Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) November 09, 2015
For parents in search of toys that are both fun and educational, brain training company LearningRx has put together “The Smart Mom’s Toy Box.” The toys are all award winning, brain boosting, and under $25 on Amazon.com.
“Parents don’t need to break the bank to get quality toys that build cognitive skills,” says Tanya Mitchell, VP of Research & Development for LearningRx. "All of the toys in the Smart Mom’s Toy Box cost less than $25 and you can help strengthen a child’s processing speed by using a stopwatch for certain activities. These 20 games have been chosen for their educational benefits; they help strengthen a variety of cognitive skills—like memory, auditory and visual processing, attention, processing speed, and logic & reasoning—which are the essential tools needed to learn, memorize, process, and recall information.
