Faber Castell My First Scissors

November 18th, 2010 (No Comments)

If your child already knows how to use scissors, these (My First Scissors) won’t be necessary. But I kind of took that as common knowledge. I had bought (not from Timberdoodle) a different brand of supposedly easy scissors for my 2 year old (he’s 3 now). They are still not easy for him to use […]


Rosetta Stone Spanish

November 17th, 2010 (No Comments)

Rosetta Stone is great to learn a new language! We are missionaries and this has been a great way to learn a new language. My husband and I and our children have all used it. It’s almost like playing a game to our children. You start out easy and then it kind of builds on […]


Holiday Smencils set of 5

November 16th, 2010 (No Comments)

I purchased holiday smencils two years ago (locally, not from Timberdoodle, because they didn’t carry them at that time). My kids enjoy using them (BTW, that 2 year guarantee~ they STILL smell great). They smell good while writing, and the paper is scented for a bit after writing. they sharpen nicely, write smoothly, and hey! […]


Terrapin Logo

November 15th, 2010 (No Comments)

Math Motivator! My 11 year-old son thinks this program (Terrapin Logo) is too much fun to be considered schoolwork!  He loves programming the turtle to draw and will ask me how to calculate lengths of sides for his houses, sidewalks, etc.  This gives me a great opportunity to remind him of the Pythagorean theorem or […]


Hugg-A-Planet’s World Globe

November 12th, 2010 (No Comments)

Hugg-a-Planet has been a great first globe for our children. The colors are bright and give good contrast between countries and oceans.  The fabric and construction are durable and withstand the hugging, sitting, and general rough use of our Pre-K children.  The stuffing has shifted a little due to all the learning love over the […]


Kid-O Bilibo

November 11th, 2010 (No Comments)

I bought one of these for my daughter’s second birthday a few months ago. All four of my children (ages 2, 4, 6, and 8) went totally wild over it. I wish I had bought four of them! It has been used in so many interesting ways and each child approaches it differently. You never […]


Gobblet Gobblers

November 10th, 2010 (No Comments)

Gobblet Gobblers takes tic-tac-toe to the next level. Kids will have to make decisions on what size of piece to use and if to gobble or block. While young children will need help in making these decisions, they will soon catch on to how the game works. This game is fun because it doesn’t end […]


Ollo Explorer Robot Kit

November 9th, 2010 (No Comments)

After seeing some great YouTube videos and visiting the Robotis website, I decided to order the Ollo Explorer kit. I’m really glad that I did – this really is a great robot building set!  There is a wide variety of colorful and well made plastic parts that connect together easily with little rivets. The robots […]
