A few weeks back I announced that I would be working with RM Education to try and make education fun. I have now had a chance to play with a couple of their products and can say they are great.
We received the ‘everyday objects basket’ which is a collection of everyday objects that young children love to play with. The set includes a mobile, a TV controller and hairbrush. We all know that children love to imitate and this encourages that. Erin is undergoing speech therapy and us modelling sentences and extending her sentences is what we are focusing on at the moment. Her clarity is not good with longer sentences and through play we are trying to address this. The RM at Home website also gives video tutorials on how to use the products.
The products are well made and Erin has enjoyed playing with them, especially with her dolls which she is just really getting into playing with. They are well made and excellent quality. One negative is the price which I feel is still aimed at the nursery / educational market. The set is £51.49 which is expensive.
The second product we tried was aimed at Dylan’s age. We recieved a recording magnifier this costs £21.49 but is unique as it allows the child to record a 30 second message about what they have seen. This is really good for challenging the children to verbalise what they have found. We have had some great bug hunts in the garden this summer with the magnifier and it has given endless opportunities to discover nature up close and personal. I think if you have a little one that enjoys exploring then this will make an ideal gift and is not too pricey for a unique product.
RM at Home really does have some great products that support the National Curriculum and extend what is taught in the classroom. The holiday fun ideas are excellent if you struggle with project ideas that you can do at home to make learning fun.
Disclosure: I recieved the products mentioned as gifts for the purpose of the review.
