Kids get excited about learning to read and write. Other than talking, this is how we communicate and it is essential that kids pick it up as fast and accurately a possible. So here is a magical toy that has been a big help in our household. It is called the LeapFrog Scribble and Write. The keypad has the alphabet and numerals one through ten. Punch one and the screen lights up with the symbol for them to trace.
Yes, it is as simple as that. Trace the lights to learn how to write! New writing accuracy feedback and easy-grip stylus now teaches A-Z and 1-10 to kids anywhere. Keep one in the car for trips and keep one at home for daily practice. Ages 3 and up will learn their letters and numbers quickly. So invest in one or two today.
When I was getting ready to put on my daughter’s fourth birthday party, I wanted to make sure that I would be able to give her something that she would be able to really enjoy. I wanted the party to be extra special so I started to look for some fun items that I might be able to use to entertain all of the kids at the party in a way that would be a lot of fun.
I ended up looking at different types of bounce houses, because I remembered how much fun my daughter had when we played in a bounce house at a local festival. I decided to go ahead and buy a cute inflatable bounce house that all of the kids would be able to enjoy. It was so much fun to imagine all of the kids bouncing around in this all of the time.
At the party, this bounce house was a real success since all of the kids were so excited to be able to be playing in and around it. My daughter was so proud to have one of these in her yard for all of the kids to use. She loved bouncing all day in the bounce house that I put out there for her and the other kids.
My mom read to us as children and passed on to us her love of reading. She also passed on her love of grammar and words. So nothing gets the family going like a good word game. Our current favorite is Bananagrams.
The letter tiles, similar to scrabble tiles, are presented in a banana bag which is not only cute but brightly colored and easy to find, as well as easy to pack for travel fun. One to eight players race against each other to build crossword grids. This is the anagram game that will drive you bananas. So add this to your educational games cabinet today for home and travel fun for the whole family.
The Olympics are upon us and the world is on display to children all over the world. Their curiosity kicks in and you are missing a huge learning opportunity if you don’t have a world globe at your fingertips. From there you can unlock the world map of countries and the seven wonders, and home versus where the Olympics are being held. It will teach your child how to find continents and oceans, mountain ranges, and deserts. Learning to use a globe or map is tantamount to learning to use any information tool. It is a must.
So what do you do, run out and buy a globe? You could, there are so many great and beautiful world globes available at your fingertips. Some of them are art. But you could also buy these wonderful household musts:
- Teaching kids about geography does not have to be intimidating with this fun 12″ inflatable globe. It is transparent and features brilliant colors, making it both fun and educating! Kids can kick it, throw it, roll it or simply learn from it!
- Colorful world map globe style bounce ball helps relieve stress by squeezing it or bouncing it. Great toy for the kids, children and even adults. Have fun with this soft and educational gel ball!
And there are more choices to introduce the globe to your kids. Have a look for yourself…
There is nothing more delightful to the child in all of us than a set of the classic stories of a boy and his stuffed friends. With the original illustrations (not the Disney-fied stuff), these are the books I remember my mother reading to us when I was “very young.” Many kids today may be familiar with a few of these stories from the Disney shorts (combined later into a feature length version and on video). Most kids also know Winnie the Pooh because of Disney (who even brought out a line of “classic Pooh” products based on the original toys and illustrations). These stories were beautiful, to begin with – precisely why Walt brought them to the big screen.
Filled with childhood honesty and simplicity, these were the tales Milne told his own child, Christopher Robin, inspired by the boys’ stuffed toys and the animals that lived nearby. Give your kids the gift you remember and start by reading the original stories, to them and with them, as they were originally written. As a set, it’s a wonderful keepsake to pass on to generations, and you will enjoy it all over again.
I recently was trying to find some different types of electric toys that my kids could use since they went over to a friend’s house and had so much fun playing with an electric vehicle that they had for the kids. I decided that it would be best if I were able to find something like this since my kids kept talking about how cool this toy was all of the time.
I looked at a lot of wonderful little vehicles that my children would be sure to love playing with on a regular basis. It was really fun to choose some of these different types of toys to see how my children would react to them. I showed them an electric scooter for kids and they both got so excited about the toy that I knew that it was the right one for me to buy.
I was very happy when I ended up selecting such a cute little scooter that my children would be able to enjoy playing with. I bought it home and right away they were enjoying riding it all around the yard. I am really glad that I was able to find something cool like this that my children would be able to enjoy playing with.

My children don’t get new toys all of the time, but when I find something that I know they are likely to enjoy I am sure to pick it up. Out of all the different toys they own, they do have a few favorites which include many different toys that allow them to play pretend. They like to mimic things that my husband and I do with the right kind of toys.
This is why when we started grilling this summer, I started to look for some different types of grilling toys that they might be able to use on a regular basis. I managed to find some great Little Tikes toys that were made in the shape of various grilling foods and tools. Since my children love most of the toys they have from this brand, I made sure to get these for them.
I love watching my children play with all of these new toys. They really seem to love being able to pretend to grill up a hot dog or to put together a hamburger. I feel that these toys are really helping them to use their imaginations as they play together on a regular basis. It is truly something to watch.
