July 15-16 – Must-have PRIME DAY purchases!
Most available now!
Grab this for just $49.99 on Prime Day. Not only is this Echo Dot super adorable but your kiddo can gain independence by asking Alexa to play music, hear stories, call approved friends and family, and explore a world of kid-friendly content (parental discretion advised!). I’m confident that my boys’ articulation improved much faster by continually asking Alexa to play their favorite songs and not activating if they didn’t say it correctly. They quickly learned how to correct their requests.
This is a must with a Dot! Every song you can imagine… on-demand! We sing and dance as a family every single day. It builds a strong emotional bond among us as well as developing many physical skills. I have a post coming up about the benefits of sing-a-long movement songs so I highly recommend this! New subscribers get 30 days free and $9.99/mo after that.
These plastic pebbles are great for stacking and developing fine motor skills, making/copying artistic designs and teaching children to count and sort.
These are hours of fun! In groups or alone. Child or adult. 60 pieces for this great price is perfect for adding more magnets to your child’s collection allowing them to build bigger and more elaborate creations! Children will acquire a strong sense of color, geometrical shapes (including 3D forms), numbers, counting, magnetic polarities, architectural design and more. It’s never too early to start developing a child’s creativity. Save nearly $70 on this set!
Or if you prefer to keep it old school, wooden blocks are a true Montessori approach to learning and development. I love these large-scale blocks just as much as the magnetic tiles. They are ideal for introducing early math concepts, including shapes, parts-to-whole, and sorting. They also help to develop hand-eye coordination and grading of force. Get this set for less than $1 per block.
Some kids don’t want to stray from their beloved Legos so here’s a great discount to add a few more to the collection. Save $7…that’s nearly $1M in lego dollars.
These window cling-style stickers offer hours of peeling, sticking, and rearranging. I let my kids cover my sliding glass doors with them to encourage more vertical surface play. But my very favorite thing is watching them clean it up. It targets an abundance of visual skills such as scanning, visual discrimination, form constancy, and figure-ground.
These convenient paint sticks allow children to create beautiful designs that dry in 90 seconds or less. The colors are vibrant and the clean-up is a breeze! Save $6.
A good latch toy or puzzle is a must in every household! They promote strength and coordination in those little developing hands as they anticipate the hidden objects hiding behind the doors. Kids are extremely motivated by a variety of latches. Hide different objects in the barn to encourage speech and vocabulary building as kids have to identify and describe what they find. Save $6.
This ball and hammer toy promotes hands-on play, problem-solving, cause and effect, fine motor coordination, grasp, and strength for success. A great toy for 12+ months. More than $8 off.
A brilliant way to practice letter formation and improve grasp pattern while providing lots of tactile feedback without actually putting a “pencil” in your child’s hand. SUPER DEAL!! Save $46. Go get it NOW!
The colors, the dimension, the size (22.5″ tall), and the endless fine motor gadgets. So much to love about this wooden activity center with a severe discount! Save $31.
If you know the benefits of a vertical surface (I will do a blog on this very soon!) and have the wall space then I recommend this activity wall with many similar features as the Tree Adventure Activity Center (No need for both :)) Save almost $24.
14. Guess Who?
Play this game with kiddos as young as 5. Teach them to frame yes or no questions, scanning skills to look for characters with or without various features such as gender, hair or eye color, etc., visual discrimination, deductive reasoning, social skills, reciprocal engagement, turn taking, and more! You can’t go wrong with Guess Who!
UNO requires quick thinking to match cards by color or number while factoring strategy to add in a skip, reverse, draw, and wild cards. Blink focuses on using sharp eyes and fast hands as two players try to match the shape, count, or color on their cards. Both card games require attention and focus, fine motor strength and coordination, visual perceptual/matching skills and bilateral coordination. Save $11.
Operation works on fine motor precision skills, hand-eye coordination, and grading of force by using these tweezers to remove different fish, body parts, etc. There are several versions to choose from that are sure to motivate your little one to play and persist through their frustration. These Finding Dory and Chewbacca ones are a few of my faves, ehmmm, I mean my kids’ favorites.
Beat the clock by using quick, in-hand manipulation, scanning, and visual perceptual skills to correctly match and place 25 small pieces before the board BOOMS. It will encourage your child to improve how many pieces they properly place each time they play. Save $4.

My best friend’s daughter got this awesome food cart for Christmas and I’ve been admiring it every day since. With a $72 discount, I won’t wait for it to go any lower.
Ahhhh I can’t rave about this toy enough. So much so that we actually have 2 in our house. Rody promotes body coordination, balance & motor planning while providing a fun workout. $10 off, you choose the color! My first son got one for his 1st birthday and still plays with it now at 4. It’s certainly a family favorite!
Another $70 discount! This activity builds strength, coordination, imagination, cooperation and MORE! Start with the frame and allow the kids to customize the siding by adding, removing, and adjusting the panels with the tools provided.
Save $25 off this awesome ride-on movement activity. The kids love the sensation as they zip down the track, encouraging them to do it over and over. I love the motor planning, sequencing and independence it requires for them to set it up each time by aligning the car in the track and pushing it back up to the starting position and mounting it with stand by assistance depending on age and ability.
