Ecomom has made a place for itself in my house. They are one of my all time favorite companies for several reasons. I love that they take the time to select high quality, safe products for their site. This takes the guess work out for moms. I know I spend so much time researching this, that, and the other thing when it comes to my daughter. I love that I can go to Ecomom and trust that they are putting that work in for me and I don't have to give it another thought. I also love, love, love their customer service. Never have I seen a company respond faster or work harder to make their customers happy. And a third reason is how much they care what we (moms and dads) think. They are always asking for feedback, suggestions, comments on the products they carry, the services they offer, and how we feel with the overall experience of working with them.
For all of those reasons, and more, I have featured them on my blog several times and am thrilled to continue that relationship with them. I love sharing different products they offer with my readers! So here is the latest item I would like to show you.
Two great companies have come together for this one: Ecomom carries Melissa and Doug toys! I love Melissa and Doug products. I think they are high quality and promote educational play. Ecomom carries a number of their puzzles, but this one is ideal for children around my daughter's age (19 months).
Happy pets play in the yard on this extra thick wooden puzzle that includes eight easy-grasp, chunky pet pieces. Each pet animal can stand upright for pretend play and has a full-color, matching picture underneath. Encourages hand-eye, fine motor and creative expression skills.
Why Ecomom Likes it: Puzzles are a great way for children to learn important skills in matching, identifying and independence. Start with something familiar, like pets, and move to more abstract concepts...you'll see how much your little one can take in!
Why do I like it? For pretty much all the same reasons. I love that the puzzle has chunky pieces that are easy for little hands to grab and move around. I also think it's so important for their to be a matching image under each piece so that all they have to do is match. My daughter is in the very beginning stages of doing puzzles. She needs me to be an active part of the experience and uses my verbal cues to guide her through. But this is an incredible learning experience that is promoting so many skills including fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, cognitive reasoning, animal recognition, matching, and more. And... it's fun!
