I always make sure to buy toys for my kids that are not only entertaining and fun but educational. My kids love playing with toys that are educational like draw board, musical toys, building blocks and kiddie computers.
It is amazing how kids nowadays are so into computer games, however, I refuse to introduce it to my kids because they can be very addictive. Also, such addiction can be uncontrollable at times that it can affect the kids' enthusiasm in their academic subjects and homeworks. Personally, I prefer educational computer toys like this Disneyland's Baby Mickey Mini Laptop.
This Disneyland's Baby Mini Mickey Laptop have music in it, alphabets, numbers and shapes. It is good in getting the little kids familiar with the letters, numbers and shapes at an early age in a very playful way. The best feature of this toy is the spelling. Once a picture is pressed, the computer spells the object. My 3-year old boy learned a lot from this toy when it comes to spelling.
The screen of this mini laptop is not a computer screen per se. It is like a drawboard where kids can draw with a mini pencil. There is no led screen but a mere press board like a magic slate. This toy needs only batteries. It is non-electrical, thus no need to plug in.
By the way, this mini laptop measures 4 by 3 inches.
So far, my kids love this toy and they enjoy it everytime they play with it.
