learning resources competition

Looking to spoil your grandchildren with top educational toys? We've teamed up with Learning Resources® to give away a bundle of Christmas toys worth £186.

Give your grandchild the gift of learning this Christmas

As a grandparent, you know how important play is for children to learn about themselves and the world around them. Through play children practise and test new skills, which helps them become more confident and independent as they grow.

Learning Resources® believe in the potential of each child. For 25 years they’ve created innovative, educational toys that spark children’s natural curiosity and ability to learn. From coding and programming robots to sensory and creative play, Christmas is the ideal time to invest in toys that will bring hours of learning fun throughout the year.

About Learning Resources® toys

Playfoam® is the award-winning squishing, squashing, sculpting fun kids love. This sensory sculpting toy is ideal for helping children to get creative. Parents and grandparents love it too because it only sticks to itself and never dries out. New Playfoam Pluffle™ is also perfect for sensory play and tactile learning. Simply squish a handful of Playfoam Pluffle and watch it flow apart.

Like learning any new language, the earlier children start learning coding, the better. Learning Resources is the go-to choice for screen-free coding toys. Coding Critters™ is ideal for children aged four and up, Botley™ the Coding Robot is ideal for five and up, and award-winning Artie 3000™ is great for kids from age seven. Artie is easy to use and perfect for encouraging left-brain skills such as geometry and maths, and right-brain skills such as creativity and imagination.

Stems® is a flexible 3D maker toy that stimulates STEM learning and sensory play through hands-on construction activities. Every Stem piece is the same size and shape, strong, lightweight and flexible. The zip-like fastening action means easy, bendy construction fun that can be enjoyed anywhere, any time.

A great way to introduce a child to science is with crazy, wacky Beaker Creatures® Alien Experiment Lab. This child-friendly lab set was developed to inspire a love of science through hands-on play and experimentation. On opening, young scientists will find all the tools they’ll need to create out-of-this-world experiments.

Experts say that pretend play is essential in helping young children develop their language, social and problem-solving skills. Toys like their tried-and-tested Learning Resources staple, the Pretend & Play® Calculator Cash Register make an ideal gift for children as young as three.

There’s a whole world of outdoor wonder waiting to be discovered with GeoSafari® Jr. Developed for young children to explore their worlds, GeoSafari® Jr. Kidnoculars® Extreme™ are child-friendly binoculars that work just like a grown-up’s. They’ve been designed for children’s vision, so they’re focus free and feature a breakaway strap for safety.

Indulge in some monkey business with Gears! Gears! Gears!® Movin' Monkeys™ Building Set. Build the cheeky monkeys a few gear trees, connect a vine swing and monkey around. For 25 years, Gears! Gears! Gears! has provided children with open-ended play opportunities, and construction fun.

Fine motor skills are a key developmental milestone achievement for all children. Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog™ is a terrific fine motor investment this Christmas. Toddlers insert and remove Spike’s quills which have been designed for little hands to grip with ease. Plus, the quills store in Spike’s body for quick and easy tidy-up after play.
