BambinoLUK Giveaway and Review

We love having our little ones in the room while we read aloud, study and discuss whatever we are studying in school because they pick up so much information and this allows them to be part of our family discussion.   (Colby {4} recently explained to me that it’s hard to tell what dinosaurs really looked like because we can only see their bones.)  To make this easier, I appreciate having a variety of quiet activities to occupy them so they don’t get too loud or distracting.

BambinoLUK is a quiet, hands-on, self correcting learning activity for children ages 3-5.   The bambinoLUK system consists of a controller and a variety of sets of learning books.  Each set of books has several exercises that focus on specific skill development like critical thinking, concentration and visual perception.

To start the child puts the bambinoLUK controller on the page of the activity book that they wish to work and then they place the tiles on the squares with the corresponding picture ‘questions’.  To play the child picks up a tile to reveal the picture ‘question’ and places the tile on the picture ‘answer’ to that ‘question’.  When the activity is complete the child closes the controller and turns it over to see if the pattern they created on the back matches the ‘answer key’ pattern.

We’ve had a few of these matching type activities, but none of them have been as easy for our preschoolers to work with as BambinoLUK.  It  is extremely well-designed and well-constructed  with many valuable  features.

High quality, durable construction –  The books seem to be made of card stock and stand up very well to little hands.   The controller and tiles are thick and sturdy, perfectly suited to rough preschoolers.

No reading required – The directions for each activity are illustrated with pictures and each activity is self-correcting by checking the pattern created with the controller with the pattern printed in the activity book.

Progressively difficult activities – This allows children to learn as the progress through each book and challenges them gradually.

Challenging activities – I was pleasantly surprised with the difficulty of some of the activities. My active,  always-on-the-move 4 year old boy spent more than 45 minutes completely involved and just wanted to keep going.  (He didn’t even want to stop to use the bathroom.)

Variety of ways to play – In the bambinoLUK parent teacher guide there are suggestions for different ways to play including directions for creating your own bambinoLUK activities with templates and downloads on the Beyond 123 website.

Self correcting – Each page displays an answer key in the form of a pattern that will be created on the backside of the tiles if the child works the activity correctly.

Even though the bambinoLUK system is recommended for children ages 3-5, we found that some of our older children enjoyed working through the activity books.

Cons:

  • Younger children will need some supervision and instruction as they learn to use the controller and  as some of the challenging activities are, well, challenging.

Honestly, that’s it.   The bambinoLUK definitely 2 thumbs up from our house!

Timberdoodle has a wide variety of  products and games that help develop thinking skills for a children of all ages.

    I like the Duplo fire house I saw there and the Duplo farm. I had a Duplo farm growing up and really loved it although it doesn’t look like they have my favorite part anymore – a conveyor belt sort of thing you could put blocks on with a little crank you turned to get the blocks up into the barn 🙂

    I like so many things from TimberDoodle. I have been acquainted with them for at least 10 years. I could really use the Hugg a Globe, ours got a hole. Boo Hoo.

    Hi Kimberly,

    We are in our 4th year of MFW (8th year of homeschooling). Currently our children are just about a year behind yours… 7th, 5th, 3rd, 1st, K, plus two little ones.

    The multi-level studies (Bible, History, Science) are written for 2nd-8th grade. Some MFW years offer a 2nd/3rd grade supplement package. In 7th grade, students break away from the family’s Science studies to do their own Science, mostly independently, but they continue with the rest of the family studies through 8th grade. Starting in high school, MFW has the kids “jump off” of the multi-level cycle and do most of their work independently. We obviously haven’t gotten that far, but we’re pleased so far and find the our oldest’s independent work to be very reasonable for this age. Challenging, but not too difficult. For K & 1st grade, we do not do a separate core program as MFW suggests. Instead, we keep the little kids in same room for blanket time while we study Bible, History and Science. It isn’t technically on their level, but they absorb a lot nonetheless.

    I do find the book basket resources to enrich the studies so much, and I’m glad that we don’t have to purchase all the books, so we use our library heavily. However, we have a fantastic library system that allows us to order books through interlibrary loan, emails me as the books come in, allows me to renew them online, and even an email reminder a few days before the books are due! Still, we’ve had our share of overdues. The worst last year was when I didn’t realize that the daily fine was raised from a dime to a quarter. I went to the library expecting to pay $12, and instead was charged $30! I suddenly became very diligent about returning books after that!

    I must also put a plug here for how awesome the Bible studies are. This year, our children are memorizing the entire book of James. The way MFW breaks up the passages makes it very do-able, and they also study James at length using a Kay Arthur Bible Study for kids. Additionally, MFW ties the Bible, History and Science together. Can you tell I really love this program? The library might be a problem; however, MFW makes life so much easier for Mom in every other respect, that you might have more time to devote to the care of library books. 😉

    I’m happy to answer any other questions you might have. Your blog has been an inspiration to me. 🙂

    God bless,
    Michelle
