Best Tech-Free Toys for Babies and Toddlers

Give a child a toy that beeps, moves, whirrs or sings, and they’ll be mesmerized long enough for you to pour yourself another cup of coffee. But those electronic toys can only hold a child’s attention for so long.

Tech-free toys encourage exploration, creativity, imagination and open-ended play, which can engage children through a wide range of ages and interests. Because tech-free toys often don’t have one set way to play, they can be used and combined in all sorts of ways that challenge children and help them build strategies for focus and resilience.

Rest assured, parents will feel #blessed that tech-free toys will help boost baby’s skills while avoiding screen time. (And as a bonus, tech-free toys also save you the headache of frantically searching the house for AAA batteries.) Here are some of our favorites:
