Special thanks to Learning Resources for providing complimentary products for review and giveaway. All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always.
I am so deeply in love with the maker movement happening in our world right now. I love any opportunity to encourage my children to use their minds AND their hands and to create! This can be purely artistic in nature, purely functional in nature, or even somewhere in between.
So I totally dig the Gears! Gears! Gears! products that Learning Resources is currently offering.
We have been checking out the Sweet Shop from Gears! Gears! Gears! but please know that they have a wide variety of offerings just in case your kid wouldn’t necessarily be thrilled with lollipops and cupcakes. 🙂 The gears are really easy to put together in a wide variety of ways to make some rather cool movements. My 3-year-old feel comfortable and confident arranging them to make the perfect sweet shop, usually for Pinkie Pie to work in and for all her My Little Ponies to come enjoy.
This is a fantastic toy to encourage fine motor skills and to encourage a child to create something of their own invention. We are really pleased with it!
One lucky Stuff Parents Need reader will win your choice of the Sweet Shop or the Pet Playland from Learning Resources!
