Disclaimer:

I have recently become a Discovery Toys Educational Consultant because their whole catalog of toys are specifically designed for developmentally appropriate play with an emphasis on multi-dimensional learning. They promote not just cognitive development, but physical, sensory, fine motor, language and social development, too!

Links for recommended toys and my Discovery Toys website are in the comments. All proceeds from Discovery Toys purchases go to either the purchase of new Discovery Toys for my pediatric therapy clinic, our local hospital play room. (You can always purchase a Discovery Toy to donate to either of those causes.)

I am an Amazon affiliate, which means if you click on any of my Amazon links and make ANY purchases, I earn 1-3% commission. (Your costs remain exactly the same as if you were shopping through the main Amazon link.) Moneys from Amazon commissions go toward providing giveaway items in the Preemie Power Facebook group!
