Hi All,

My inlaws will soon be returning from Canada and I would like parents to suggest some good educational toys for 4+ year old boy , toys wich your kid would have really enjoyed or helped in learning some scietific concept or whatever you found it to be really worth, needless to mention that I am looking for something which is not available in India.

waiting for your valuable comments,

Shaarav's Mom

Hi Shaarav's Mom,

Here are a few toys that will be good for your 4 year old :


Toy microscope

Scientific Explorer's science kits - they have various kinds of kits like a volcano kit, dinosaur kit etc.

Talking smart globe

If you are looking for activity based toy then here are a few things that I have bought recently for my children and they really like it :

Your daughter is 2.5 yrs old and she has outgrown it then its of no use for me as well as my son is also 3.

jayabs 2009-06-03 14:43:21


Shobha, where did u buy these toys ? do we get them in all toy shops or some specific ones only..?


shobha 2009-06-04 10:33:51


Any Canadian e-store like Amazon is where you should look for these toys.


jayabs 2009-06-04 11:58:51


dont v get them in shops where we can go and see the toys and buy ?

am in chennai  !! any suggestions ?

Oops! sorry, there was a slight mix up, that message was meant for Shaarav's mom, sonce she was looking to buy in Canada. I am not sure if you would find these toys  locally. However you could try places like Landmark.

BTW, Leapfrog is another toy manufacturer that makes great educational toys and they are available locally.

Please do keep us posted about your findings in the local Chennai stores.




jayabs 2009-06-04 16:48:52

Dear Shobha,

Am so happy , I get so many inputs for parenting and lot other things...  I was trying to check if this aqua doodle is available in india.... I just saw in ebay... Can it be bought from there? will that be original?

Is there any risk involved. The cost provided in ebay is around 2200 RS. Is this nominal?


Pls suggest. I am planning for a toy for my son for his 2nd Bday which on 04/July. before that I have to decide.


Pls suggest. Will I get in Landmark?
