disclosure: we were provided a free set of the Laser Pegs Educational Series for purposes of review and to leave with a kindergarten class. All thoughts and observations are entirely our own. We have talked about Laser Pegs on my Mom’s Site (HERE) and this is a similar product. The battery loaded base is still a storage case and interchangeable with other sets but the “blocks” are larger for smaller hands.
39 games. That is what the box said and we checked it out when I took the set into the Kindergarten class that I work with.
Everything from basic checkers to tic-tac-toe is playable and for the really adventurous, you can even practice words for spelling bees!
I explained this to the class and then, shut off the lights so they could see the “laser” part of it. THAT really tripped their triggers!
After I explained it to the class, we split into small groups and they took turns playing with the set. They made towers, checked out shapes, spelled words, classified colors and more! They thought of a few different things that I hadn’t even thought of…like checking to see if the battery loaded base worked with Legos. (It does but they don’t glow in the dark).
It was fun to sit back and watch them go at it…their teacher is going to observe for a week or two and then let me know how the class likes it. When she does, I will add her thoughts to this review!
It’s amazing how much kids can learn through play.
