As my daughter grows up I am really trying to give her toys and items that help encourage her to learn. We love playing with toys that have numbers, colors, shapes and more. I came across Learning Resources and they have toys, games and items that encourage learning and make it fun.

When searching their site I have found so many items that look to be a lot of fun that I know my daughter would love.

This is an awesome fun toy to allow your child to explore and play without the mess. My daughter hates to get dirty so I thought this would be a great way to allow her to try new things without all the mess and fuss of having her use her hands. We decided to make home made slime (post to follow) and put it in the discovery lab. Then we placed plastic animals and shapes inside to have her search for them. As she found them she told us what each one was. It was a lot of fun and kept her busy for hours
The Discovery Lab comes with the lab box which is made of nice clear plastic which is very easy to clean once you are done with your adventure. You receive two latex–free gloves that lock into place on the outside to insure that the mess stays in. Plus you receive a lid for the lab which is also clear, it does have air holes for if you decide to put an animal or insect into the lab. You also receive to hole covers so when the gloves are not installed you can cover the glove holes and keep the contents inside.
This is an awesome lab that would be perfect for any child wanting to explore. The Hands on Discovery Lab is designed and geared for Pre-K kids 4 and up but can be enjoyed by kids (and parents) of all ages. Our family had a great afternoon with this awesome product. We are excited about all the new adventures that we can have thanks to this lab.
