I love working with Educational Insights. Not only do they produce toys that kids want to play with, but toys that help them learn along the way as well. They have plenty to choose from, and are categorized by ages! That's really helpful!
This time around we got to use the Smencils. These are like regular pencils but they smell YUMMY. Both my kids love to write and draw, and my daughter loved that they came in little plastic tubes (to help save the smell)..
The pencils are bigger than the normal "pencils", which are easier for my 3 year old to grasp. She is the "artist" of my kids. She is always drawing and coloring. Aidan is more a hands-on "gamer" type. He loves to play board games!
When we got these, Adisyn was super excited for me to open them. She stood there waiting to see what was in those tubes. As I pulled them out and seen that they all had a unique name to go with the certain colors, I thought that was cool. Reminded me of the "smelly markers" that came out when I was a kid.
It's fun to see my kids exploring different senses. They smell absolutely amazing and the colors are really bright! Both my son and daughter loved them, they are always drawing and writing something- now what they write smells good. LOL.
They loved that they smelled so great, and I love that they are made from recycled newspaper. Amazing concept!! AND they come with erasers too! They come in individual tubes that are guaranteed to make the scent last for 2 years!
