With summer on the horizon, you may be considering taking your family on a road trip to the beach. Whether your child is playing in the pool, splashing in the lake, or taking in the ocean waves, we have five toys you can’t miss to ensure they keep learning while having fun in the sun!
Color Play Penguins are great for teaching children color recognition as they match each penguin with the appropriate inner tube based on colored bowties! Best of all, the toys float and are small enough to easily pack in a beach bag.
Math learning becomes much more enjoyable when paired with water play! Number Ducks are the perfect way to teach toddlers number recognition. The dots on the ducks’ backs make counting, sorting, and simple equations fun and easy!
Make small words, work on letter recognition, and even go fishing with Letter Link Crabs! Children can squeeze and release crabs to fill with water, making them a great water toy for fine motor skill development and early literacy.
These brightly colored tug boats are great for small hands. Toddlers can fill up the boats and pour water from the hole on front or let it seep out the drain hole on deck. The boats also offer an easy-to-grip handle to make bringing water back for sandcastle building easy!
Children can learn science on the go with the Underwater Explorer Boat! Featuring a magnified floor, the boat enables kids to see beneath any water surface as they explore different ecosystems. What will your child discover?
Finally, as small children learn to swim, a great way to begin teaching them is through the use of swim vests. Browse our brightly-colored selection here: http://buff.ly/1GBn6U0.
