Review of Magic Moves Wand

We were sent the Magic Moves Wand from Learning Resources.

Learning Resources is a company I love, both as a parent and as a teacher. In my opinion their products are top quality and reasonably priced.

Magic Moves is an active, high energy game designed to develop gross motor skills, creative expression and listening skills.

Ben was very excited to have a go. The wand is very easy to use. There is a play button and a repeat button and two volume levels.

The green play button has 90 different commands, with accompanying tune and light show.
Commands such as, 'dive like a dolphin' and 'growl like a wolf' give children an opportunity to tap into their creative side and when playing it with older sisters or mums, like we did, it becomes really good fun, to see who can listen and follow instructions with lots of expression.

The wand helps to develop language skills and familiarity of new words, such as strut, slither, glide and stomp. Ben needed help with these words, but older children should be fine. The wand is aged 3+ bye Ben is 3 and half so it is ideal for his age and up.

The only downside to this wand is the fact that the voice (Kelly Miyahara) is American and can be a bit hard for little ones to understand, even I struggled with some of the commands as to what she was saying.

You can visit the Learning Resources website here and have a look at all the lovely things they have no offer.
