Best Educational Toys for Boys
Construction toys are some of the best educational toys for little guys. These include building blocks, erector sets and anything that requires the child to build something. Even simple puzzles are great educational toys because the child learns that there is just one way a puzzle piece fits very quickly.

The reason these toys are the best is because they promote a convergent and divergent thought process.
Convergent thought aids in the child learning faster, teaches them to follow directions and helps them come to their own thought out conclusions.
Divergent thinking is the thought process that moves ideas into different directions and can lead to new and better outcomes.
Both these types of thought processes help the brain to develop more fully and give the child better problem solving skills.
Toys do not have to be boring in order to be educational. The best boys educational toys are probably toys that you are already buying for them. Anything that makes them think and puzzle out a problem is great toys to get the thought process started.
When they have to complete a task to see the result, they also learn patience. Construction toys do this in spades and it also helps them with their hand to eye coordination in a much better way than video games offer.
