I just wanted to quickly share with you some of my favorite educational toys for my son, Oliver! For anyone knew to the blog, my son is 5 months old, so keep in mind his age with these gifts. Some of these we have had and he is just now growing into, and others are wrapped and hiding away as Christmas presents! So much research has shown that the sooner you start teaching your children letters, numbers, music, etc. the quicker they will develop these skills. I am a firm believer that it is never too early to start educating your children!
