As mothers we strive for balance. On the one hand, we want our littlest ones to be ready when school starts. On the other hand, we want them to play as much as possible at this stage. So, how do we strike that balance?
The balance, clearly, is in encouraging as many educational play experiences as possible. And that’s not that hard! Children are built to learn from every day play. And The Learning Journey knows that, which is why they offer many hands-on educational experiences.
“The Learning Journey has been designing and manufacturing an exclusive line of award-winning children’s interactive educational products. All products at The Learning Journey encourage learning and develop confidence as they enhance a child’s potential. All products build on the skills necessary for children to be prepared for school and beyond.”
The Learning Journey’s toys have been a favorite of ours for a while. One of my son’s favorite toys is their ABC Melody Maker – he mimics all the sounds the different pictures make. I’m so excited to share with you some of their other fun options, perfect for this holiday season.
The Learning Journey Play and Learn Shopping Basket:
M was so excited when he saw the apple in this set! Perfect for pretend play, your child can learn all about shopping, which foods are healthy, food groups, and more. The eggs come in a plastic container and are so realistic! the cardboard boxes feature some packaged goods with fun illustrations that your non-reader can relate to. And the shopping basket not only corrals it all, it also, of course, offers a high quality pretend play experience. For ages 3+.
Remote Control Shape Sorter – Jumbo the Jet Plane:
M is obsessed with airplanes. We live right near JFK airport, and every time he hears one, he screams “airplane!” That’s what he said when I first gave him Jumbo the Jet. But when I showed him the remote control (his first one ever), his mouth dropped in amazement. He is obsessed, and now repeats all of the captain’s words.
The Learning Journey’s remote control shape sorters offer a well-rounded learning experience for your little one. M is still learning which shape goes where, and this how to identify colors. This fun toy is helping him learn, through play. The remote control is very easy for a little boy like him to use.
The plane has three play modes: learn the colors and shapes, find it, and of course remote control mode. It plays fun songs and lights up as it drives. For ages 18 months +.
Touch & Learn – Phonics Bot:
Children love blinking lights and fun noises, so why not use that to teach them? The Phonics Bot asks over 350 questions and has a colorful touch pad sensor panel for your child to use to answer. It teaches phonics, alphabet and spelling with four fun game modes.
The Learning Journey’s exciting selection of toys allow children to learn without even realizing it. They allow us to raise children who are smart and ready for school, without compromising on play in those early years.
