Great Gifts for Preschool and Kindergarten

This is the second in a series on great gifts for kids infant through high school by Guest Blogger Lynne M Favreau. Writer, mother, Child Caregiver extraordinaire. She's smart, she's funny! Listen to her!

The little man I have now is just over two and I see every one of these toys in his future. Cause and effect, dramatic play, fine motor skills, gross motor skills they cover a lot of developmental bases. I confess, I just want that giant potato chip for myself. –Lynne
