Sorry for the later post. I had to teach my immersion Spanish class this morning (I'll post the lesson plan when i get a chance).

It felt like it was Christmas when I received a big package from Ingenio filled with bilingual toys for my kids to review. I knew I would love toys that teach Spanish and English, but would they? The ultimate test as to whether a toy really teaches is having the kids play with it. My kids loved the toys!

Ingenio is a great new company that is "the first bilingual educational toys and games brand in the USA. Every Ingenio product is designed to be bilingual, innovative and fun." How fun is that! I love bilingual toys and now there is a website where all the toys, games and puzzles are bilingual.

We received a Smart Projector that projects pages for the children to trace. All you do it put a paper under and turn on the light (so easy to use!). It teaches how to write all the letters and numbers. My daughter loves coloring the 24 animals and then the animals names' are written out in English and Spanish. She loves tracing now!! This is such a creative product. It's my favorite!

Ingenio wants to give one of their toys to someone reading this blog! Spellable is a unique product where children can spell 3 letter words in English and Spanish. What a great way to learn sounds in Spanish and English!



Want to win a Spellable puzzle?

How to Enter:
Go here to Ingenio's website and look at their products. Come back to this post and make a comment telling us another toy that interests you (other than Spellable). You're done, unless you want a better chance of winning....

I will be looking for these toys at the store. Kim made a joke today that Ashton was crying in Spanish and I couldn't understand him. :) I guess I need to brush up on the basics before he learns to talk.

I really like the opposite cards. I started taking the children to a beginner Spanish class with me so they are already picking up Spanish words. Thanks for the giveaway!

I love the North America map puzzle especially the inclusion of the Mexican states. Where else can you get something like that? It's great.
