the review

We recently had the opportunity to review the Farmers Market Color Sorting Set from Learning Resources.

It’s quickly become one of our new favorite educational games.

We’ve particularly enjoyed this set, because my daughter’s old enough now to really play along. Even better when we happen upon educational games that the whole family can play together!

Playing one of her new favorites in educational games

My daughter, 2, was particularly interested in sorting colors. She has most of her colors down, though she still stumbles on a few.

While we played, for instance, the red fruits and veggies were never red. Always pink. (To be fair, she does find a way to work in her favorite color to just about every conversation!) This will be a great way to keep reinforcing her colors.

My son went through the color sorting activity as a natural first activity. Since he’s well-versed on his colors at this point, he quickly moved to an activity he had even more fun with: setting up the farmer’s market. It’s not often that educational games can also be used for open-ended imaginative play. Perfect!

We took turns being the farmer and the customer. All our goods were separated by color and we’d take trips to the farmer’s market with our trusty reusable shopping bag. We’d request particular fruits or veggies, shake hands and be on our way.

This was a perfect opportunity for me to introduce some new, unfamiliar fruits and veggies to him. Eggplant, for instance, isn’t a regular at our house.

Maybe this is one step toward getting him to explore new options in his diet. First step: play nutrition-based educational games. Next step: Try every veggie ever offered! 😉

The first step worked so far, that’s for sure. In fact, we played farmer’s market ALL afternoon – no exaggeration!

One happy farmer!

I can’t stress enough how much I love when we find educational games and toys that truly engage each of our kids on such different levels.

I love how well-made and well-designed each piece is in the set. The individual pieces are made of a very high-quality plastic that’s both realistic-looking and durable.

Everything fits nicely into the original box – great for clean-up time and for keeping everything together!

Without question, this is one of our very favorite educational games from Learning Resources. With the number of ways we can play with this set, it’ll be a standard in our house for the next few years. And I have no doubt that the high quality set will hold up to regular use.

 High-quality, softer plastic pieces.
 Wide age range (both 2- and 4.5-year-old loved it!)

    Oh my goodness, this looks adorable! My daughter is 3 and really struggling with her colors. We’re not sure if she may be color blind or just having a hard time remembering, but this would be a great tool to help teach her!

  2. says

    I am in LOVE with this. . .this is a GREAT GREAT GREAT toy – and though my kids are a little old for it. . .if I win, I plan to donate it to our pre-K, which cares for kids from 3 months to 5 years, typically developed and special needs – and this would be a great addition to their learning toys.

    Thanks for sharing – I’m hoping I have a toddler/preschooler to buy a present for soon!

    I love strawberries! Strawberry cobbler, Strawberry pie, Strawberry shortcake, Strawberries with sugar, and freshly picked strawberries warm from the sun!

    My favorite veggie is cauliflower now days. I am gluten free and it has become so versatile in mashed potato, pizza crust and other things. My granddaughter would love this.

  5. says

    What an adorable set from LR!! I love it! My favorite vegetable is zucchini…I love it so much that I named my blog “Zucchini Summer” even though it isn’t a foodie blog at all. :)
