Holiday GG 2010 Learning Resources Review and Giveaway



As most of you know by now I am a certified Elementary Teacher. Most Teachers have heard of Learning Resoures because they are a leading manufacturer of innovative, hands-on educational materials for classrooms.

I did not know until recently that they provide learning toys for the home as well.
I want to say right off the bat I love Learning Resources. It has always been my goal since my son was born to not just buy him any old toys but instead provide him with toys that promote learning.

Learning resources does just that. They provide award-winning educational toys and products.

Shane was sent the Sky High Scoops™ colorful count and stack Electronic Game and the Primary Science Set.



About The Sky High Scoops™ colorful count and stack Electronic Game

"Dish up hours of delicious learning and fun with this colorful count and
stack game. How high can the scoops be stacked? Listen carefully for
the color and number of scoops to stack next, but look out! The wrong
move can topple the whole sundae! Be the first player to stack all of your
scoops (plus the whipped topping) and win the game. Includes 16
colorful plastic ice cream scoops (2 each of red, orange, yellow, blue,
green, brown, pink and white). This game reinforces color recognition,
number sense, counting and fine motor skills (stacking). Features talking
dish and sound effects, with adjustable volume. Requires 3 AA batteries,
not included. For 2-5 players. ages 3+"

Shane is really good with colors and numbers but its always nice to have a game that will provide a fun way to reinforce these skills. He has already had so much fun with this game and I am happy to know he is enjoying learning and reinforcing skills.

About the Primary Science Set



"Go mad over science with these real tools! Sized for little hands, this
colorful set entices children to experiment and explore. Includes beakers,
magnifying glass, funnel, test tubes with stands, goggles, and more, all
made of durable plastic. Also includes Activity guide and Cards with fun,
easy-to-do experiments. There are 12 pieces in this set. Ages 4 and up."

Science is very important. It helps teach problem solving skills as well as helps children make Sense of the World. Per recommendation on the box we have decided to wait till Shane's next Birthday to give him this toy. We feel he will get the most out of it if we wait till he is a little older but I know Shane will love this toy and it will help introduce him to science.


These educational toys would be a top pick on my list for gifts for children this holiday season.
