Educational Games & Toys for Your Holiday Lists

The holiday shopping season kicks-off in full force at the end of this week. To help those who will be shopping for children's gifts this year, I recently talked with The Toy Guy, Christopher Byrne about his picks of educational games and toys for the season. Fans of Regis & Kelly, Oprah, or the Today Show may recognize The Toy Guy. While The Toy Guy does love toys and games, he also recommends taking kids on a good old fashioned trip to the public library. The video of our conversation is embedded below.



Make sure you check out Time to Play Magazine for more games and toys reviews.

Here are the toys and games The Toy Guy mentions in the video.
vTech V.Reader Animated E-Book System
LeapFrog Leapster Explorer Learning Game System
Hyper Dash Extreme
Woody's Run Around Round Up Game

This one is not mentioned in the video, but I found it while exploring Time to Play Magazine and thought it had potential to be good. LeapFrog Tag Maps
