Wooden Educational Toys by Kara Mia
My youngest is currently undergoing occupational and speech therapy (I will be saving the reason for this in another blog post). N needs more structured play (vs. free play) to learn early play skills such as sharing, taking turns, and interacting with other kids. Structured play will also give him clear guidelines about what to do, how to do, and when to start and stop.
I was able to observe a few of my son’s therapy sessions. His therapist/teacher uses a variety of learning and educational toys. We have flash cards, puzzles and the likes at home but not wooden toys. In short, naiinggit ako! Kidding aside, I just want to follow-up the activities at home.
I’m glad to have found Kara Mia, an online shop selling wooden educational toys and other kiddie goods. Prices are lower compared to mall prices. I messaged them in FB and ordered these affordable educational toys.
This Geometric Blocks toy teaches shape and color recognition. It also improves sorting and fine motor skills. There are no sharp edges and the colors are vivid.
The Geometric Intelligence Board helps my son identify shapes, colors, and simple mathematical logic knowledge. It also improves hand-eye coordination. N finds this activity the hardest to finish.
I bought my eldest the same kind of toy before, but some of the pieces are now missing. This Shape Puzzle Board has smooth edges and the details are flawless.
We’re now doing simple play activities at home using his new toys. The therapist told me to let N finish what he started so I’m really strict with him getting towards his goal.
I also added an Animal Finger Puppet set for Z, my eldest. I remember him being obsessed with Finger Family songs on YouTube a few months ago. The puppets are made from foam, and they’re perfect for pretend play.
I’m happy that I don’t need to break the bank to get quality educational toys for my kids. Do check out Kara Mia for educational toys, books, study tables, playtents, chalkboards, room decors, and more kiddie goodies. 🙂
