Smart Globe Explorer from Oregon Scientific Review

Smart Globe

The kids love learning about the world we live in and finding where the countries are that we have visited on a map or globe. Currently Isaac is learning all about Finland and they are doing a project comparing daylight hours and temperatures between Finland and the UK as their teachers Dad lives over there. We have been sent the Smart Globe Explorer to review and it is a great addition to his learning. The globe itself comes with a wireless… Continue Reading “Smart Globe Explorer from Oregon Scientific Review”

A Visit to Dynamic Earth – Edinburgh

A Visit to Dynamic Earth - Edinburgh

On our final day of our visit to Scotland we let the kids decide where they wanted to visit and they all chose to return to Edinburgh as they wanted to go to Dynamic Earth. I bargained for a walk up Arthur’s Seat with them first as Dynamic Earth is part of the Holyrood estate and is sat at the base of the hill, next door to the Scottish Parliament building.

My Friend Freddy Bear Review

My Friend Freddy Bear

Do you remember Teddy Ruxpin? Teddy Ruxpin was an animatronic children’s toy, in the form of a talking bear. The bear’s mouth and eyes moved while “reading” stories which were played on an audio tape cassette deck built into its back and was one of my favourite toys way back in the 1980’s. My Friend Freddy Bear looks very similar but of course it is bang up to date with a bluetooth feature and a free app where you type… Continue Reading “My Friend Freddy Bear Review”
