Another pick from Fat Brain Toys holds the 8th spot of the 2016-2017 best 5-year-old kids’ educational toys with AnimaLogic.

Fat Brain. That is such a neat-o brand name to me, because when you learn, the age-old thought is that your brain gets bigger. Hence, a fat brain. Ha, ha. Animalogics, the toy itself, is a buildable, stackable puzzle with colorful, animal-shaped elements. Includes instructions and templates for creative fun.
