A Child’s Geography: Explore His Earth

May 30th, 2009 (No Comments)

I bought “A Child’s Geography” last year for my daughter.  I really love it because of the wonderful pictures and the easy-to-understand text.  It’s a really good introduction to the world of geography, without getting too bogged down in maps and boring statistics.  And of course, everything is linked back to God and creation.  LOVE […]

Carson zPix Digital Microscope

May 29th, 2009 (No Comments)

I can’t believe what this does for the price.  Now, the whole family can see on the computer screen what is on each slide.  Pictures and video can be taken and edited.  We had a little trouble with the software at first, but the Carson website and tech support was very helpful.  Well worth the […]

Wordigo

May 28th, 2009 (No Comments)

Wordigo was a gift for Dad because he loves to play Scrabble. However, it was a bit difficult for different age levels to enjoy the game. With Wordigo, we all play at the same time (a round last 7 minutes) and at differing levels too. Every family member is enjoying Wordigo! Kim Athens, TN

Electronic 500 in 1 Lab

May 27th, 2009 (No Comments)

We were really excited to get this, until we tried to use it. The holes in the motherboard (I think that’s what it is called) were too close together and it made it very difficult to use. Marion Dimondale, MI

May 22nd, 2009 (No Comments)

Transitioning to training wheels was a traumatic experience for myself as a youngster,enough so I never care to learn how to ride a bicycle. So I was very curious about this new product when our sons asked for a bicycle.  One of our boys has a difficult time with his co-ordination, did not really want […]

Thinking Putty: Hypercolors & Colorswirled

May 21st, 2009 (No Comments)

I purchased a few kinds of this putty as Christmas gifts, and they turned out to be the most popular thing under the tree! My children love to manipulate it while in waiting situations (in the car, before hockey games, and even while I read aloud); they’re particularly fascinated with the color-changing properties of the […]

Cat and Mouse logic puzzle

May 20th, 2009 (No Comments)

This game works best with one kid in small bits of time, like in a waiting room or on a car trip. My grandkids didn’t find it varied enough to stick with for extended play, by they liked doing 3 or 4 challenges before going on to something different. The storage box is convenient. Susan […]

Thank you for carrying this awesome product.  It was an answer to prayer.  My daughter is a Junior in High School commented that she thought it took her too long to complete her reading in various subjects.  We prayed for God to redeem this area.  We confirmed her suspsion when she took the reading speed […]

We bought these books for Christmas for our oldest son several years ago. He loved them and has passed them down to his younger two brothers who both devoured the series and also gave them a thumb’s up! These books have carved out a permanent place on our bookshelf and are just waiting for the […]
