As a private school consultant, I have the privilege of meeting many Manhattan, Brooklyn and Westchester families in their homes. These are the toys and media that many of them tell me their children love:
Preschool and Kindergarten
Everybody’s favorite building toy. Expensive, but always used.
The biggest set ever. Get it with world figures for extra fun.
The game of hilarious comparisons. Truly amusing.
Game that develops spatial thinking, a good skill to have.
Fun matching game. If your child beats you, don’t blame me.
Unique, ad-free magazine and safe social network for learning and creative self-expression. Great alternative to Facebook.
