A design revolution of Scooter Bike by Scoot & Ride

While having a young family, you would make sure every dollar you spend provides value for money. However, with kids growing up so fast, it is not always the way works out. The Austrian Designed Scoot & Ride changes all that with its revolutionary balance bikes/scooters range that are suitable for ages 12 months plus right through until they reach 50 Kilograms.

The Scoot and Ride range, the Highway Baby, Highway Baby+ and Highway Kick 1 incorporate the same revolutionary design that are exciting and fun for kids to ride as they grow from toddlers into young children.

The concept of the Scoot and Ride is revolutionary yet simple, they could best be described as the transformers of the Balance Bike / Scooter world. In a few seconds the Balance Bike can be transformed to a scooter and when the little legs get tired, back again to a balance bike, no tools, no mess and no fuss just a great design concept at work. Not only that but the Scoot & Ride comes fully assembled ready to ride. The Scoot & Ride range easily fit in the back of almost any car and are lightweight and easy to lift for parents.

The Scoot & Ride range is available in three designs. The first, the Highway Kick 1 is available in bright Pink, Red, Lime or Blue colours and features a reverse tricycle type set up with 2 larger front wheels and a smaller scooter sized wheel at the back. The Highway Kick 1 also features a stopper at the front just in case your child goes into long grass or soft ground and the bike/scooter tries to flip forward, it will be stopped by the stopper. A great safety addition for your young adventurer.

The Highway Baby as well as Highway Baby plus design, The Highway Baby features a larger single front wheel and a smaller back wheel is available in a two tone Blue/orange or a Pink/yellow colour scheme. This model does not feature the stopper on the front, but the larger front wheel negates the need for this in all but the most extreme cases.

Inspire your preschooler’s imagination: Fun with Shapes

This is one of the most amazing color wheel’s you’ll ever get to play with! Not only is it colorful, you can create animals, letters shapes and more with the beautifully shaped curves of the pieces.

The traditional color wheel was geometrically redesigned to resemble an iris with the edges of each of the twelve wedges arched to allow the user to create a variety of designs. Kids can make a number of designs by just moving the shapes.

One Shape, Infinite Possibilities

The Chrysanthos color wheel consists of twelve Trigeod shapes and is designed to evoke imagination and creativity. It’s the shapes that allow the children to stack and connect each piece to create their own vision.

Not only is this a creative toy, it is a great teacher resource for challenging children to think out of the box. Children can play with it on their own or with other toys like cars or animal figures. It truly is multi-functional.

The importance of the Trigeod in play

Creativity is being able to use different elements and express them in a uniquely comprehensible way based on your own personal experiences. The Trigeod promotes this expression in a natural unhindered fashion through open ended play.

This is a process that many children don’t have the chance to experience but it’s valuable to problem-solving, design and creativity. Children will naturally explore the shapes of the pieces and the many ways that you can connect and build with them.

Because of the Trigeod shapes, children are not only playing but dealing with unique problem solving task and decision making. The limits of the Chrysanthos color wheel are only dependent on what the user can imagine.

This is a great toy for children as young as age 3. Who’s ready to have fun with color and shapes?

LET’S CREATE: OUR REVIEW OF BUDDY BANK

the paint box paper bank buddy monster

If your little one loves creative activities look no further than Money Bank. This kit arrived in the mail and it was so much fun! We loved the packaging! This product is really a lot of fun! The Paint Box from Laion is one of our favorite products they have!

Here are a few of the features:

•Products are conformed to International Safety Standards

•Innovation – They care about early childhood development, they are dedicated in the development  of a line of arts and crafts products that are suitable for needs for young kids from 2 years old and up

•All the products are colorful and suitable for many ages

•For the monster bank buddy it is a kit includes all you need to make a cute paper money bank. Parents and kids can have fun making something during the holidays!

Buddy Bank

Everything is included in the kit to make a really cute bank. Kids get to use pattern cards, paint and design the look of the bank themselves.Following the directions, you’ll tape the two pieces together and then begin wrapping the paper body together using moist paper tape. It’s really easy and kids can help out too!

 

Buddy Bank

The directions are easy to read and also have a visual guide so kids can explain the process for each step you do together. This is great for young learners because it inspires them to use new words, explain what they see and also how to follow “steps”. If you allow them, preschoolers and Kindergarten age children could possibly complete the craft with little assistance.

Buddy Bank

Once it has fully dried, kids can begin painting. It’s so great for self expression and fine motor skills. Each task builds on the next. Let kids pick the colors, mix the colors and design the “look” of their bank. Remember it’s their vision so if they mix five colors together…no worries!

 

Buddy Bank

Once their bank is dry, kids can either cut out the eyes and facial features and apply them or paint/draw on a face themselves. Kids might also be inspired to use leftover collage items to design their bank. Just remember that when all the painting is done, you will need to seal it with the included clear gel. Again, the design of the bank is their choice. Let them guide the creation of the bank, there’s no right or wrong!

Buddy Bank

It’s a cute money bank that kids can use and decorate their room with. It also encourages beginning money management and of course it’s a creative project!

It says it is for 6+. Young kids can still participate most of the steps. Great experience for them to create something from scratch that develops patience, skill and creativity!

This was such a fun project and it would make a great gift!

We love this magnetic game set!

-It was exciting to open the treasure box each time and discover what is inside. Good to encourage exploration and observation.

-We also used the set as a sorting game grouping the various pieces together. Great for observation and logical thinking.

-We had fun picking a game card and tried to get the right magnets to put on the board. We observed and described each facial feature, color and style of the hair, different colors of eyes, various shapes of nose and mouth etc. Good for visual processing, comparing and matching skills as well as problem solving skills.

-It was an engaging game and we had a great time doing it together as mother and daughter.

-This is great for developing hand eye coordination and fine motor skills too. It also helped with building concentration and stamina because there were a number of small tasks to complete and they had to be done one by one.

-There is white board at another side, kids can try to draw the cute faces based on the cards. Also, an opportunity for creative play and kids can draw with a dry erase marker or create fun visuals with the magnets. We could make silly faces, line up the eyes and even count the pieces.

If your child prefers vehicles, we also have a set themed with vehicles that is a lot of fun!

magnetic fun vehicles

One of the bonuses with the vehicle set is that the magnetic pieces store neatly in different compartments of the box which adds to the fun!

Additionally we have a set featuring different places in the world and allows children to begin exploring the world’s different cultures with another fun magnetic game! We love this one because each set features different parts of the world and just like the other sets, the pieces are all magnetic and easy to store away.

It should also be noted that these sets are great for road trip and are easily stored when not in use. Has your child tried a magnetic play set? What did they enjoy most about it.
