With summertime in full swing, the weather outside is hot hot hot and my kiddos inside my house have lots of energy. We spend many many hours each week swimming but when the weather is stormy or when my kiddos need to be inside to unwind, sometimes they get bored of their regular toys. I love it when my kids play with toys that are fun and at the same time education. Enter The Learning Journey toys.

My kiddos are young. But STEM toys still apply to them. My daughter is two and a half and this ABC Melody Maker perfect for her age. ABC Melody Maker is is an exciting electronic toy featuring five fun games sure to entertain your child. This colorful interactive unit features an activity selector that puts kids in charge of choosing their fun. The activities range from easy to more difficult. Each activity will teach your child important skills like sounding out letters, recognizing letters, numbers, and playing music.
It has been fun watching my daughter learn how to use this toy. As she’s becoming more knowledgeable on how to use it, she’s spending more and more time working on the different activities.
My son is four and a half and he LOVES toys where he has to build things. Techno Gears Marble Mania Whirler is perfect for children who like to build things.

But in a few years, he will be able to build it on his own. This is a toy that will grow with your child!
