Head to Head

Features

Yoyo has some solid features including a 24 hour support phone line. They also have speedy shipping and free returns for up to 1 year from the time of purchase. There’s no live chat currently, however.

Magic Cabin has one of the best support features around with high ratings in all categories at Stella. They even have a large number of online chat hours for people who want to avoid the phones. Their range of educational toys is a bit limited compared to other sites like Yoyo, though they do have a number of unique puzzle games.

Magic Cabin appears to have better support options than Fisher Price does since Fisher Price doesn’t have open Live Chat agents available as often, and Magic Cabin seems to get better reviews and ratings in this department. Fisher Price has  probably the widest selection of educational games, however.

Price

Yoyo has a lot of the classic educational games in economical price ranges including the Shape Sorting Clock which costs $15.50 or so. There’s also the Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel game at $16.50 and the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Piggy Bank at $23. The variety on the site is considerable since they even have the Leapfrog My Own Leaptop device at $17.50.

Magic Cabin definitely has games in the higher price range with their Puzzle Blocks Set which is around $150, and the Sparkling Mandal Creative Puzzle from Grimm’s with 36 pieces that costs around $93. They particularly have a lot of puzzles, but only a few board games.

Fisher Price offers the Laugh & Learn Piggy Bank for $22. In general it has the lowest prices on educational games including modern options like the Laugh & Learn Apptivity Case for iPad that’s around $28 for making it easier for kids to use the iPad.
