Bigshot : A Camera for Education
NOT a TOY but couldn't resist mentioning it here.
The enormous appeal of the camera can be used to turn it into a compelling tool for learning.
We believe that a camera designed for education must have three features.
First, it should be designed as a kit for assembly – putting the kit together should expose the user to a wide range of science concepts.
Second, it should include features that cannot be found in other cameras, allowing the user to explore new creative dimensions.
Finally, it should be low-cost, making it accessible to the less privileged.
Bigshot has been designed with these goals in mind. There is another important feature that sets Bigshot apart from virtually all educational kits – once you have built it, it is a fully functioning digital camera that you can use everyday!

Toys and Science
http://www-toys.science.unitn.it/toys/en-html/en-indice.html
Toys and Science
The present work is a simplified version of the itinerant exposition Toys and Science. This exposition was ideated a few years ago (the first edition dates back to 1992, and was held in Trento) by Professor Vittorio Zanetti, for the Physics Department of the Università degli Studi di Trento.
Since then, its success has been constantly growing, with so many demands from all over Italy that the current number of editions is near fifty.
The exposition is composed of amusing objects, mostly toys (property of the Physics Department), which are lent together with explaining files.
More than seventy different expositive units may be observed, each showing paradoxical and interesting aspects of physics. The units are arranged following the standard taxonomy for this science: mechanics, optics, astronomy, electro-magnetism, thermodynamics, chemistry, light, sound and so on.
