We here at FreePreschoolBooks.com highly recommend the last two educational toys on the list, one for science and one for coding for kids.   Boys may not like the idea of a coding game which makes a doll dance, yet it’s one of the best coding games in 2017.   We also recommend for educational purposes the LeapFrog Epic Academy Edition
