Win Toys for Toddlers! Toy of Choice from FeltyFun! CLOSED!

As we mentioned in a homemade toys for toddlers post this week, we have a tot treat giveaway this week! Our sponsor is Janice with her store Felty Fun! You can check out her store over at:

Felty Fun





I already introduced Felty Fun in short but if you missed it, here is an introduction: 

Felty fun is run by a parent who also happens to be an elementary educator - Janice, and these two things combined have resulted with an inspiration for toys in her store as well as for posts on her blog. All of the items in this store are created with fun and learning in mind: they are colorful and bright (that's fun for little ones!) and at the same time, they are wonderful for sensory play, development of fine motor skills and other early concepts and skills (color matching, sizing, counting, etc.). 


What I personally like about toys from FeltyFun store is that they are all aimed for learning basic skills for toddlers and preschoolers like fine motor skills, early math skills like sorting, matching, counting, learning about basic colors and shapes, and so many more!

I've picked 2 toys to spotlight here and the rest you'll have to check yourself ;) First toy is this button snake. We have one at home and I have to say, button snake is fantastic tool for developing fine motor skills! My daughter used her button snake first time when she was just pass 2 and it was fun for her to "button" and "unbutton" fabric pieces on the ribbon. As we all know, toddlers are yet to learn how to dress up by themselves but this toy surely can help them get a grip of it faster! :) Another thing I like about this game is that it's great game when you're on the go, visiting doctors office or traveling with toddlers. It's small enough to be easily placed in diaper bag or your purse and it doesn't make noise! Yay!


Another educational toy I like a lot from Felty Fun is this Apple counting game. And what I like the most, is the fact that it can grow with a child! At each age and stage of development, it can be used differently. For 2 year olds, it can be used as a story prompt when you explain about seasons - autumn and apple picking. At this age it can be wonderful sensory and fine motor skill tool as toddler uses pieces to form pictures on the table or a felt board. As child gets older, at age 3, you can add dice and play simple game of adding as many apples to the tree as resulted in thrown dice. Excellent for practicing social skills (taking turns in cooperative and competitive play) as well for basic math skills counting numbers 1-6. For kids 4+, this game can be turned into addition and subtraction game using 2 dice.


We have one really nice surprise for all the readers of our blog! For the time this giveaway is open (May 29th - June 11th) all of our US & CAN readers can purchase any of the toys from Felty Fun store and they will get FREE SHIPPING! :) Trust me, as these toys are pretty un-expensive, shipping is h-u-g-e addition to the price!

  3. Ooops, just realised I forgot to mention that I'd pick the snake for my two girls. Princess Pea has recently learned how to do buttons, but could use more practice. And Sweet Pea isn't there yet, but will be before I know it! :'(

  4. I would choose the Popsicle Color Matching Game for my 3 yr old, and when she is done playing with it, pass it on to her preschool teacher.

  5. I'd choose the Montessori transferring set, though the button snake is also very great. I'd give it to my son, who loves working with his hands.

  6. Felty toys are really cute and colorful. You could make your own design out of it. One good thing in that toy is that the texture is nice to touch.

  7. I would pick the popsicle color matching game, I think, for my 2 1/2 year old son. Or possibly the pizza or button snake...lol. Decisions, decisions. He loves stuff like this and I can imagine hours and hours of fun!!

  29. I'd love to win the How Many Apples on the Tree Game. My little one is only 2.5 years old, but he's already counting up to 20. I'd love to introduce this game with one die. He's at the right age to learn about games, rules, taking turns, etc.

  72. Pretty nice toy. But always prioritized the safety of kids regarding on the toys that are given to them. But I think this toy was safe and reliable in harmless playing.
