Fundanoodle Prize Pack Giveaway | 2012 Back to School Bash #wingiveaways

by Marcy on July 30, 2012 · 119 comments

If you are looking for fun learning activities for your kids ages 3-first grade, look no further than Fundanoodle. Fundanoodle is a new education readiness brand from Carolina Pad, developed with the help of pediatric occupational therapists. They have created systems to help with handwriting, find and gross motor coordination, touch and visual exploration, problem solving skills and more!

These systems are broken down into 3 age or learning level groups:

  • 3 Year Olds
  • Pre-K to K
  • K to 1st

I received a variety of products to review from Fundanoodle including: Muscle Movers: Upper case gross Motor Cards, MagnaStix: I can build Lower Case Letters, I Can Pound Activity Block, I Can Cut! Cutting Activity Book, I Can Write Upper Case, Max and Alphine’s Adventures! Activity Book 2, and Dry Erase Lettering Practice Board.

I have a 2 year old and a 6 year old, and I was happy to see that there are activities in this product line for both of them. So far we have tried the Dry Erase Lettering Practice Board, I Can Pound Activity Block and I Can Write Upper Case activities. I am beyond thrilled with these products! I love that the systems are easy to follow, bright and colorful, and that they  make learning fun.  So many of these skills are skills that I have been wanting to work on with my girls, but I wasn’t sure where to begin.

From my experience so far, I feel that Fundanoodle makes learning at home easy – and affordable. 

You can purchase individual Fundanoodle writing or activity tablets or purchase multi-activity kits. Each system is color coordinated by age group to help you select the right product for your child.Kids develop skills at different rates, so you should choose the activity book or kit that best suits your child’s skill level.

If your kids love to play with your iPhone or iPad, be sure to check out the FREE Fundanoodle App. You’ll receive 4 letters and numbers for FREE, and can download the remaining letters and numbers for $1.99.

You can learn much more about Fundanoodle and all of the great products that are available for purchase here. Also be sure to check Fundanoodle out on Facebook and Twitter.

Fundanoodle products can be purchased at a variety of retailers including: Amazon, Giant Eagle, Meijer and Target. View a full list of retailers here.

I am thrilled that Fundanoodle has given me a prize pack to give away to one of you! Products will be customized to fit the age(s) of your child(ren)!

11 Deatrice July 30, 2012 at 5:05 PM

I try to change things up with my son (age 4), but he especially loves reading books at bedtime. We are now focusing on finding words that start with specific letters while we read and if there is a consistent word on every page, we often find that word each time we see it.
