Collection: Literacy & Numeracy

When you think of literacy and numeracy, you might have flashbacks from your childhood of being forced to recite your times tables or read out loud in front of the class. You probably think of toys that are designed to improve these skills as dull and torturous.

Good news: many of the best literacy and numeracy toys aren’t specifically designed to teach reading and math. These open-ended toys allow children to learn these skills incidentally while they play – hooray! 

And because research has come such a long way, even structured literacy and numeracy toys are infinitely more fun than any educational toys we had when we were kids.
