Preschool children love to run around. They are beginning to test their physical strengths. They really like to be challenged to ride tricycles, use their finger control and to build things. Toys that are great for this age group are books, wooden trains and outdoor toys like swings and slides.
This holiday season there are a couple of great toys that can also help your Preschooler develop these abilities too.
