Learning Resources: All About Me Family Counters Review

Pin It
Educational toys



I am always on the lookout for the best games and toys for my 4 year old. I don't want your standard run of the mill toy that offers little in terms of educational value or offers little chance of creativity and fun. We already have plenty of toys like that at home so I don't need any more!

Learning Resources offers such a wide variety of toys and games that I literally get lost browsing their website. They even have a tab so that you can browse toys based on specific special needs.

Learning Resources is headquartered in Vernon Hills, IL, with a European office based in Kings Lynn, Norfolk, England.
I own several different Learning Resources toys. I even have another review for the Pop for Counting game that you can find HERE.

Right now Big Sis is really into counting and she often finds herself wanting to add and subtract things and she does not even really know she is doing it. She will say "look at my 4 snacks and after eating one I now only have three left." I chose to review the All About Me Family Counters as I feel like the possibilities are endless!

Meet a real multi-tasking family of manipulatives! Help young children learn all about themselves and their families. Also great for counting, sorting and patterning.
  • Set of 72 counters come in 6 different shapes and colors to represent the people and pets in families
  • Tallest figure measures 2.5"H
  • Grades PreK+


There are a ton of these things in the bucket. Even Lil Sis enjoyed just dumping them out and playing with them. Although her just scattering them for me to pick up was not very educational for her. Big Sis on the other hand just loved them.


The Learning Resources website has free pdfs that you can print off to help you with patterns. Such as tall woman, cat, tall woman, cat, __________. Set them out and then see if your preschooler can guess what comes next. I just love that this makes a great visual for patterns.

CONTEST ALERT

Better yet is this toy currently has a contest going on where you can win gift certificates to Learning Resources. I always enjoy looking at entries for contests like these.
