A set of wooden blocks is the #1 best open-ended toy money can buy.
You can never go wrong investing in a set of blocks because there's so many play possibilities for years.
As children grow older, add to the collection with different kinds of blocks, like the water blocks, and the building and imaginative play opportunities become endless.
There is also natural mathematical learning that occurs when playing with blocks. Blocks teach about shapes. Children learn to combine smaller shapes to create new larger shapes. For example, combine two small triangles to create one large square or combine two small squares to create one large rectangle.
