The Toddler Toolkit is my latest addition to the My Busy Bots family. It is a compact deck of flashcards filled with fun, creative ways for your little one to learn. It's a fantastic way to engage with your child by sparking conversations with them. Chatting with your child is such a powerful way for them to develop their language and overall learning.
The toolkit pages follow the alphabet, but each page has lots of talking points. From letter sounds to colours, animal noises, emotions, weather, vehicles, shapes, imagination... and much more! The idea is you grab the toolkit, find a comfy spot and spend some time having a look at a few pages (no need to go in order, let your child open it randomly and start there - more fun!).
The toolkit is cleverly designed with a large screw at the bottom so you can fan out the toolkit as you use it, keeping all the pages safely together (no losing random cards down sofas or in cars!). The pages are all professionally printed and matt laminated (perfect for little hands) making them more durable, plus the corners are rounded and there is a velcro flap at the top keeping it all neatly together.
The Toddler Toolkit is a fun, compact, creative learning resource for children from 2 years and up. It's so much more than regular flashcards, ensuring that your little one is learning through play! Have fun learning together!
