Educational Discovery Toys: Travel Tracks for kids
Why this toy is so beneficial for learning . . .
Learning is fun because… it's all about Discovery Toys In the beginning, I found this at Saver's in Orem Utah, and paid $1 for this. Saver's is a Thrift store, very similar set up like Salvation Army and Good Will, however, their store is a lot nicer. There are organized racks of clean clothing, organized selves and bins for stuffed animals and kid's toys, books organized into sections like Kids books, informational, romance, etc. This is a store that I really enjoy shopping at because we're on a tight budget. So when I find a really good deal, I have to blog about it. I mean who wouldn't want to know about an amazing product? Ding! Ding! Ding! I love hearing from my friends, from blogs, and peers what the best toys, and products are. Especially awesome products for kids, because my kids rule my life right now. My product review is from personal experience with this toy, and how my kids enjoyed using it. As it is a Discovery Toy branded toy, I know it cost more than Thrift store pricing. However, I'm very grateful that I was able to find it at such a good deal. This was a great treasure that I found, because it introduced my family to the company Discovery Toys. A company that focuses on helping children learn in fun exciting ways. When you find a good company, with great products, you want to be able to easily purchase more products from them. However, I have found that Discovery Toys is one of those companys where you need to find a Rep who sells the products, because only specialty stores sell these products.
Check out this Product... This was a complete hit in my house! See, my kids love to put the puzzle piece travel tracks into different shapes, and change the pathways to have the jeeps travel through the topography type of map full of volcanoes, glaciers, beaches, forestry and lots of other land. I found that for very young children this is a great parent child time toy, as you can help teach the child about the different geographic areas the vehicles travel through, and you can play one on one with your child as there are only 2 jeeps that come in the package. With older children they will be able to place the puzzle pieces, interlock the pathways for the vehicles, and be able to create a whole new world of imagination play. I like to think of this as an educational version of the popular Hot Wheels tracks. The jeeps are child hand sized (roughly 2 inches or so in size) The only negative thing about this set is if one of the vehicles breaks (like the wheels break) you can't substitute it for a vehicle you can buy in Wal-Mart or Target. You have to go back to a company Rep who sells Discovery Toys, and work with them. I highly suggest this product for any of the following: in the home, Preschools, Home school groups, Joy schools, Co-op schools, and public school media or class rooms.
