If you've followed me for any length of time, you know that I love toys and games that are more than just fun. The best way to get your kids to learn is by engaging with them and having fun. Which is exactly how PlaSmart fits into this.
PlaSmart Makes Play More Than Just Fun
The Smartivity® Series by PlaSmart inspires enjoyable learning through innovation, discussion and questioning. The toys in this series help children use STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) ideas to develop practical, creative and even analytical intelligence, all through play. How cool is that?
Mechanical Xylofun Music Machine
In about ninety minutes, your children can be making their own sweet music with the Mechanical Xylofun Music Machine. This DIY set includes two hundred and eight pieces that your child will assemble and then be able to make music by turning the crank.
It will teach your son or daughter about vibrations, gears, and ratchet pawl mechanisms. It's not just a build it and play toy either. They can then mix the pegs up, to create different music, again and again. Pretty sweet right??
Fantastic Optics Kaleidoscope
If you have about forty-five minutes, then you and your children have time to create your very own kaleidoscope. PlaSmart's Fantastic Optic Kaleidoscope comes with one hundred and thirty-one pieces that can be assembled to make your own visual wonder. It teaches children about optics of mirrors and reflections, as well as the mixing of colors and changing shapes. Liam and I both love kaleidoscopes and could stare into them for hours!
More Fun from PlaSmart Smartivity Series
These are just two examples of the ingenuitive toys from PlaSmart. You and your kids can also create a Super Duper Propulsion Car, a Pump It Move It Hydraulic Crane, and a Roller Coaster Marble Slide. To see them all and choose which ones you have to have, head to PlaSmart. Easter will be here soon, and these fun toys would be a wonderful addition to any Easter basket.
