One university student took this time to take her collection to new heights and found comfort and community in her collecting hobby. Rebecca Brown, 21, has a wide array of 325 common and rare Squishmallows. During such an isolating time she connected with her classmates on zoom and bonded over a shared love for the plush toys. However, with rising interest, Brown has some concerns. As a result of the demand, she worries that they will become harder to find. As she continues to build her collection, she has found many empty store shelves that have been cleared out by other people. But in some ways, it makes the hunt even more exciting.

Best Educational Robot Toys For Kids in Mississauga

SELECT EDUCATIONAL TOY FOR YOUR CHILD'S HEALTHY DEVELOPMENT

Finding a toy that fits your child's healthy development is a tough job. Choosing the right toy for your child is very important and most parents want their child to start learning at an early age because those years are the building blocks of a child’s personality for that get your child an educational toy which solves all your problems at once. But the children of today's generation would rather play video games and watch videos online than play with toys for entertainment which seems to influence their mental development by making it slow and weak.

A study of 3 years of 3000 kids showed that gaming doesn’t help inattentive kids instead video games make them more impulsive and less attentive (Temma Ehrenfeld, September 16, 2018).

INTRODUCING Rov: The GEEKY Rover- SAY NO TO VIDEO GAMES

Keeping every aspect in mind PSB Toys in Mississauga launched a new product Rov: The Geeky Rover for all the parents who want their child to be smart and creative at the same time. As its name implies, Rov: The GEEKY Rover provides education and fun for children. This is not a typical toy robot that moves just when children play the button because Geeky Rover needs to be built from scratch to make it work and your kids can now finally get rid of video games. Fundamentally, GEEKY Rover is a STEM toy for better learning and practice of new concepts for growing-up children.

Sensory Edge Points out the Advantages of STEM toys:

·        Introduce kids to various concepts of science and education

·        Teach problem solving

·        Make learning fun

·        Encourage creativity and critical thinking

·        Teach motor skills and coordination

·        Bring family together

Why to choose Rov: The GEEKY Rover for your kid?

EDUCATIONAL

It is a robot car that has to be built by your child using electrical circuits and wires. Kids can also design their robot car's body using their own creativity. GEEKY Rover helps your child be constructive and intelligent by building his or her own car robot which further creates a scientific curiosity among the children because they need to manipulate the electrical circuit and wires to make their robot move.

FUN AND CREATIVE

Geeky Rover also allows children to be creative because they must design the whole body of their robot car themselves. Here is the fun part, all the tools to design which includes paint colors, colored papers and cool stickers are provided in the kit. The toy is so engaging to children that increases their focus and duration of attention. Like other STEM toys, GEEKY Rover helps kids to develop pertinent problem solving, critical thinking and creativity skills.

BRINGS FAMILY TOGETHER

The robot toy is also helpful for parents because Rov keeps their child busy which allows their parents to keep up with their busy schedule without any worry because parents know that their child is investing their time into something which is educational rather than watching tv or playing video games. But for some parents, building robots with their kids also brings the entire family together  and help parents to spend more quality time with their kids.

Is it too hard to build Rov: The GEEKY Rover?

INSTRUCTIONAL MANUAL

The answer is NO. If you follow the correct steps of the instruction manual, it is easy and interesting to build the robot. GEEKY Rover is designed in a way that children find it amusing and educational instead of frustrating to build because the instruction guide to construct the robot is provided with the robot car kit itself.

Education through instruction manual

VIDEO GUIDE FOR LEARNING TO BUILD THE ROBOT

In any case, when the child finds it difficult to follow the steps given in the manual, you can always visit PSB toy’s site which has the complete video with the instructions to build the robot car. The video describes each wire and how to fit it in the electrical circuit which results in robot movement and it also shows some design ideas for the robot car’s body.

ASK STAFF MEMBERS TO HELP YOUR KIDS

And still, the child is unable to build the robot or it doesn’t work, you can ask for help from the skilled work staff of PSB Toys who are trained to build the Geeky Rover which is absolutely free of cost. Employees can teach your child to build the rover too which creates an educational environment for your child.

It creates an environment that guides your child’s brain and aims to make learning fun. The educational tablet has a very easy to use software. It is child proof and durable.

What does an Educational Tablet do?

A modern educational tablet (Tabucation) is filled with ultimate features to enhance your child’s learning capabilities through various video games installed in it. Tabucation is focused on fun-learning because it is important for the kid to learn to give their complete attention to the tablet therefore, they enjoy what they learn. The educational tablet is bilingual and has been designed to enable your toddler to learn new languages such as English, French, Mandarin and Punjabi. The educational tablet focuses on a toddlers' cognitive thinking skills. It has a first generation stylus. It is used to teach children to write and draw. This makes sure that children do not lose the hang of writing.

The Benefits of Tabucation!

The Educational tablet has different levels (Beginner, Intermediate and Advance). Each educational tablet is filled with learning modules in which your child will have to clear a level to pass on to the other. As your child’s brain grows there is an increase in the level of difficulty which challenges your toddler to do better. This focuses on expanding your child’s analytical thinking capabilities. It hence encourages them to take on new challenges after a game ends. At the end of every game there is a reward to keep your toddler motivated. Tabucation has its center of attention on the child to keep them engrossed for long hours and challenging their capabilities. There are no tests, the toddler will have unlimited chances to repeat a level. The correct answer is always taught at the end of every level if answered incorrectly.

When should a toddler be introduced to technology?

“The best time to introduce a child to a tablet is when they are at least 2 years old” (Mark Zadvinskis, 2021). Nowadays, every child  has learned to use technology. The educational tablet has restricted all social media contents and eliminated all parental controls because the content it showcases is already filtered. The operation of the Tabucation is confined between learning and gaming. It’s their world with your rules! There is an application through which parents can track their toddlers progress to decide and schedule which learning modules they want to introduce to their children. The educational tablet also has a self-updating feature most importantly introduces new learning module grade wise and plans on giving your child never ending knowledge.

Why choose Tabucation?

“Some research indicates that specific apps and games can enhance kids' ability to concentrate” (Heba Hasan, 2015). After the Coronavirus pandemic, we have seen a drastic incline in the use of technology. It has become obligatory for everyone to shift to technology most importantly to function and keep up with the entire world. Tabucation focuses on toddlers to become tech-savvy. What’s more, Tabucation does not need an internet connection. So now your toddler can learn on the go. They can also listen to thousands of hours of fun, educational and inspirational audible books which are already downloaded on the tablet. It has a durable protective case and screen protector which protects the tablet against dust, bumps and drops.

FREE REPAIRS FOR 1 YEAR. Tabucation has a warranty for one year that provides completely free repairs for 1 year.
