As a mother of two toddlers, I love to use fun play to educate my children. By using educational toys, it keeps them engaged and they are more prone to remember what we are working on when it is fun! When I had the opportunity to select a toy for both Austin and Addie from OOmpa it was a very difficult decision. Since we have been trying to transition into cloth and wooden toys I was at just the right place!
US and Canada GeoPuzzle
We decided on a US and Canada GeoPuzzle for Austin. Since we are headed to Georgia and on to Florida, it has been a great learning tool we have used to teach the children not only where we live but also about where we will be traveling through. The kids love puzzles, this one is no different. It has bright fun colors and although a little challenging for my children to put together now on their own, it is a great way for us to work together. Puzzles are such fun ways for children to work on their motor skills as well as encourage logical thinking because they involve putting pieces together to form something bigger. The GeoPuzzle is made of recycled materials and durable enough to warrant a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
The GeoPuzzle is:
- Recommended For Kids 4 Years And Older
- Includes 70 pieces; completed puzzle measures 17 x 17 inches
- Made of durable, recycled materials and soy-based ink
- Designed In The USA By Our Earthy Friends At GeoToys
- Made in Germany
Elli Baby Doll
Addie loves her dolls just as I did when I was young. Having a desire to decrease the plastic in our home we have been searching out cloth babies. With a sweet face and European style, Elli makes a extra special, unique gift for your special little one. From the moment Addie saw her, she has not left her side at home. She sleeps next to Addie and even sits so still at the dinner table. With the exception of some shared chocolate on her face, she looks perfect, just as she did when she was pulled from the box. I love her fun cheerful colors!
The Elli baby doll is:
- Recommended For Kids 18 Months And Older
- Machine washable gentle cycle at 86 degrees
- Made of a cotton/polyester blend
- Measures 14.5 inches in height
- Lovingly Designed In Germany By Our Talented Friends At Kathe Kruse
- Made in Latvia
