GeoToys Review and GeoPuzzle Giveaway!



With Earth Day just 12 days away I was wondering, how many of you can point to Poland on a map?  What about Libya or Guatemala?  Surprisingly a lot of adults young and old alike can't point these locations and others out on a map!  In fact according to a survey done by National Geographic in 2006, "Most young adults between the ages of 18-24 demonstrate a limited understanding of the world and place limited importance on basic geographic skills that might enhance their knowledge," According to the National Geographic website.  Growing up my mother always participated in school events and now she's a Kindergarten teacher so she's always stressed the importance of a good education from early on.  I can honestly say I was not one of the 18-24 year olds that couldn't point out where Iraq was on a map, and now thanks to GeoToys Ashton will be able to point them out too!
U.S.A GeoBingo $18.99

What are GeoToys?
According to their website, "At GeoToys, our goal is simple: to make geography fun!  We believe children possess a natural curiosity about the world and about other people.  If we do our job right and make geography fun, then the curiosity will take over.  We also believe that the more children learn about the Earth, the more than will do to protect it when they grow up, and we think that's important.  That's why, in addition to making geography fun, we donate a portion of our profits to geography education.  You could say in our own little way we're trying to promote world peace or as we like to call it world "piece" Okay bad pun but I couldn't resist!"
GeoToys carries an array of different fun activities to stimulate your children's minds and get them excited about learning!  You can choose from great puzzles, including an entire world puzzle, a U.S. and Canada puzzle and others, fun Bingo and card games, and entertaining board games.  GeoToys make great gifts but are also great for tutors, teachers, baby sitters, or even as a rainy day or any day activity!  You can visit the GeoToys website for very interesting and educational Parent/Teacher Resource Guides that include facts, quizzes and other fun activities you can do with your children and best of all their absolutely free!


Animals GeoPuzzle $14.99

My Review
Bob from GeoToys is such a sweet person!  He sent me over the World GeoPuzzle (a $14.99 value) which is a 68 piece puzzle.  It took about 3 days to get here and Ashton insisted on immediately putting it together when it came.  Since Daddy likes putting puzzles together I decided we would wait for him.  It took us just a little over 10 minutes to complete the first time.  The puzzle was fairly easy to complete but I was surprised at how little I realized I knew!  I really thought I knew where all of the countries were located and that just wasn't the case!  But working together we got the job done in no time!  We had a blast spending the time putting the puzzle together.  It's a great family activity and it really makes you think!  

World GeoPuzzle $14.99

GeoPuzzles help to build fine motor skills and build cognitive, language, and problem-solving skills and are a great introduction to world geography for children 4 and up 
Designed by an art professor, GeoPuzzles are jumbo sized and colorful are are available for all 5 major continents. I highly recommend GeoPuzzles and all of the GeoToys to all children because children now-a-days need a leg up like this. It's a fun yet educational way to give your child the skills they need to stay ahead.

Postcards from America Board Game $29.99
