I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
It's never too early to learn! Everyone agrees that toddlers and preschoolers are sponges, constantly absorbing incredible amounts of information before they even head off to Kindergarten. The key is to find the right toys that encourage learning while still being a ton of fun. Creative Baby boasts a full line of products in its Interactive Learning System (ILS) like its i-Mats, interactive activity cards and?Eric Carle Learning Table which can teach, entertain and mesmerize children of several age levels.
The Eric Carle Learning Table and Chair is for ages 3+ uses and uses the Creative Baby voice pen. When your child touches the pen to a picture it speaks back about what the picture is. The 3 languages include words in English, Spanish or Mandarin Chinese. The mat also includes two different games each. Such as "can you find the green pear." Then your child points the pen to the correct object and the pen lets them know if they are correct.
The two different mats are easily changed out and feature designs from the famous Eric Carle. The vibrant artwork encourages children to explore every corner of this fascinating table top. One side features The Very Hungry Caterpillar as a musical keyboard and the alphabet, animals and more! The other mat features animals, fruit and colors for all kinds of lessons fit for a preschooler.
They have several great products to keep little minds learning. Check out these five products from Creative Baby for ages 3 months through pre-K:
- Interactive Activity Cards (available in My Animal World, Under The Sea and Alphabet card themes)
- Sticker Books (available in Let's Eat Vegetables & Let's Eat Fruits sticker books)
- The World of Eric Carle Learning Table and Chair
- i-Mat (available in Alphabet, Under The Sea and My Animal World i-Mat themes)
- Voice Pen (works on all of Creative Baby's products from the Learning Table & Chair to flash cards)
I have always loved flashcards and these from Creative Baby are some of the most exciting ones yet. There is a card where you touch your pen to one of the three languages to start and then you can touch the pen right to the cards. It will tell you the letter and what the picture is. My daughter likes do methodically flip each one while learning the letter and later she usually lets me play with her. These are a great way for preschoolers to get to know their letters.
Creative Baby develops products which cultivate a true love of play in children while empowering parents to encourage and participate in their child's creative development. Look for these Creative Baby products on their website and at national retailers such as Costco and Burlington Coat Factory. These really are a ton of fun and my youngest here likes to call this her daily "homework" since she wants to be more like her big sister. This table is all play and she is building her skills all at the same time.
