Quote: A simple, sturdy toy with big keys that help develop hand-eye coordination. Your child can even learn cause and effect: Push a button and something lights up. Toddlers also love repetition, so find a toy that says the ABCs or numbers, suggests Shelley Pasnik, senior researcher at the Center for Children and Technology. Pasnik also suggests products that tell stories, since preschoolers can follow simple plots. And look for toys with music and art activities that will build your child's imagination.
