We all know that we need to limit screen time. But most people don’t know that we should be limiting the tech in our toys too. Why is that? Because electronic/battery operated toys do a lot of the thinking, talking, and problem solving for our kids. Why make animal sounds if the toy will make it for you? Of course, this isn’t to say that all toys with batteries are bad. I just want to encourage you to incorporate more battery free toys into playtime.

Our Favorite Battery Free Toys
Soft but stackable, this type of block is great for the younger toddler. I love that they are soft so I didn’t have to worry if my younger toddler tried chewing on them. They also have texture which is great for sensory play. We use these blocks to help with stacking, sorting, learning colors, and more.
Now that you have all of the best toys, it is time to play. Not only do your children need battery free toys, but they need you to sit on the floor and play too.
