The top 5 educational gifts this season!

The top 5 educational gifts this season!

We have a tradition in our family that started back when I was a girl. My mom would let friends and family know what subjects interested me or what subjects I enjoyed in school and they would buy Christmas gifts that complemented all these interests. While this didn’t happen for every birthday or Christmas, parents and grandparents always tried to give gifts that would have lasting benefits and foster a desire to explore, learn or read.

And here we are, continuing down this path. Both my parents and in-laws love to give gifts that inspire the learning adventure. Many times, we’ll plan gifts around a central theme of something they are interested in or learning about. And this way the grandparents are thrilled to get to play a part in furthering their education in a creative way.

FitBrain is perfect for this type of shopping! All of their toys and games are there to stimulate a solid foundation for developing a child’s understanding of the universes of colour, shape, texture and size. Each of our products have been carefully selected as a tool to stimulate and develop a child to his or her full potential. The FitBrain products will contribute to stimulate children through their various stages of development. FitBrains’ product range addresses these specific skills, whether it is a child's first or second language: visual perception; concentration; memory; logic and reasoning; hand-eye co-ordination, fine motor skills; gross motor skills; number skills; reading; sequencing and understanding letters.
