Wall Coasters . . . I'm Giving One Away!

If you are looking for a toy which is not only incredible fun, but one which is an educational toy children will actually play with for hours at a time, then definitely take a good look at Wall Coasters! My grandson, Josiah, loves this toy! Since his little brother, Caleb, is too little for Wall Coasters - Caleb is one and Wall Coasters has marbles in it - Josiah gets to play with this when Caleb goes to bed! It is a special thing which he and Poppa enjoy together for some, "Josiah and Poppa time!" I love watching how he is able to think and design the "tracks" for his Wall Coaster - his "mechanical" mind really loves the designing part of this toy!

Wall Coasters   
By - Active Products, Inc
Ages - 5+ (we use with our three year old grandson, but provided very close supervision and he does not put things in his mouth)

Favorite Features -

  • this toy is so much fun!!!!
  • encourages logical thinking, mechanical thinking, cause and effect and cooperation . . . plus it encourages interaction with grandparents or parents and children
  • the idea came from a creative 12 year old boy!
  • easily attaches to the wall with poster putty and comes down in just minutes!
  • unique and fun, wall coasters is unlike any other toy!
I was sent a set of Wall Coasters to review so one evening when my grandsons were spending the night, we brought it out for Josiah to try with his Poppa - after Caleb went to sleep because Caleb wasn't even one yet and he is too little for Wall Coasters. Josiah was only three at the time, but once he saw what this was and how to build a wall coaster, well, that was all there was to it! He jumped right in with the designing of the wall coaster - loved running the marble through his coaster and had so much fun!!!! Now one of his favorite things to do when he is at our house is to play with wall coasters! 

I was really amazed at how quickly he was able to catch on to how to build the wall coasters and how to design a fun set up. I know wall coasters will be a big part of the fun of spending time at poppa and grandma's house - especially in the winter when the weather isn't so great outside! Wall Coasters is unique, educational and great fun!

I am so very happy to say not only did Active Products send one Wall Coasters for me to review, but they are making another set available for me to give away (USA only)! If you would like to be included in this give-away - which will be on November 29, 2012 - please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook"  box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry.
