I was recently contacted by CSN Stores to do a review and giveaway. When I looked at their website, I was a bit overwhelmed by the over 200 stores with just about everything you can think of for sale. Did I want a baby item since we just had a new baby? Something for the kitchen? For the pets? But then I saw the link to the Developmental and Educational Toys and knew I just had to get something for Jimmy for Tot School. They have so many awesome activities and games that I had such a hard time just picking a couple. I will definitely be ordering more!
I love how educational it is. Jimmy has been doing so well with his letters and now he can practice spelling words with the Melissa & Doug See & Spell. It does state that it is for ages 4 and up so keep that in mind, but I decided to get it for Jimmy since he can really use it and learn from it now. By the time he is 4 I think it will be a bit too "young" for him. The letters are a bit small (hence being for ages 4 and up) so Jimmy is under constant supervision when using this to make sure he does not put the letters in his mouth and/or choke!
I love how colorful the 2-sided boards are and how the letters are different colors, providing even more opportunity for learning. The Melissa & Doug See & Spell is a hit!
I thought it was a cute idea and liked the idea that hooking the fish would help with fine motor skills. The only thing I was a little disappointed with was that the fishing "line" is molded plastic so it doesn't really move much. It does swing back and forth a little from the pole so it takes a little more practice to hook a fish. And the reel makes clicking noises when you turn it, a cute effect. Overall the edushape Tub Fun Deep Sea Fishing Set is a cute product that Jimmy really enjoys and always asks for the "fishies" when its bath time or if we go out in his kiddie pool.
