KEEPING YOUR CHILD ENTERTAINED FOR LONGER THAN 5 MINUTES!

A toy that encourages learning and keeps a child entertained for longer than 5 minutes!

Is it even possible?

Many parents (ok- probably all parents) can relate to this problem. Will the toy be well loved or just end up living in the toy basket gathering dust? I'm a big fan of toy rotation and this is one way to help combat that problem. Take a toy away from a child for a couple of months and bingo- It's new again!... For another 5 minutes!

Naturally the kind of toy will also play a role in to how long it will be played with.

Let me introduce you to GEO TRIO! A versatile stacking toy that offers many learning opportunities and creative play.

Starting at about the age of 6 months babies are gaining their postural stability to be able to sit up by themselves.  They're also working on coordinating their movements.  Sitting up while stacking allows babies to get used to stabilizing their core as they move about and use their hands. 

Another benefit of stacking is known as crossing the midline; the ability for the right hand to cross over the center of the body to function in the left hemisphere, and vice versa.  This is an important skill for handwriting, cutting with scissors, reading, eating, and anything that requires the hand to move from left to right or right to left.

With the Geo trio your child will also learn to differentiate sizes, forms and colors but what about fun? The colourful shapes can be used as blocks that can be rolled, stacked (and of course chewed and slobbered!) The amusing character blocks can become anything according to their imagination.

 Geo Trio is available to buy and also to hire Australia wide.

 

Here is a review from parent blogger and wooden toy addict Toni from Finding myself young

"I love that it combines colours, shapes, faces and sizes. Not only can the pieces be stacked, they can also be sorted by colour, shape and size. It's also really cool that it has the three dimensional version of each shape at the top. This stacker is great for fine motor skills, hand/eye coordination, problem solving and spatial awareness. My daughter enjoys chatting away to the face blocks too, she babbles away to anything with a face {pictures, toys, bells etc}."

WHY HIRING TOYS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE!
WHY HIRING TOYS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE!

February 25, 2020

The idea to start a wooden toy hire business came about because of my own frustration. My eldest was born 10 days before Christmas (clearly I didn’t think that though). Getting all his toys at the same time of year he became bored of them by mid-year...
