Some time ago, I purchased some felt cloth from Daiso, thinking I would make some felt veggies (he’s into ‘cooking’) and perhaps even animals for Kenan to play with. But with work piled high and a lack of sleep, I just didn’t have the energy to do so.
Then I recalled the boy received a set of felt sea animals during his birthday that I had stored away, planning to bring it out when he’s got tired of his current toys.
So out come his new toy and some lessons in learning about sea creatures and more.
Kenan and I love the cute sea creatures! The animals and word labels come with velcro at the back so they can stick and be easily removed from the big book.
We had different activities with the felt toys:
1. Learning to identify the animals
2. Matching animals to the words (I would read to him each word and get him look for the animal and stick it next to the word)
3. Spelling game – played this game in conjunction with a set of magnetic alphabet. I would pick a word and get him to pick the letters and spell. Well, we didn’t quite succeed – he just threw the letters together! *laugh*
4. Imaginative play – gave the little boy time to do some free play with felt sea creatures
Kenan and I really love the cute-looking sea creatures. I also like it that it’s made of felt, so it’s soft and not easily breakable and make it safe in that sense. I think you can also wash it too when the set gets dirty.
Best of all, we can easily bring it out with us. I would prefer to entertain him with educational toys like these than passing him the iPhone when we’re out!
Then I had a chance to speak to our friends who gave Kenan the toys and found out they are actually selling them and there are other sets beside the sea creatures. I asked them for some photos:
Learning about colours and shapes
Learning about animals and numbers
I’m not doing any advertising for my friend and this is not a sponsored post. I thought these toys are worth sharing about.
I think they are great for younger children between ages 1-2, as they serve as good introduction to the different concepts of shapes, colours, numbers and more. If you’re interested, you can contact Wendy on mobile no: 91098929.
