Amazon.com has select preschool toys on discount right now, offering savings of up to 43%. Here are the toys that I thought looked interesting:
The Small World Toys Ryan’s Room Family Affair Caucasian doll set is a free-standing, posable, 6-figure set that includes a mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, girl and boy. These toys are great for developing hand-eye coordination and for imaginative play. We have several toys from Ryan’s Room and have always found them to be high-quality products. Right now, you can buy this set for $13.75 — a 43% savings off the retail price. It is eligible for free Super Saver shipping on orders over $25.
Amazon has also discounted the Schylling Baby Grand Piano in black. This piano is made of solid wood and includes sheet music, song cards, a matching bench and a removable, colorful key guide to learn notes and melodies. It has 30 keys and 2.50″ octave span and is recommended for ages 3 and up. It is priced at $104.03 — a 39% savings off the retail price — and ships for free with Super Saver shipping.
Also on discount are two toys from another one of our favorite manufacturers, Plan Toys. Plan Toys was the first company to manufacture toys using wood from rubber trees that no longer provide latex and it incorporates green practices into its manufacturing practices as well.(You can read more about this here.)
The Plan Toys Build N Roll consists of 45 pieces, including 3 wooden balls and a special accessory to construct a windmill. It is recommended for children ages 4-6. This set allows children to design their own marble tracks in various ways, including setting up the track to form a loop. To add more fun, children can play with the Plan Toys Construction Set and Plan Toys Unit Blocks in conjunction with this set. This would be a great toy for a budding engineer! It is priced at $34.48 — a 38% savings over the retail price — and ships for free with Super Saver shipping.
The Plan Toys Sorting Train is just $15.01 — a 25% savings — and is also eligible for free Super Saver shipping. This pull toy won the Parent’s Choice Award and it also functions as a shape sorter, making it perfect for hand-eye coordination practice. It is made from recycled rubber wood and coated with a non-toxic finish made from vegetable dyes.
Amazon.com also has several items on sale right now from Melissa & Doug, one of the leading designers and manufacturers of educational toys and children’s products.
Among them is this Melissa & Doug Magnetic Chalk Dry Erase Board. This double-sided board features a dry-erase board on one side and magnetic chalk board on the other side. It includes three sticks of colored chalk, a dry-erase marker and 36 magnetic letters and numbers. It is recommended for children ages 3 and above. Amazon.com is selling it right now for $14.38 — a 28% savings over the retail price — and it is eligible for free Super Saver shipping.
Also available is the Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Clicker Crab Hourglass Sifter and Funnel. This plastic hourglass is great for funneling fun, allowing children to watch sand or water flow from the top to the bottom and back again. It is enhanced with cute molded fish that “swim” around the outside. This toy would be perfect for a day at the beach or for a sandbox, sand table or water table. It is priced at $6.69 — a 33% savings over the retail price — and it is eligible for free Super Saver shipping.
Another Melissa & Doug bargain right now is the Melissa & Doug Rainbow Stacker. This toy’s brightly colored, smooth-sanded pieces help build early shape, color and size differentiation skills. It includes eight smooth, easy-grasp wooden pieces to stack on the solid-wood, rocking base. This is a classic toy every child should have. It is recommended for children 18 months and up. Amazon.com is selling it right now for $7.56 — a 24% savings over the retail price — and it is eligible for free Super Saver shipping.
Finally, Amazon.com is selling the Alex ABC – 123 First Words for $14.78 right now — a 43% savings over the retail price. It is also eligible for free Super Saver shipping. This toy includes 36 colorful wooden tiles and a frame, helping children to learn the letters of the alphabet and their numbers. It is made of sustainable wood and the pieces are all attached to rods, so you don’t have to worry about losing any. It is recommended for children ages 2 and older, although it does contain small parts, so it is also considered a choking hazard for children under 3 (don’t you just love those warning labels?).
