Lakeshore Learning Christmas

* I received product from Lakeshore Learning in exchange for this post, no other compensation was received. All words and opinions are 100% honest and my own

To say that my minis are spoiled is an understatement! These babes of mine are so hard to shop for, not because there’s a lack of what they want, but because there’s a lack of what they need.  On top of that, I’m very picky when it comes to buying toys. I stick to things that are educational and aren’t just the latest fad that’ll soon be broken or tossed aside.

In a search for just such toys, I came across Lakeshore Learning.


Their free catalogs (request yours here) started arriving in my mailbox and I’d just toss them to the minis to let them browse through it, personally not interested in flipping through what I thought were, meaningless expensive toys. Then mini man would come and point out items to me like their microscope kitbug discovery kit, or their dino fossils discovery lab. Exactly the kind of things that 9 yr old art and science loving mini man could spend all day doing.

3 yr old mini monster loved the transforming alpha-bots and the big bolt construction set.

Their search by grade/age or category (art, science, etc…) feature is so convenient to find items that are perfect for your child’s skills and likes. There were even a ton of products that 1 yr old mini queen would love like the color discovery boxes or the no spill paint cups.


I love the practicality and usefulness of all their products! Everything is educational but so fun!

To add to our play kitchen I chose the farmers market stand to gift to the minis for Christmas.


How adorable right?!

The hubbs and I have wanted something like this for a while now and were even thinking of making one ourselves, when I saw this and knew that we had to have it. We’re planning on having it all assembled and ready to go for Christmas morning so the minis see it right when they come downstairs. I can tell you, they’re gonna have the biggest smiles on their faces, they love their play kitchen and playing like their at a farmers market/grocery store!

    That farmers market stand is adorable!

    I do love Lakeshore, I got a couple of gifts for Co there last year. They have cute stocking stuffers too!

    My mother-in-law has bought my girls some toys from Lakeshore so we now get the catalogs. My kids also love paging through them – seriously it is thanks to Lakeshore that I was able to potty train my 2 year old because she just sat on the potty paging through the catalog forever – ha! I think they have fantastic toys and I am so glad you are offering the 20% off coupon!
