Geosafari Sonic Sleuth

disclaimer:  Products in this post were given to me for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review.  All opinions are my own.

In my family my hubby does the sports and I handle the learning.  It works for us, I don't know the first thing about sports and my hubby just doesn't like learning/reading/art like I do.  That is okay though, my boys get the best of both worlds!!  With that said when we Christmas shop my hubby tends to get them gloves, bats and all things sports.  I go more for art sets, books, and toys that teach.  Now don't get me wrong we also get them other stuff.  We try to stick pretty close to their list, but we also try to get them stuff that we picked up.  Something that has just a little extra love since it wasn't on their list and it something we picked out when we saw it and thought of them.  So it should be without surprise I do a lot of my shopping on sights like Educational Insights.  That have a whole array of toys that are not only fun, but also teach kiddos something as they play.  Or at the very least get them asking questions about why certain things work the way they do.
This year I can't wait to give Brandon Jr the Geosafari Sonic Sleuth
