Educational toys for childrenEducational toys such as the Leapster Leappad learning tablets,  IXL learning system, the Mobigo Touch learning system are  electronic toys that are immensely popular with children these  days.

It seems that this generation of youngsters much prefers  learning through the use of handheld gaming systems, learning  tablets and electronic laptops and cameras than using paper,  pencil and paper.

Its just a sign of the times and if it helps your child to  become more engaged with learning a skill that will help them  with their school studies, then there is nothing wrong with  that.
