The Learning Journey

We are lucky to have lots of older cousins in our family. So, we have inherited lots of fun toys as the cousins have cleaned out their closets. One of my daughter’s favorite things to do in her spare time is puzzles. She has loved them forever! One puzzle we inherited is made by the company, The Learning Journey. They make educational toys and products for children, and they are great for any preschooler.

We have one puzzle that we inherited from an older cousin called The Giant ABC-123 Train. This puzzle is a train that your child puts together and they have to recognize numbers, sequence, and colors. We have the numbers train that stretches out across the floor helping the child count from 1-10. To build the train, they have to match the car that has a number, to the same number of animals, to the same number of dots until you have a train that is five feet long. She loves it.

The other game we have from them is a matching game. Your preschooler will love matching the pictures, to the letters that the picture starts with. I am amazed at how a year ago, she couldn’t do this puzzle without a lot of help. Now, after 4 months of preschool, she is getting them all right!

I hate to have my house stock-piled with noisy toys, and things that don’t make my child think. Although, we do have plenty of those. This company has created products galore that will keep your child entertained, but make them use their brain as well. If you don’t need one for your child, what about a preschooler that you know in your life? Any of these products would make great gifts.

This is a company that if you aren’t familiar with, you should be. While, I have no affiliation with them whatsoever, I can say that as a Mom to a preschooler, I love their products!
