Try the Toy: Ready2Learn Giant Farm Animal Stamp Set

Today‘s “Try the Toy” guest post is written by Bridgette, a product review blogger, Science geek and owner of Experimental Mommy. We love her writing style – and those test tube graphics! – and are honored to have Bridgette writing on our blog.

hypothesis The Ready2Learn Giant Farm Animal Stamp Set and Giant Washable Stamp Pads from Growing Tree Toys will be the PERFECT art project for a curious toddler who wants to play like her big sister!

materialsOne Ready2Learn Giant Farm Animal Stamp Set, Jumbo Washable Stamp Pads in primary colors, an over-excited two year old and a blank canvas. About the art supplies:

“Finally – stamps you can get right every time! The Ready2Learn Giant Farm Animal Stamps from Center Enterprises is the set of 10 oversized stamps that kids will love to use to make posters, wrapping paper, signs, and more! These Farm Animal Stamps includes a duck, sheep, pig, goat, horse, goose, cow, turkey, hen and chicks – that’s quite a barnyard! Each foam stamp in the Ready2Learn Giant Farm Animal Stamps is 3″ in diameter, mounted on a clear, see-through top for easy-to-see placement, and features a directional arrow for perfect alignment. And, the stamps and comfort-grip handles in the Ready2Learn Giant Farm Animal Stamps are color-coded for easy sorting and storage in the reusable, clear plastic storage case.”

results My five year old daughter loves to play with art supplies such as markers, scissors and most of all…stamps! I love encouraging her creative side, but with the ever increasing curiosity of her two year old little sister, art time can be a disaster. However, when I was introduced to the Ready2Learn Giant Farm Animal Stamp Set, I had a feeling it would be a hit.

growingtree1The large rounded handles made the stamps very easy for the toddler to grip and take control while the clear mount of this foam stamp made it very easy for her to see where to place her stamp. There is an arrow alignment tool which helps placement of your stamp, but this concept was lost on my two year old…no one can contain her creativity! But, the five year old learned to use it quickly and was able to create very pretty farm scenes! The best part of this toy? The washable jumbo stamp pads!! If you are like me, I always head straight for anything that says washable when choosing toys for my kids. Because the ink washes right off, I could let my girls have free reign of their art and let them play and create with minimal supervision. Clean up was also very easy (except that the little ones did not want to stop stamping!). The stamps wash clean with a little soap and water and can be stored in the plastic case in which they came.

hypothesis The Ready2Learn Giant Farm Animal Stamp Set is definitely Mom and Kid approved! The ease of use was perfect for my toddler, but the creative aspect was also perfect for my five year old who did not think the toy was too “baby.” At just $13.95, this set would make a great gift for a school friend! We will definitely be checking out the other stamp sets to increase the fun!

    That’s very affordable! My son loves stamps, too, and I like that they keep him happily occupied for a bit.

    I have the same problem with my two year old. art time, cooking it all becomes a disaster, but I can’t discourage him, it’s such a challenge to find products that work for younger. I’m so glad you wrote this review on Giant Farm Animal Stamp, I’m going to have to check it out.
