As I have said before, I am a huge believer in educational toys.
My boys love them, and actually ask for them!!
Learning Resources constantly comes out with new and exciting toys for the kids.
One of the toys that I fell in love with was the Pretend and Play Camp Set.
We go camping at least once every year, and the boys love to cook marshmallows, sit in the tent and enjoy the lanterns!!
This set gives them all the stuff they love the most about camping. It includes-
Cooking tools, Lantern, Stove, Working Compass Watch and Canteen.
The boys loved the fact that the Lantern works. They have a Cars2 tent in their playroom (or what was once our dinning room) and they have camp outs all the time. The light is actually quite bright for only using 2 AA batteries
If you are looking for some fun toy options for your kids, this is a great toy set to try out.
I am very excited that the good folks at Learning Resources are giving one of you the same Camping set that I got. I know your kids will love it too.
