Preschoolers Everywhere Will Enjoy Little Tikes Games

Now that Scarlett is in her 3's program at school, they've been doing a lot of memory building activities lately  Whether it's matching smiling pumpkins for Halloween or finding the green ice cream cone in a sea of candy and cookies, everything helps build my tiny girl's brain.  It's important to have your little one exposed to educational toys and resources to ensure they are learning and boosting their brain power.

Little Tikes offers infant, young children's toys and furniture for indoor and outdoor use.  If fun is on your older child's agenda, let their playhouses, sandboxes, water tables, and kitchens delight your tot's imagination.  If you have a baby, they will love the jump jump's, walkers, and educational learning toys among many others.  Whatever age your child is, they will surely enjoy Little Tikes products that create and spark play and curiosity.

I was unaware that Little Tikes made learning games until very recently. The age range for the games are 3-5 and they are ideal for improving concentration, memory, and matching skills.  Your little ones will love such games as Crazy Blender, Hot Hoops, Crazy Toaster, and Farm Memory Match-Up.  It's always a wonderful idea to turn off the electronics and have your child really do something beneficial for development.

Scarlett is almost 3, so she's a little too young for all of the games except Farm Memory Match-Up.  This an ideal choice for her since she is such an avid animal lover and it ties into what she's been doing at school.  The age range for this game is 3+.  Two to four players can play the game which is ideal for your child and a friend or two.  Test your memory and matching skills by putting the animals back together.  Separate the farm animals and put each half under a haystack and shuffle them around.  Whoever matches the most animals wins! The game comes with 10 farm animals which feature a duck, cow, chicken, sheep, and more.

This is the first real boxed game that she's ever played and she's really interested.  I think the animals draw her in.  Right now, my husband Jay and I play it with her, but I'm sure when her friends come over they will enjoy it too as she gets older.  The animals are brightly colored and help to get children interested.

Scarlett's attention span for this game is impressively long considering she's not yet 3.  She really wants to find the match and seems to understand the concept which is great. Of course she does eventually want to just play with the animals and loses concentration, but hey she's still very young and it's to be expected!

As a parent, there's nothing more important to me than my child having fun through learning.  I think the best way to teach a child is to disguise it through play.  She's not realizing how much she's really learning, but I am! I think as she gets older this will be a continued favorite.

I'm looking forward to having her play more games in the future and seeing how her mind works with them.  It'll surely be interesting to see as she grows up!

If you're looking for an educational game that your young children can play, get the toy-box ready for Little Tikes Farm Memory Match-Up.
