I heard this guy on a TED talk and then went to his website.  It's pretty awesome.  Here's a link to where he categorizes the toys based on what they teach...astronomy, math, etc.

Here's the TED Talk:

What a neat website.  I favorited it right away so that I can look around a little more later.  Thanks for sharing.

Thank you! I saw his TED talk and was enthralled, but I never thought to look and see if he has a website.  That is great!
