Which educational toys will keep my school aged child happy?

Educational toys can be anything from puppets to doll houses to musical instruments to construction sets. They can also include art and craft sets to help them express all that budding creative ability.
 
As children reach school age they begin to lose interest in basic creative play such as dressing up and make believe, and they start to prefer games and school aged toys that come with a set of rules which they must follow and ultimately master.  
 
Now is the time to introduce them to children’s toys, card and board games, active games such as chasing and racing games, skipping or hop-scotch. Playing this type of game helps children to learn how to work with their friends in teams, develop logic and encourage creativity.
