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.

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.

  1. In collaboration with the National School Lunch Program, Comcast is attempting to facilitate understanding about the importance of the internet by offering it at a deeply discounted rate to families in low-income situations throughout the U.S, starting with Chicago. This is, simply put, a brilliant move not only to help the economically disenfranchised, but also to bolster a floundering economy that is trying to transition from an industrial marketplace to an information and service-based market place.
