With such a deep connection between play and learning, making sure your child has entertaining and educational toys is really important.
But how do you know if a product promotes learning?
Run by Amanda Morin, author of The Everything Kids’ Learning Activities Book, former teacher and mom of three, The Learning Treehouse is here to help!
By providing honest, in-depth reviews of kids’ products — from toys to games to apps and books — The Learning Treehouse can help you choose fun products that will build on your child’s existing skills and help him climb to new heights of development!
Mr Learning Treehouse & the Kid Testers
Amanda is aided in the review process by Mr. Learning Treehouse (sometimes referred to as Mr. LT) and her Kid Testers #1, #2 and #3 (sometimes referred to as KTs). Our Kid Testers range in age from preschool to high school.
If The Learning Treehouse is looking at an item that does not suit the age range of the availble KTs, we will seek out KTs in the correct age range, as it is our belief that you can only test the true educational value of an item by letting kids try it out.
The Learning Treehouse will consider publishing guest reviews of products by non-biased reviewers. If you would like to submit a guest review, please contact us first with the name of the product you would like to review and why you think it would be a good match for our site.
All guest reviews must be the original work of the author and not previously published on the Internet. Guest reviews are subject to editing to ensure the post is in line with standards and tone of The Learning Treehouse.
