Brio & Ravensburger: Learning & Fun in One!

Posted by on Dec 19, 2016

We go to work, we come home. It’s a pattern we follow and our kids watch us do each day. If your littles are like mine, they love to pretend play with what they see. An excellent version of pretend play with home and work is in the BRIO Playsets. These BRIO playsets are TOUGH. They will handle the sometimes not so gentle hands of your littles, take a beating and keep on providing hours of entertainment and learning. Let your little go from their BRIO Family Home Playset to work at the BRIO Central Fire Station!

 My kids are NOT easy on their toys. My delight in both the Brio Family Home Playset and Central Fire Station was the durability. I would much rather put in a bit more out of my pocket and have it last than hear the breakdowns of my littles when their beloved toy breaks after a few minutes of play. You will NOT have that problem with Brio. The pieces are wooden, the paint is vibrant and the attention to detail is amazing. So let them play! You never know who they will be!

And if your little decides they need a bit more excitement in their life, then introduce them to the Ravensburger Science X Smartscope Science Kit! With kids, what they want to be when they grow up can change by the minute! Let them explore the science and see if they will be the next great inventor! The best part is you use what you see in Nature!

Ravensburger Science X Smartscope Science Kit

  • Explore the amazing world of microscopic with Smart scope
  • Take pictures of magnified objects to share with your friends or stream them to your big screen TV
  • No app download or in app purchases
  • Features: 2 magnification levels, removable light source and travel pouch
  • Smartphone or tablet required (not included!)

The great thing about this Smartscope Science Kit, is the shareable factor. You don’t even need to buy or download an app to have it either. My son put it directly on the big screen of the TV to display what he had created with his “scientific mind”. It was fun to watch and things you see at a distance were brought “up close and personal and magnified”. Something just like a “real” scientist would do. This is a great learning tool as well. Send your kids on their own nature adventure as they bring something back to put in the kit. You just collect something from Nature or near you, activate the camera on your smartphone or tablet and the Smartscope will magnify your object. Talk about up close and personal! Get your kids into Nature and watch what they bring back! FYI- beware of bugs…they are a popular one with my boys.
