Learning through fun with Learning Resources

I have always been one of those parents that would choose an educational toy over {for example} a big monster truck {which my 4yo keeps asking me for!}. Not because I’m a fun sponge, but because I believe that learning through play is a massive thing.

I especially love educational toys that you normally wouldn’t buy or choose for your child and recently I received a lovely package from Learning Resources and I couldn’t wait to show them to my 4year-old.

The Puzzle Globe was the first product we pulled out of the box – it’s aimed at children aged 3-7yrs and it’s a hands-on introduction to Geography. I love the look of this Puzzle globe and it will give Annabelle a basic knowledge of geography e.g where certain countries are, what animals can be found in these places and landmarks too.

Through playing with the puzzle globe she will be able to know what country is where – which is more than I knew at 4yrs old! This has been a huge hit with her as she is really loving her puzzles at the moment and this is a fun twist on the more traditional puzzles she would be used too.

She is already telling me what animals can be found in South America and what landmarks can be found in Asia. So the Puzzle Globe gets a big thumbs up from us. 

Annabelle, being much like her big sister has quite a curious nature – so when she was sent this My First Microscope I was very excited for her. It’s suitable for ages 3yrs+ and we have been checking out all kinds of trinkets and things with it. From acorns, shells, volcanic rock that her big sister has an unhealthy amount of and she’s been really loving it. 

It’s super easy to use, and the little dial on the side can be turned forwards & backwards to raise or lower the scope. It’s the perfect first microscope for curious little ones. 

The Design & Drill take along toolkit was something I have never personally seen before and something that would really help with your child’s fine motor skills. 

You are supplied with a drill, including a selection of different drill bits and screws – and they can be drilled into the toolbox itself.  A very fun toolkit and something my 4yr old has really enjoyed playing with. Watching her little fingers change drill bits, line up her screws & drill them in is pretty cool. 

I am such a huge fan of educational toys and Learning Resources has such an amazing range, you can check them out at https://www.learningresources.co.uk/ 

Do you have a curious little one at home? What would they love most from the products above?

    These are adorable! I am the same, educational toys are amazing and tend to keep them occupied for so much longer anyway! Love the puzzle globe so much!

    I honestly love these types of toys for kids. It’s so much better than just getting a toy that they will bore of or throw away in a couple of weeks. I love that they will learn as they play too.

    I always think when learning happens so much easier when you are having fun, this sounds like a lovely way to get kids learning through play.

    I always think educational toys make the best toys as children learn through the play and take it in subconsciously! These are fun, bright and interesting enough to engage any childs attention

    What great toys. I agree with you that a learning element is a great bonus. So many toys hold kids’ interest for a few minutes before they’re on to the next thing.
