Cool Educational Toys Part 3

Ever since I read the blogpost on Simple Homeschool about Learning Math Through Play, I have been wanting to get Gavin a toy cash register and a toy weighing scale to help teach him the concept of money and weight. A trip down south to Singapore brought the discovery of a lovely little shop in Paragon called “Growing Fun”.

Located on Level 5 (#05-18) next to the shop selling princess dresses, Growing Fun has a delightful range of educational toys that you can also check out on their website, at their other outlets around Singapore, in Brunei, Jakarta, Vancouver and Malaysia:

We bought Gavin a weighing scale:

And a Busy Book on Water which lets your 3-5 year old learn about the science of water through a series of easy experiments he can do on his own.

They have many, many other cool products that I was extremely tempted to get for Gavin but did not only after applying extreme self-control measures. They have Math manipulatives, science experiments, construction toys, puzzles, charts, etc. One of the main brands they carry is Gigo – which is a Taiwanese company that makes educational toys. You can also check out the Gigo website for more information on these products.

Gareth amused himself with their letter board display at the door and was rather upset about having to leave when it was time to go.
