Back to School Toys and Games for Learning Through Play

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.
