Alex Toys - Ready, Set, School!

I am always on the lookout for unique, fun, educational toys for my kids. During my quest to find just-the-right Christmas gifts that I am unashamed to admit starts in like September, I have discovered Alex Toys. They have a plethora of educational toys, games, craft kits, books, etc. for all ages at great prices! Their mission statement says it all:

"Alex's mission is to provide children with quality creative products that foster personal expression and build self-esteem. The best children's activities provide lots of fun and they open the child's mind to new skills, new ideas, and new worlds."

We have been able to try out the Ready, Set, School! set. This is one of those must-have items a mom needs in her arsenal. Seriously, this box contains hours upon hours of activities to keep your young ones entertained. Holidays at relatives' houses who don't have kids, anyone?? This box will have your child enthralled with the bright colors, fun illustrations, stickers, and more...and they just might learn something along the way! And when they get tired of one activity, they can just move onto the next to get their little brains charged up and imaginations soaring.

Here's what the Ready, Set, School! set includes:
  • Skill-building set for preschool children full of fun activities
  • 15 pages of learning fun with stickers, stencils, drawing and cutting
  • Wipe-away learning pads: Dot to Dot, ABC, Colors and Shapes, and 1-2-3
  • Wipe-away marker
  • Tie my shoe lacing
  • Scissors (the safe kind!) and stackable crayons
Our personal favorites have been the wipe away learning pads. 2 of them are small, so I keep one in my diaper bag with the wipe away pen when I need a good distraction, err, I mean have an educational moment with my 2-year old while out in public. My son loves to color on the pages with the pen (he's not quite old enough to write yet), and "read" to me what the pictures are. Then I can just wipe them down with a baby wipe, and they're ready for next time!
