Parents keep asking me for my top picks for educational toys for preschoolers. Parents seek educational toys that can help with NYC private school kindergarten interviews, ERB and WPPSI prep, and oh yes, learning.  If you already own the ubiquitous Brain Quest and MightyMind and are now looking for exciting new educational toys, here are some less well-known games and building toys that families I know are enjoying:

MindWare Imaginets

MindWare Pattern Play

Blue Orange Pengoloo

Richard Scarry Busy Town Game

Loose Change Board Game
