Best Educational Toy Brands that are facilitating learning while schools continue to remain shut

Learning and the development of key skills and stimulation for children comes from a variety of sources. While older kids are getting their daily quota of school time through online medium, younger kids in most schools are left to fend for themselves. Screen time, they say is best monitored, but in the process, and thanks to COVID, tiny tots are losing out on more than just "school time". It's now that playing with educational toys comes into the picture. Screen time turns into learning time, and it's the best time to make it all play an important role in their overall learning and development through the most innovative experience.
