Castle Marbleworks is available at Discovery Toys. Our girls received this toy for Christmas. It was all set up and ready to go when they woke on Christmas morning. Those clever elves were kind enough to make sure Mommy and Daddy did not have to put it together. However, I have it on good authority that it takes under two minutes to put together, and that is no joke. The tower is large and so are the balls that come with it which is a treat if you are like me and are always missing small parts of different toys. This is a quality well-made product and the girls loved it. Our cat Monty loved it too! I would recommend this toy for children under three. It is great for teaching cause and effect and making predictions about which way the balls will go. If you are interested in ordering this product please click here.
Flip Flop Faces by Discovery Toys $30.00 (I receive no $$ for this review. I am just trying to compile a list of great toys and services.
Flip Flop Faces by Discovery Toys promises to be lots of fun while working on gross-motor skills and facial expression recognition. Score points by landing a bean bag in one of the bowls or by flipping it to reveal one of the faces. I set up the game in our living room and let the girls go to town. Kate is working on the emotions happy and sad at the moment and she was immediately drawn to these two faces. Our goal was to get the beanbags in the bowls and flip them over. We would move closer and closer until we were successful. Once we flipped a bowl over the girls had to name the emotion they saw and show me that emotion with their own face. Grace, of course, had no trouble with this but Kate struggled a little. It was a good opportunity for Kate to work on immitation with me. The girls had a great time playing the game and I would definitly recommend it for any home and most certainly a daycare or a classroom. I hope to sneak mine into school when the girls are not looking. If you are interested in ordering this product click here. For the record, I do these reviews to compile a list of excellent and effective toys and services to help parents, therapist and educators. I am not charging money or selling something. This picture is a little bit fuzzy but the girls were having so much fun I could not get them to stay still for a second.
