You all know that I am a fan of toys that do more than just occupy my kids. I want toys that are going to help my kids learn, and help them develop their cognitive and fine motor skills. Basically, make it fun, but give it a purpose.

My Review of ebeanstalk’s Nesting Buckets
I recently received the Nesting Buckets to test out on Parker. Parker is now at the age where he is into everything. And by into, I literally mean into, on top of, and tearing things apart to see how they work. I wasn’t sure how much he’d enjoy the buckets, just because they don’t do much.
Boy, oh boy, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Do you know how much an inquisitive 17 month old can do with buckets like this? The possibilities are endless! He can nest them inside each other – which is great. It teaches him fine motor skills, and how things work. (Does this bucket go next, or a different one?) He can turn the buckets over and stack them – another favorite thing to do. Although, we’d barely get it stacked to his head before he’d smack the tower across the room. He thought it was hysterical.
Another feature that’s great is that the lid to the largest bucket has shapes cut out of it, and the set includes small shaped blocks. So, if he gets tired of nesting a stacking, he can work at matching up the shapes and dropping the blocks into the bucket.
But, do you know what his absolute favorite thing to do with the toy was? It was putting the buckets on his head and trying to see how long he could balance it. He’s try it with every size bucket and figured out which ones stayed on longer, and which ones fell off to quickly. He was so proud of himself when he got the buckets to stay put.
I love that something so simple brought so much pleasure to Parker. And not just fun, but he was learning – whether he gets that or not. Once again, ebeanstalk has impressed me with the quality and educational value of their products.
