Learning Can Be Fun with Toys Giveaway (ARV $150)

Welcome to the Learning Can Be Fun With Toys Giveaway!

Children love to play. I believe that they learn best when they learn through play. I choose toys for my kids based on both their educational and entertainment values. There are so many educational toys on the market. Finding the best ones through trial and error would be a daunting task, and financially infeasible for most of us. Honest reviews from other parents could really help us out. Better yet, you could win a bunch of mom and dad tested/approved toys for free! Read on--

One very lucky winner will receive ALL these cool prizes!
#1: 50 cars from Dallas Vintage Toys (ARV $49.95)
#2: Teaching Tiles™ Early Learning Tiles Beginning Reading Center (ARV $49.99)
#3: Phonics Firefly (ARV $49.99)

We'd like to thank "Early Learning Center" and "Dallas Vintage Toys" for providing these toys and learning tools!

I learned to use toys as learning tools after taking Special Education in college and working with children in a therapeutic riding program. Toys can be an excellent resource of teachers. Thanks for the giveaway.

I agree! Toys are, not only fun, but good practice. From building motor skills and recognition in babies, to building up cognitive thinking in older kids :) They can be great in a lot of ways and being fun just makes kids want to do them more :)

I am of "the old school" type. I firmly believe that "play" is learning and shaping young pliable minds!

So, when kids play- they are always learning something! The make-believe toys are super! When kids use their imagination, they learn to entertain themselves, and not "be" entertained.

And to think to solve problems. So, yes, toys can be used to learn things!
Even blocks at a young young age, they are teaching themselves patterns, motor skills, etc.

Ravyn Jazper-Hawke said...

Toys are a great idea for learning tools. Anything that piques a child's interest should be used as a gateway for learning!

Chelsea said...

I think it's brilliant to make educational toys that kids actually want to play with... It makes them learn with out feeling the stress of learning

Angela said...

I teach my kids with toys everyday. One of my favorites is the Melissa and Doug shape sorting clock

sarah sparks said...

i think it's a great idea

Chevelle Sopkin said...

I absolutely agree! We have found many toys to make learning fun for our 3yr old son. He's a very active boy, so when we use things he already enjoys using, like blocks, cars & bead counters... we have half the battle licked!

I completely agree! I have always used toys and little things around the house to help my daughter. Will do the same with my son when he is a bit older.

I think toys are a super toy to get kids to learn and they don't even realize they are!

I'm all for it. I think any toy can be used to learn. You could set up a shop w/ Barbie acessories to tech kids about money management. YOu could set up a ramp jump w/ toy cars to teach about angles. You could pretend to fix "injured" stuffed animals. The list goes on and on!

Leslie S. said...

I use all kinds of toys and little candies to help teach.Three of my four children have learning obstacles and hands on works better with them.I learned a trick years ago of making letters out of play doh to help teach them and it works great.I home school all of them so we come up with some creative ways to learn.

I do use toys a lot in math with my kids and they really enjoy it and don't always realize that they are learning too. wilcarvic

I love the idea of learning toys as a learning tool. For me, anything that gets a child excited to learn, is a good thing! (well, aside from the dangerous or inappropriate)

Jennifer Peaslee said...

I think it's a great way to teach

Emily @ Busy Mommy said...

educational toys are the best! I definitely think children can learn easier.

Sam Stamp said...

I have used some toys as learning devices for children but guess i have ignored some of the best ones

kathy pease said...

I think its great also when a child has fun learning it makes them want to learn all the more

Tami Valentine said...

I always thought about the learning aspect of the toys for my kids. As they got older, in their teens, it was more for fun.

Caitlin McClure said...

Toys are a great way to get kids interested in learning something

I think every kid learns differently so if it helps and makes things fun for them than it might be better!
