Learning Resources Pretend & Play Post Office Review

As a parent I am keen for my children to learn new things and I find one way they begin to pick things up is through playing. By learning through play, the kids are having fun and a lot of the time don't even realise that they are being taught things because they are busy enjoying themselves.

Learning Resources are a company that produce a wide range of learning aids and toys for children aging from two right up to twelve. Catering for children, parents and schools, they manafacture many award winning toys that help build your child's skills through exploration, imagination and most of all fun.

This lovely company sent me their Pretend & Play Post Office set to review, of course my lovely children would be the ones doing all the testing.

This set costs £35.95, you may look at that price and think slightly expensive but I guarantee once you've read all of my review you will change your mind. I was surprised at how small the box was considering that inside there was over 150 pieces that help your children learn different skills, see what I mean, already you get a lot for what you pay!!

Included is an open and close sign, pen, lots of parcel boxes to make up, letters, envelopes and stamps, tax discs, postcards and money. It is like stepping into a real life post office, postman pat eat your heart out.

This set lets your child's imagination run wild whilst you fill their heads with knowledge. Your children can learn to add and subtract by paying for sending letters and parcels etc. You can help them with their writing as they can write letters and postcards, they can even write the date on the open and close sign. There is a clock so that you can encourage them to learn how to tell the time. As well as all of this your children can learn to play together, teaching them to share. The possibilities with this set are endless.

I love how once they have finished playing with it, all of the pieces fit into the "post office supplies" velcro pocket and it all folds in. There is a carry handle so that is easily transported too. 

I can't give you a true idea of this set without showing you my kids playing with it, so please take a look at the video below, it is only 5 minutes out of the hours they have played with it, however I think it shows just how lovely this set is.

I would recommend this set to any parent who has children who enjoy pretend play. The only thing I would like to see, is separate packs of letters, stamps etc to buy because my children went through these quite quickly. Overall this is lovely set that provides hours of fun, slightly different every time you play depending on what role you choose!!!


Disclaimer : I was sent this play set free of charge for reviewing purposes however all thoughts and opinions are my own.

    James Bond will be replaced as 007 in No Time to Die Full Movie Online -- but it is not what fans may think. The question of who that may be has been the subject of wild speculation, and it did not help when news leaked that British actress Lashana Lynch would be replacing Craig as 007 in the upcoming film. But while reports have confirmed that Lynch's character will find the 007 title, she will not be the new Bond -- and that she won't be in future movies, either.

    The idea of a female James Bond is certainly not as far off as it could have been. Traditionally, the Bond franchise has treated women more like sex objects and disposable pieces of arm candy than actual characters. But changing that has reportedly been a huge focus of the team supporting No Time to Die Full Movie Online. The new Bond girl, played by Ana de Armas, will not be the traditional"femme fatale" of the past, possibly. It is not completely out of the question to find a female James Bond in the future, but unless there's a massive change of plans, it will not be Lashana Lynch.

    What is Taskmaster's actual identification in the imminent Black Widow Full Movie Online film? After literal years of speculation and behind-the-scenes dialogue, a solo movie for Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow is almost upon us, and is set to dive into Natasha's murky beyond and origins. Of route, the OG Avenger and SHIELD operative tragically died within the manner of retrieving the Soul Stone in Avengers: Endgame, that means Natasha's fate is sealed, and her new film is set within the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, as opposed to forming the subsequent chronological bankruptcy inside the MCU.

    While Natasha's finishing may not be a mystery in Black Widow Full Movie Online, that shortfall is compensated with the aid of arguably the most mysterious and secretive MCU villain but: Taskmaster. Clad in black and permanently masked, the Black Widow trailers and legitimate snap shots have shown Taskmaster mimicking the fighting kinds of Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Panther and more of Natasha's pals at Avengers HQ. No actor or actress has officially been introduced as portraying Taskmaster, and their hybrid style of fighting has caused rampant speculation as to their identification, as well as their courting to Natasha.
