One of the most important things to me is spending quality time with my girls, and playtime is the perfect time for that. It builds and strengthens our relationship while they’re learning. Block toys are one of our favorite toys. The girls love building and creating new shapes, and I love knowing that while they’re playing, they’re also growing in all developmental areas (physical development, language development, cognitive development, social development, creativity and problem solving). Blocks help children learn to take turns and share materials, develop new friendships, become self-reliant, increase attention span, cooperate with others, and develop self-esteem. Building with blocks also requires fine and gross motor skills.
The LeapBuilders Fruit Fun Elephant takes the learning and developing to the next step with the interactive Smart Star and learning blocks. Their are 10 double-sided learning blocks that can be inserted into the interactive Smart Star for sounds and phrases about the coordinating colors and fruits. For even more interaction with your child, there is also a question button for your child to hear phrases and questions about the animals, and a music button that plays five melodies and four learning songs. Both of my girls love music (Hazel loves to sing and Iris loves to dance), so this is one of their favorite features.
It’s a 21 piece set animal-themed blog set that can build a large elephant, a small elephant, a flamingo, a store, or whatever you child’s imagination comes up with. And when you build on top of the interactive Smart Star cube, it triggers fun sounds effects. It also works with other LeapBuilder sets, so you can collect them all, and your child can have endless fun building and creating, learning and developing.
The set is intended for children ages 2+ years, but Iris had fun with it too and she’s only 14 months old. The blocks are big enough and easy to hold so she was able to stack the blocks on her own.
I truly believe that blocks are a toy that all children need. LeapFrog is giving away five sets of LeapBuilders toys. Enter to win here – http://bit.ly/LeapBuildersSweepstakes
