Meadow Kids are a great little company supplying toys and games aimed at pre schoolers and children in Key Stage 1. I have two children, one who is in pre school and one in key stage 1 so I was keen to find out more about their products and try them out. We received a Tell Me About Today magnetic chart and a Reward Wooden Stamp Set to review.
The Tell Me About Today chart is a thick, sturdy piece of board with a corded hanging loop. the chart is magnetic and comes with 47 magnetic pieces with numbers for dates, days of the week, months, seasons, weather and years.
This is a fun, interactive and educational chart that can be updated each day with the day of the week and the date. Also things like the weather can be changed whilst other things need changing less often such as the month and season.
This has been great for both of my children and something that they enjoy doing and are learning from at the same time. My eldest who’s 7, has some concept of what date it is, and is eager to be first down in the morning to change it to the new day. My little boy who’s 4 and only just learning to read helps by finding the right numbers or looks for days starting with the right letter and together they are able to correctly update the chart. It’s also got us practising days of the week with my youngest and getting the months in the right order for my eldest.
The Reward Wooden Stamp Set consists of 15 wooden and rubber stamps along with two ink pads all contained in a little reclosable bag. It’s a cute little set with logos on the stamps such as:
- Super Duper
- Thumbs Up
- The Best
- Keep It Up
- You’re a Star
- Keep It Up
as well with a few others and four cute little picture stamps, smiley face, sad face, heart and star. All the large stamps have fun images around the words to make them attractive to children.
My children loved the idea of these and had fun stamping pictures each other had done with an appropriate stamp. They also play pretend schools a lot at home at the moment which these have been perfect for as part of their play.
What we are looking to do though is create their own reward charts which they can stamp each day with how well they did each activity. I’m hoping this will help motivate them into getting things done and doing as they are told!!
We’ve loved trying some products from the Meadow Kids range, they have proved both useful and educational, whilst being fun and entertaining for the children to do.
All reviews are my own opinions and I received the products in order to write the review.
