When asked to rank activities in order of preference, children routinely put "learning" just below "eating veggies" and "fighting monsters," but place "learning through play" somewhere between "ice-cream snowball fights" and "fishing with Batman." Foster your child's love of learning with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of toys, games, and learning materials from Brighter Beginnings' online store.
Brighter Beginnings provides parents with a wide array of toys and materials that blur the line between recreation and education. Simultaneously teach kids about geography and the intricacies of parliamentary democracy with a wooden jigsaw puzzle of Canada ($9.99), or give them a head start on their ABCs with an alphabet puzzle perfect for making signs or composing adorable ransom notes ($16.99). A customizable heart mirror lets budding surgeons express their artistic sides with a kit of gems, ribbons, and glitter ($9.99), and Telling Time Match Me teaches kids about digital and analog clock faces, using matching, word and picture recognition skills, and children's natural obsession with punctuality ($4.99). Science-related toys such as My First Magnet Kit introduce children to magnetic fields and poles with a supply of magnetic wands and balls, and a compass to keep your GPS honest on long road trips ($16.99).
Brighter Beginnings is a perfect way to give youngsters a brain-inflating knowledge boost before they start school, or to simply expand on the concepts they learn in class. This deal includes free shipping for Groupon orders of more than $75, and Brighter Beginnings offers customers a 30-day return policy on most new, unopened items, so parents can order without fearing the sharp pangs and slight tickles of buyer's remorse.
