Educational toys: Use toys that are safe and that stimulate the mind and the body. Children respond best to quality time with parents doing simple things. Reading to them, crawling with them, inventing games to play with boxes, etc. Toys can be additional help and should not replace one on one time. Puzzles for right age can be good. Legos can be good for the right age, etc.

Interactive: Preemies, like full term babies, like toys with different textures and colors. When they are young stark contrasting colors such as black and white help brain development. As they get older toys of different shapes, colors and textures are interesting. As they gain more control of their hands toys you can stack or pour in and out of are fun and help their motor development and control.
