Play expert-tested activities and games for learning.

Toys should be fun and educational. Our Beyond the Blackboard play experts (grown-ups and kids!) love these toys that deliver big on fun and big on learning. We extensively scour the toy market for the best teaching toys. We meet with toy companies to learn about their latest and greatest products, and then we play with them ourselves to make sure they meet our standards. We make sure that an activity or game encourages skill-building in one or more of many areas: fine motor skills, gross motor skills, math, reading, writing, social and emotional skills, and more.

Yes, Virginia, there are really toys that can teach kids important skills!

Holidays and special occasions provide the perfect opportunities to buy your kids all the great Beyond the Blackboard toys they have been begging you for, but you can also use these events as chances for your kids to learn.

Whether you have a budding physicist, little construction site manager, adventurous book lover, or a future physician on your shopping list, our teaching kits and toys will surely get their brain working at any age!

Childhood is the most important time when it comes to brain development, and the best teaching toys for kids are created with this in mind. These toys help those naturally curious kiddos learn as they play!
