The Best Preschool Products of 2024

Finding the best Preschool Products can be a daunting task. When choosing toys, games and other items for your preschool aged child, less is definitely more. Simple, durable, and open-ended materials that invite kiddos to imagine, explore, create, and stretch their developing language and reasoning skills are the way to go. Preschoolers have a unique stage of development where they are rapidly growing and acquiring new skills. At this age, their focus should be on fostering a well-rounded development that includes various aspects of their cognitive, physical, social, and emotional growth. The key areas we focused on for these award winners were:

  1. Social and Emotional Development: Preschoolers should develop social skills such as sharing, taking turns, and cooperating with others. They should also learn to manage their emotions, express themselves effectively, and develop empathy towards others.
  2. Language and Communication: Preschoolers are in a critical phase of language development. They should be encouraged to expand their vocabulary, develop listening skills, and engage in conversations. Reading aloud to them, providing opportunities for storytelling, and engaging in meaningful conversations are all beneficial for their language development.
  3. Cognitive Development: Preschoolers are curious learners, and their cognitive development should be nurtured through age-appropriate activities. They should be encouraged to explore, ask questions, solve simple puzzles, sort objects, and engage in imaginative play. These activities help develop their problem-solving skills, critical thinking abilities, and understanding of basic concepts.
  4. Fine and Gross Motor Skills: Preschoolers should engage in activities that promote the development of both fine motor skills (such as using scissors, holding a pencil, and manipulating small objects) and gross motor skills (such as running, jumping, balancing, and throwing). These activities contribute to their physical coordination, strength, and dexterity.
  5. Creativity and Imagination: Preschoolers have vivid imaginations, and fostering their creativity is essential. Activities such as drawing, painting, building with blocks, engaging in pretend play, and exploring various art forms allow them to express themselves and develop their creativity.
  6. Early Math and Literacy Skills: While formal academic instruction is not necessary at this stage, introducing early math and literacy concepts in a playful manner can lay a foundation for future learning. This can involve counting objects, recognizing shapes and colors, identifying letters and their sounds, and engaging in basic rhyming and pre-reading activities.
  7. Independence and Self-help Skills: Preschoolers should be encouraged to develop independence in activities like dressing themselves, feeding, and taking care of personal hygiene. Building self-help skills fosters their sense of autonomy and self-confidence.

All of winners of The Best Preschool Products of 2024 match one or more of these categories that we believe are essential to a child’s development. Preschoolers learn best through play, exploration, and hands-on experiences, so creating a nurturing and stimulating environment that allows for their natural curiosity to flourish is key.

 NOTE: Winners are listed alphabetically.

The  sensory compression top can be worn as an outer or inner garment while providing deep pressure calming and organizing sensory input. Relevant styling is the key to this non-stigmatizing apparel. These popular shirts are designed to hug the shoulders, body trunk, and hips. Compression increases endorphin levels and decreases heart rate and blood pressure. Deep touch pressure causes the release of both serotonin and dopamine in the brain which are “happy” neurotransmitters that produce a feeling of calm.
