As so many kids (and teachers) are preparing to head back to school (or maybe already there!), Lakeshore Learning is a great resource for classroom and educational materials. However, they have just launched a new line of educational toys for the home! I was happy to work with them on this review – and love so many of the new toys they have introduced for anyone to use at home with their kiddos.
Lakeshore Learning at Home
The new learning at home offers fun items for just about any age. There are some really cute things like My Farmers’ Market, or hands on science like a Fascinating Facts Human Body Game that features an anatomic torso for a little bit older kids. So many of the things are items that they could already be using in the classroom for hands on learning, but are great to have at home for added learning time OR if you are homeschooling. The Allowance Game can teach your kids about earning money by completing chores, but small setbacks like forgetting your homework can teach simple money management and consequences. Toys for younger children like soft blocks and wooden puzzles are a great way for toddlers to learn as they manipulate small objects and see repetitive colors and letters.
I received the Soft and Safe Jumbo Stacker for our little one (we are adopting, and still waiting for a referral). It is a super soft, fun way for little ones to learn how to stack the rings, name colors, animals, etc. as they are playing. I like that it is fabric and easy to throw in the washer, and I don’t have to worry about the dangers of BPA or other chemicals found in plastics. It measures 15” high – so it is for a little bit bigger kids (maybe at about a year) – but we are excited to put it to use soon enough!
You can find educational toys for your home at LakeshoreLearning.com/home– with toys starting at about $5. My Jumbo Stacker can be purchased from Lakeshore Learning for $29.99.
