I just thought I'd share a link, I just setup a new community called Brighter Crayons, specifically for educational toys.
It can be found here: http://community.livejournal.com/bright
If you've found a product as a parent (or educator) that has really helped your child learn, or if you make educational products, please feel free to stop by and drop a link.
Also, if you work with children as a parent or educator on a regular basis and are looking for new educational toys and tools, feel free to join or watch the community. It's pretty empty right now, but I'll be adding links as I come across them and hope others will post as they find things.
