As the world is getting more interconnected, an increasing number of parents are interested in exposing their children to a foreign language at a young age. A young child might not understand a formal language class, or have the patience to sit through it. However, there are many toys with which a child can still be introduced to other languages through play. These are just a few examples of toys that can be used to help teach Spanish.
