This holiday season, be sure to visit Gator Tots. This wonderfully unique site was founded by a teacher turned mom who wanted to create a one stop shopping experience that would allow parents to purchase high quality educational toys and books. Mission accomplished! Gator Tots has amazing products and the site is very well organized. You can shop by age, brand, or even price range. The customer service is fantastic and shipping costs are minimal (free if you spend over $75).
Another great feature of Gator Tots is that all items on the site are "in stock" so no waiting for other companies to drop ship. You order, they send!
One of my favorite products at Gator Tots are their beautiful embossed wooden alphabet blocks. I've seen my fair share of blocks and these are by far superior! They remind me of vintage blocks, old fashioned, simple, and endless play possibilities. These alphabet blocks encourage infants to practice motor skills by stacking and develop cognitive skills through sorting, and for older kids, they're great for letter and number recognition practice.
Made in the USA, the 27-piece set of 1 3/4 inch cubes is made from basswood with bright, child-safe inks. Embossed letters, numbers, and animals provide 4 complete alphabets, 3 sets of numerals, and 27 different animal pictures.
