4 Fun And Educational Bilingual Toys

ingenioI’ll  never get tired of saying that the best way for kids to learn is to do it through play, while they’re having fun, because they won’t even notice they’re actually learning. Because I’ve been raising bilingual kids since birth, I’m always on the lookout for quality, bilingual toys that can help me in my journey. Here are five of our favorite ones:

Ingenio: It’s hard to choose just one of the toys made by Ingenio, a company dedicated to bilingual toys in several language combinations. My kids and I discovered these toys about four years ago and they were an instant hit. From puzzles to play tablets, there’s something for everyone!

Chicco Talking Farm: This cute toy teaches children numbers, animals and colors in both English and Spanish. We’ve bought several of Chicco’s bilingual toys and we haven’t been disappointed. Some people don’t like that the Spanish used is from Spain, but I don’t really mind.

Leap Frog Learn & Groove Music Table: This toy is not cheap, but it’s worth the money because it’s the kind of product that your kid will play with for a long time to come. It teaches shapes and numbers in both English and Spanish and it has a ton of fun activities that are sure to keep your child entertained.

Just Kidz Sweet Berry Bilingual Laptop: My daughter got this toy laptop for Christmas three years ago and she continues to play with it. It includes memory games, math games and musical activities, among others. Some where too challenging when she first got the laptop, but now that she’s 7 years old, she can play all of them.
