MindWare has such an amazing selection of educational games, learning toys, and more!
I just love browsing through all of the wonderful and educational items they carry! I am a big fan of toys that help children grow and develop, and MindWare seems to carry the best of the best in those types of products! Over the holidays, there is a lot of focus on what the "cool toys" are, but those items don't necessarily have much educational or development focus to them. With MindWare, their learning toys are cool so you really get the best of both worlds.
My kids and I recently had the opportunity to try out some Imaginets from MindWare. Winner of the Major Fun Award, Parents' Choice Gold Award, and Parenting for High Potential Recommended Award, this fun magnetic toys is a great way to boost fine motor and visual thinking skills in kids. My daughter has been learning a lot about shaped lately. How to dissect a picture by what shapes it is made up of and how to form pictures using shapes as well. That's basically what Imaginets is all about. You get a sturdy wood carrying case complete with cute rope handles and inside are a ton of brightly-colored magnetic blocks. Kids use the blocks and arrange them on the boards to replicate designs. There are 50 full-color design challenges, including animals, faces, vehicles, sports, structures and more that come with the toy, but my kids also like to come up with their own designs as well! An added bonus to this toy is that the magnetic board surface also doubles as a dry-erase board, so kids can decorate a backdrop, add letters, words, and more to their creations! I really like this toy because not only has it helped my daughter with her learning, it has also been great to have as a "quiet" toy. My kids can spend hours making different things on it and enjoying some great focused play. Overall, we all really love it!
MindWare has lots of great educational games and products to choose from which make perfect holiday gifts! We already have their Cat in the Hat I Can Do That! game which is a blast!
