Mia rec­og­nizes the im­por­tance of toys in cre­at­ing bonds among sib­lings and par­ents as well as stim­u­lat­ing cre­ativ­ity in chil­dren. Here are her picks:

Zingo: It's Bingo with a twist. If you want to in­tro­duce tod­dlers to the con­cept of a board game, this is a great choice. It teaches them pic­ture recog­ni­tion, strength­ens their hand-eye co­or­di­na­tion, and it also helps them learn the con­cept of tak­ing turns.

Glit­ter glue, crayons, black board:

Wooden toys from Melissa and Doug:
