Holiday Gift Guide: Learning Resources Farmer’s Market Color Sorting Set- Giveaway

Friday, November 30th, 2012

We go to the Farmer’s Market every Friday. It is actually one of our favorite things to do. The kids get to run around before Kaia goes to school. They get to try new fruits and veggies and they always get a treat (usually a honey stick or yummy piece of fruit). Well one of my favorite companies has brought the Farmer’s Market to my living room. Indeed my kiddos get to reenact one of our favorite “errands”. The Farmer’s Market Color Sorting Game may be one of my favorite educational games. It is just way to cute and it applies to so many learning activities. While of course there is the obvious color sorting there is also sorting by fruit vs vegetable. You can use them for pattern games, math games, and of course just talking about the different kinds of fruits and vegetables their names and more which can also lead into spelling and writing. And just playing with them for Imaginary play purposes is always nice. This set is beautiful, fun, educational, and just plain awesome!

Sort and sell bushels of realistic produce! Perfect for dramatic play and nutrition lessons too

Includes Activity Guide, 25 foods and stickers for labeling 5 baskets (red, yellow, orange, green and purple)

Baskets measure 4″H x 5.5″ in diameter

Friday, November 23rd, 2012



Do you know a Lalaloopsy fan? I have a big fan of these adorable dolls in my house. Kaia just can’t get enough of these adorable dolls. to The new Harmony B Sharp doll is fantastic. Kaia has so much fun with her and for good reason not only is she interactive. She has interchangeable hairstyles and she sings songs and dances. Kaia’s favorite things all rolled into one super cute doll! Kaia loves Harmony’s sparkly blue and pink dress, cute molded socks and shoes, and pink molded hair. The adorable rattling pet cat helps kids keep the beat while Harmony entertains. Kaia shakes that Kitty like a maraca! The Interchangeable Hair Pieces Trigger Different Songs which is just fantastic best of all you can keep the hair pieces organized and in one place with the included plastic pouch. I am so glad they had the forethought to include the pouch no more lost pieces for us! Now if all that wasn’t enough to get a Lalaloopsy fan or really any kiddo excited there is more! Harmony dances when attached to the stand on the dance stage. She moves her legs and arms and twists at the waist. Her hair pieces also whirl and twirl. This doll is really fantastic!

About Harmony B Sharp
Harmony B Sharp features an adorable round face, button eyes, and a big personality. Created from the cloth of a singer’s dress, she loves to be in the spotlight. Like all Lalaloopsy dolls, she was once a rag doll who came to life just as her last stitches were sewn.
An aspiring singer, Harmony dresses the part with her sparkly blue and pink dress, cute molded socks and shoes, and pink molded hair. She comes with a rattling pet cat to help kids keep the beat while Harmony entertains.
Interchangeable Hair Pieces Trigger Different Songs
Press the button in the center of Harmony’s chest and she’ll interact with you. She has six ponytail hair pieces: two silly hair pieces with pink bows, a yellow stars hair piece, a green bow hair piece, a top hat hair piece, and a red bow hair piece. Keep the hair pieces organized and in one place with the included plastic pouch.
Each hairstyle triggers a different song when plugged into the hair-piece slot on the right side of Harmony’s head. Family members who are sensitive to sounds should know that the Harmony B Sharp doll does not include a volume button. However, she has an on/off switch and her songs and interactions are short.
Included Stage Allows Harmony to Dance and Move
