Today I'll be venturing on another satellite media tour, which means I get to share some awesome toys and games with dozens of TV stations around the country that I wouldn't otherwise get to visit. It also means I get to video-meet a lot of super awesome people.
Today I'll be showing off some of my favorite new toys and games that will help kids learn as they play. These are great for transitioning back into the school year, and for educational play all year round.
