Learning Resources Measuring Motors Review & Giveaway

Posted by Jenna | Monday, October 08, 2012


Like all kids, mine get bored from time to time throughout the day. That's why I like to have a variety of educational and fun activities, games, and toys for them to play with and use. They love to explore, discover and learn new things which is why I always turn to companies like Learning Resources for things of this nature.



Learning Resources is the leading manufacturer of innovative, hands-on educational products for classrooms and the home. They have been a trusted source for teachers and parents for more than 25 years and continue to grow and impress with their diverse product line of now over 1300 products!

I love the variety of hands-on activities offered through Learning Resources and always seem to find something new when browsing their user-friendly site. One that stuck out to me right away was the Measuring Motors Math Activity Set! This is right up Kaelyn's alley (as well as Kaden's!).
Features/Benefits:
  • Compare and estimate cars of varying sizes
  • Great for counting, sorting, patterning, number stories, problems solving, etc
  • Includes 88 cars in 4 colors and 3 sizes
  • Tracks are marked in 1" increments - allows for transition to standard measurement
  • Geared toward grades PreK+
When the Measuring Motors toy arrived, both Kaelyn and Kaden were excited to check it out. Kaelyn new it was a fun "learning activity" and Kaden saw the cars and was thrilled about that!!
Upon opening the box, I was really happy to find the quality to be so great. The cars and tracks are very well made which is great, because my kids have been playing with them a lot. I appreciate knowing it will withstand and hold up to a lot of use! 

The cars come in 4 bright colors and 3 sizes. Without telling the kids the different things they could do with them, I just sat back and watched as they explored to begin with. They each grabbed tracks and started lining up cars on them. Kaden was pretending he was driving the cars on them for a while which I thought was neat. Not only are these educational, but they also encourage imaginative play.

Once he saw Kaelyn lining hers up, he began to do the same. Without any prompting she was eager to make patterns with the different colors and sizes. Kaden then began to follow suit. I love how he watches and learns from her!

As we played together more and more, Kaelyn started comparing the cars figuring out how many small ones made up a big one, etc. Kaden was busy sorting them by color.
I love that this activity is one that both my 4 year old and 2 year old can do - working on skills that are valuable for both ages. Neither one gets bored and could play with this for hours on end. I've been really happy with the quality, fun and educational value it provides and would definitely recommend it to others. And, with Christmas not far off, it would make a great gift idea as well!
