Learning Resources® is a brand focused on educational toys and classroom resources and has been growing since 1984.
Their goal is to develop products that nurture a lifelong love of learning, with a special focus on STEM related products.
One of our favourite LR products are their animal, insect, and dinosaur figurines.
They're made approximately to scale so you can see the difference in size between the different animals in the set. For instance, in the farm set, the horse and cow are much bigger than the duck and rooster.
They're also wonderful quality and each set comes with a companion set of nomenclature cards we've created for matching activities.
Beginner Science Tools
With the company's focus on STEM, they've developed a variety of wonderful beginner science tools for toddlers, including tweezers, sensory tubes, eye droppers and more.
These tools are the perfect size for young children, who are still refining their fine motor skills.
The Sensory Tubes are also a great way to explore the classic Montessori activity of smelling jars because 2 of the 4 tubes have lids with holes. Simply add fragrant items, like cinnamon sticks, lemon, garlic, herbs, etc. This is a wonderful sensorial activity to do with children from 10 months - 3 years.
