Check out the items we reviewed from Lakeshore Learning:
Kids get an up-close look at 12 amazing bugs—from a leaf beetle to a lantern fly! Each real specimen is permanently encased in indestructible acrylic, so kids can safely explore them from every angle. Plus, you get a fascinating fact book and handy magnifier—all in a cute 10 1/2" storage tray with labeled compartments for each bug.
This is a ton of fun! These cool bugs are great for exploration indoors or out.
I must admit, even B and I enjoyed checking out these cool critters:) The tray is perfect for keeping them all organized.
Now kids can see birds up close! Our viewer comes packed with amazingly lifelike photos and is super-easy for little ones to use: Children just slide a disk in…then pull the lever to switch from one fascinating photo to the next! Rugged 4 1/2" plastic viewer comes with 35 photos on 5 disks.
My kiddos have been wanting one of these viewers for a while, so they were super excited about this one. I love all of the different birds on the slides, though I wish their names were included on each slide instead of on the box whci my kiddos promptly threw out. Still a really cool viewer though!
Imagine it, then build it! Kids create project after project using smooth pine pieces in a wide variety of shapes. We’ve also included a lightweight hammer, nails, glue and more. The kit comes complete with a guide that has instructions for multiple projects, plus a handy 7 3/4" x 12" storage box. Kit includes a total of over 80 pieces.
Both kiddos were really excited about this one. Since we've been remodeling our home, they've been witness to lots of up close building projects. This kit allows them to improve their building skills and contains plenty of projects for both kiddos. Love it!
So many great, educational toys from Lakeshore Learning to jump start your kiddos imagination this Spring!
