Being a parent requires a lot of energy, creativity and entertainment skills. As Annabelle grows her hunger for learning increases. It started with counting, moved to colours, letters, writing and now spelling. With two children it can also be difficult to constantly provide stimulation and new learning activities so we find it useful to have versatile toys.
Annabelle is 3.5 years old. She is finding out what she enjoys and that sometimes things take practice. Since starting preschool we have found ways to be more structured when encouraging her to learn. Her teachers have given her direction, she is set homework and we use any opportunity we can to learn. We are always counting. We are always finding letters and listing words that start with that letter. We practice sounds and phonics and we try to keep it fun.
When we were offered GEOMAG Magicube to review we were pleased to see what Annabelle would make of it. Plus the fact that it didn’t have smaller pieces means we could get it out when Matilda is around. The Magicubes are multipurpose. You can build with them, create shapes, match colours, spell words, match letters and create your own games.
The starter set includes 16 magnetic cubes and 63 magnetic squares with letters and pictures. The pictures are all things that have simple spellings like bed, bus, sun, jam, hen which is great for Annabelle. You can also make up your own words or in our case we get Annabelle to copy words.
