they can enjoy hours of imaginative play with their new dino friends. Cracking open and putting together the egg shells helps build fine motor skills too. Set includes 10 two-piece dinosaur eggs and 55 dinosaur counters.
