Ok, calling this an "educational toy" is a bit of a stretch, but they're fun. These are large, thick cards with bright pictures on them that have shiny/sticky/crinkly/fuzzy portions for young children to touch and enjoy. On the back they have the name of the item in English, Spanish, French (I think?), and Chinese along with pronunciation tips. They hold up well to typical toddler appreciation such as bending, throwing, stomping, and chewing, and for whatever reason both of my daughters love these things! This animal set is especially fun as it encourages active play by imitating the animals, making animal sounds, etc.
