There's no denying the wide variety of toys that are on the market today for young children. But as a parent, I do my best to make sure that every toy Riley plays with contains a degree of educational value too. Toddlers and preschoolers are soaking up the world around them like a sponge, which is why I love introducing toys to Riley that promote valuable skills to better prepare her for school. Such is the case with the Peek-a-Boo Color Muffins from Learning Resources. Keep reading to learn more!
The Peek-a-Boo Color Muffins toy from Learning Resources is designed to help teach colors, matching and fine motor skills to children ages 2 years old and up. It contains 5 durable, plastic 2-piece muffins and 5 fruit fillings that store in a cute, rotating stand. Children are encouraged to match the corresponding colored fruit to the matching colored muffin cup, though many more educational activities can also be accomplished using this toy.
Any young child would enjoy playing peek-a-boo with these muffins as well as storing them in the rotating stand and giving it a spin. Parents can easily introduce a conversation with their tots about healthy eating, food groups and the daily goal of "eating a rainbow", as well as counting and sorting. You could mix up just two of the fruits and have your child problem solve as to which ones don't belong.
I liked the Peek-a-Boo Color Muffins from Learning Resources and recommend it for any toddler. Both boys and girls will enjoy making their "fruity muffins". Only you as the parent will actually know the valuable color recognition, matching and fine motor skills that are being taught to them all the while they're giggling and playing with their food!

I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
