Toys Starting with D – 19 Educational Ideas

If you are looking for some ideas for toys that start with D, look no further. I've written a list of 19 letter D toys that are both fun and educational.

Whether you're looking for toys that start with D to send with your child to school for show-and-tell or you're trying to come up with sound game objects to help your little one better understand the sound the letter D makes, this article is for you.

The letter D toys on this list are Montessori-aligned, for the most part, and all have educational value.

So, after the show-and-tell is over or after your child has mastered the letter D sound, they'll have a quality toy to play with.
