National Geographic has been around for ever. It seems like parents love National Geographic for the wonderful pictures and lessons on conservation and protecting our planet. While the National Geographic magazine has been a staple in homes for years, in 2012 their is a new National Geographic item – toys!
Uncle Milton has now released a series of nine toys under the National Geographic label. The toys are being call the National Geographic Explorer Series. We did a quick search for reviews on the National Geographic toys and found this excellent video review from DadDoes.Com –
The video shows 3 toys from the line – the Sky Flare, Shoe Lights and Earth Tag. After watching the video, it is clear the toys do not represent brand new concepts. Most of the toys have already been made in other forms, but it is the Activity Guide that comes with it that gives the toy the National Geographic feel.
With all the electronics my kids play, I am into any toy that gets them playing outside and learning more about our planet and the environment. I think I will give some of the toys a try.
