This year, since my youngest kids are finally past the infant stage, I am really focusing on giving them quality gifts that encourage learning and creativity. They are both getting educational games and tablets, and we're also giving art and dramatic play related presents. There is something magical about a child's imagination, and I am a huge fan of creative play.
One company that offers about a zillion educational and imaginative products is Lakeshore Learning. This company has been around since 1954, and provides wonderful, engaging products to schools, daycares, and homes nationwide.
While there is online ordering available, Lakeshore Learning also offers brick and mortar locations from coast to coast that offer free children's crafts, teacher's workshops, and more!
Here is a bit more info about Lakeshore Learning and their commitment to our children.
About Lakeshore Learning :
Lakeshore is dedicated to creating innovative educational materials that spark young imaginations, instill a sense of wonder and foster a lifelong love of learning. With materials for infants & toddlers through the 6th grade, we help children reach developmental milestones and achieve educational goals—while still having fun! We know that each child is unique, and we strive to develop materials that appeal to children of all interests, backgrounds and abilities. And, of course, all of the products we carry must meet stringent quality & safety standards—so they’re strong enough for daily use in the classroom and safe enough for use by babies and children.
In addition to providing educational materials for children around the globe, Lakeshore nurtures their own children right here at home! Their on-site preschool, Kids & Company, is a fully certified Nature Explore® Classroom that provides a safe and stimulating educational environment for our employees’ infants, toddlers and preschoolers. As you can see, it’s a big hit with kids and parents alike.
Our Review of the Adventure Tree House :
The generous folks at Lakeshore Learning sent us their gorgeous Adventure Tree House to check out for ourselves. This arrived very quickly, and was incredibly well packaged.
The Adventure Tree House is made from high quality hard wood, and offers 3 stories of fun for little ones. There are even rope ladders and 20 pieces of furniture included!
I love the fact that there are "windows" in the tree house, too. This is a special, added touch that makes the play experience more authentic for little ones. After all, have you ever been in a house with no windows? I only point this out because I have seen children's play sets that lacked windows before. That has never made any sense to me!
Take a look at how adorable the furniture in the Adventure Tree House is! I love the little chairs, leaf shaped painted coffee table and rug, and the bookshelf that hold actual play books!
There is also a cozy fireplace, a dining table that resembles a tree trunk, and a mushroom lamp. Everything is nature themed, making this ultimate tree house experience extra magical.
Of course no house is complete without a place to drift off to dreams. The Adventure Tree House has a comfy bed complete with bed linens, a mattress and pillows! Check out the mirrored vanity, too! How cute!
What good is a tree house if it has no occupants? Well, the folks at Lakeshore Learning have you covered there, too. We received 2 families to occupy this space. There are sets that include a mother, father, and baby. As you can see, there are muticultural options available!
Here are our little people, making themselves quite at home in the Adventure Tree House. As you can see, living quarters are not too cramped and there is plenty of room for the families to kick back and relax.
Sophie and Xander absolutely adore this play set. They will literally sit and play for hours on end, making up little stories as they go along.
Sophie, my soon to be 4 year old, loves being able to pretend she's a Mommy. She takes care of the babies in the house, and loves putting them in the little cradle. Xander is very happy about the addition of male dolls. He plays Daddy, and the kids are raising their families in the Adventure Tree House.
Overall, I am absolutely loving the Adventure Tree House from Lakeshore Learning. It is incredibly well made, visually stunning, and my kids are completely enchanted by it. They love the fact that all of the furniture and decor matches the nature/forest theme of the house. I would definitely recommend this product to any families looking for that one special, truly memorable gift. This is a product that will absolutely delight any child out there!
