Let’s all have fun counting, stacking and sorting with these toys for kids.
Counting, stacking and sorting are all stages a young child goes through. Some are even used to gauge a child’s development — but here they’re just fun.
I’ve picked out some of my favorites to share with you. I wonder if your choice will be the same as mine.
I do know, babies and toddlers will love them and spend hours having fun, learning and developing all at the same time.
The stacking toy featured here is perfect for learning colors and size sequencing, specifically stacking the smaller shapes on the larger shapes. It is also a really fun balancing game.
The Melissa & Doug Alphabet Nesting and Stacking Blocks
Your youngster can stack them high with this impressive toy from Melissa & Doug. They may be made of cardboard, but they’re sturdy enough to withstand a child’s handling and play. This set features lots of letters and animals to keep her entertained and a wipe clean surface.
Melissa & Doug Deluxe 10-Piece Alphabet Nesting and Stacking Blocks are suitable for babies 24 months and over.
The 10 blocks are made to either stack one on top of the other or will nest one inside each other. Your little one will have endless fun working it all out while developing hand-eye coordination, building up motor skills and learning shapes, colors, letters and animals.
Sorting Toys for Learning, Playing and Child Development
When Selecting an Educational Toy, Be Sure to Check each toy for age appropriateness.
None of us wish to see our children get frustrated because we have selected a toy that they are no quite ready to master and we definitely want them to feel the sense of accomplishment by mastering the “game”.
These toys are recommended for children 3 years and up. They will help them develop hand-eye coordination and motor skills as they play with these colorful shapes. Before long, they will learn to identify the shapes to go in the right holes and will have great fun filling and emptying to their hearts’ content.

More Counting Toys
My children always kept me company while I was working in the kitchen and they loved having toys that resembled what I was doing. My son used to stack cans from my pantry. I always hating it when it was time to put those cans away. He had worked so hard to build a beautiful structure with pantry cans. I sure wish we had the counting cans below. He certainly would have loved them.
I also have no doubt whatsoever that both of my children would have loved the cookies and cookie jar. These will both be early development toys that I will give to my grandchildren.
