What Lottie Loves…Learning Resources Measure Mate Review

Review by Lottie Age 7 with some help from Mum…

We were sent a Learning Resources Measure Mate to review and I had lots of fun using it in the garden over the Easter weekend.

The Measure Mate is for children age 4 + and can be used outdoors. It is very easy to put together and I managed to do it all by myself. It has a measure, a trundle wheel, a spirit level, a measuring stick and two bits you can measure between called callipers. It also comes with a bag to keep it in when you take it apart and some nice stickers to decorate it with.

When I had made the Measure Mate I took it out in the garden. I liked using it to measure how big the garden is with the trundle and had fun measuring things up for the flower garden that I am planting. I used the callipers to measure lots of different things I found.

I really enjoyed using the Measure Mate and I have had fun both inside and outside with it. I have been using the measuring stick to measure everyone’s feet and I got to use the spirit level the other day when I was helping my Dad.

This Summer I am going to make a herb planter with a pallet and will be able to use my Measure Mate to help make it!

This will be a really useful tool that I think I will use a lot.

Note from Mum

Lottie had a great time playing with the Measure Mate. Whilst it’s not cheap at around £32 it is well made and will last, more importantly fired her interest in measures . This is an area of maths that has never really caught her attention before- anything that gets them learning practically is well worth considering.

It’s ideal for children age 4 plus- younger children will use it more as a toy and slightly older ones will be able to expand on what they have learnt at school in a fun way.

Splashing About- TERM Wellies Review and a chance to win!

We seem to have spent the last few weeks battling illnesses and bugs so when the weekend came and everyone was well we were all desperate to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air. It also seemed a perfect time for Lottie to try out her lovely new Term wellies that she had been sent to test.

Lottie had a birthday party in the morning so we  all went off to pick her up and after a short delay with a very flat tyre we headed off to the lakes.

We had a great afternoon scooting and running around and enjoyed the play area. Lottie really enjoyed wearing her new boots which until then she had just been wearing to dance around the house in.

She says they are REALLY comfortable and lovely and warm. I am quite jealous as they don’t go up to my size! I would definitely have a pair if they did. Sam loves them too, he keeps stealing them from the cupboard and putting them on when Lottie isn’t looking! We will need to get him his own pair so that she actually gets to wear them when she needs them!

There is a really good choice of colours. Lottie went with the bright red pair and they are really nice. They have a toasty inner lining which keeps them warm in the winter and can come out in the Summer. This also allows a bit more room when your feet grow. They have a little reflective bit at the back too which is useful to help keep you safer at night.

My Mum says that at £21.99 they are a little more money than she would normally spend on wellies but that she can see why because they are much better quality and Lottie can wear them for hours without complaining they hurt her feet which she normally does! She also says they are ‘true to size’. We got Lottie a size larger than her normal shoe size which is what we do with wellies but actually the normal shoe size would have fit her fine.

Maybe no party clothes  next  time!

 

I really like the Term wellies and my sister would definitely recommend them (she would wear them all the time if she was allowed to wear them to school!) We are pleased to have been able to team up with Term to offer you the chance to win a pair of these fantastic wellies in your choice of colour and size EUR 21 to EUR 35.

Good Luck!
