Learning basic skills can be a little easier and a lot more fun with selections from Reeves International, a distributor and maker of quality children’s toys. While the big kids go back to school, little kids can get started with the basics. The Eggs Shape Sorter is a great hands on activity for little ones that are starting to develop hand eye coordination. Fitting the chunky easy to grab shapes into the carton is fun and encourages early learning. Plus in the middle of every egg is a different shape and color so you can work on colors and shapes as well. Sort by color, sort by shape and get the eggs in the carton.
Reeves Toys Scrambled Eggs Shape Sorter’s cute design featuring chunky pieces teaches shape sorting and color matching.
While Tolo’s electronic cash register encourages classic role play that introduces the basics of adding and subtraction.
I love registers and teaching the kids about math and counting and they love money. they have a play kitchen where they make up orders, create the orders and then make mom and dad pay for the food. The register is a great way to help them understand the concepts of addition and subtraction while exploring role playing. This register is complete with flashing lights and fun sounds.
The product I received for Miles and Zoe was the Addition/Subtraction Tables and the Multiplication magic tables. Zoe is really good at addition and subtraction and my husband told me he wanted me to help her get faster. When I showed him the tables we received from Reeves, he said yep that’s exactly what I wanted for them. It’s a simple fun keyboard they can push on to see the correct answer and they are so easy to take with us. I think we even took one on vacation with us. Zoe packed the bag and picked out what she wanted to take. She loves to learn.
The times tables are no problems for second and third graders with Multiplication Magic, a simpler, more engaging alternative to flash cards or timed tests.
Middle schoolers can even get involved with the fun with Geomag’s starter kits that combine fun construction play with the fundamentals of geometry, magnetism, and physics!
I would let both of my kids play with these guys. The Geomag’s bright magnetic rods and steel balls allow children to build complex models and geometric shapes. Plus you can explain the concepts of magnets the positive and negative attraction. When learning is fun it happens that much easier.
The cool thing about Geomag is that the magnets are fused into the rods, which are covered in plastic and are quite long – which means they pass ASTM and EN-71 testing standards. Plus, the whole range is for ages 5+, so the kids playing with it are much older. With Magnetix, the spherical balls were magnetic, which was a major cause of the problems if inhaled or swallowed.
