    Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree with Safari Ltd®

    If you celebrate Christmas in your home, decorating the tree can be one of the most fun bonding activities your family does all year. But did you ever think that it could also be educational?

    While decorating the tree you can teach your child concepts like symmetry and balance. You can also discuss weight, and how heavier ornaments make the pine needles sag lower than lighter ornaments do. Other concepts to teach are electricity and fire, and how it is dangerous to leave the tree on at night. Another idea is to teach biology by explaining that you have to water the tree in order for it not to go dry.

    You can also get very creative by making your own ornaments, or even turn your child’s toys into ornaments by crafting with some string. We love our new Safari Ltd® Christmas Designer TOOB® figures that double as ornaments – and this is just one example!

    Do you have a particularly fond memory of decorating your holiday tree?

    Teaching your Child Tolerance

    While the classic school subjects are necessary, it is crucial to remember that social education is just as important – if not more. Every school has bullies, but as a parent it is your job to make sure your son or daughter isn’t one of them. One hot issue is discrimination, and a great way to teach your child to not discriminate against other races and ethnicities is through Safari Ltd® toys.

    This might seem like a stretch at first, but using animals and toys is an excellent way to illustrate the point that although people are different, it doesn’t make them any less human. To teach this lesson, you first need to gather several replicas that are the same animal species but in different families within that species. For example, you can compare our Wildlife Wonders™ Asian Elephant and Wildlife Wonders™ African Elephant, Wild Safari® White Bengal Tiger and Wild Safari® Bengal Tiger, Wildlife Wonders™ Siberian Tiger and Wildlife Wonders™ White Siberian Tiger, Wild Safari® Bactrian Camel and Wild Safari® Dromedary Camel, any of our Wild Safari® Sealife Penguins, any of our Winners Circle Horses, and the list goes on.

    Whichever two or more replicas you choose (we recommend you use a couple different species as examples) you can show that both animals are beautiful and unique in their own way, but a tiger is still a tiger and a penguin a penguin. You can then talk about how different many of your friends look, how you are blonde but your husband is brunette, how your best friend is Asian and her husband is French, but you all are still human. Show how neither of the animals is better than the other – they are just different. You can even elaborate how great it is that they are different because it adds so much more beauty to the world.

    How have you taught your children the importance of accepting others? Tell us about it on Facebook and Twitter!

    Back-to-School Play

    With the start of school right around the corner, kids will be back to set schedules and structure. What about unstructured play? After a day full of learning and structure, after-school and weekend play are essential outlets for your children to relax. To cater to the most eccentric mind, we have created a line of Fairy Fantasy Figures.

           

    Perfect for after-school, weekend or sleepover playtime, Fairy Figures come in a variety of colors and companion fantasy animals. We also carry a Fairy Fantasies Fairy Pony to accommodate all Fairy Figures and the Fairy Fantasies Tea Party Set, which is great for play dates.

    Importance of Educational Toys

    For the last 30 years, our company, Safari Ltd. has taken pride in creating quality replicas that are inspired by nature. Our company was first inspired by a themed deck of cards of endangered species. Later, we would sign a license agreement with the Carnegie Museum of Natural History that allowed us to produce authentic, scale-model dinosaur figures with the collaboration of their paleontologists.

            

    It is our dedication to authenticity and education that sets our replicas apart in the industry. Each purchase of our products has accompanying educational information that can be found on our website. Our educational information section of our website has allowed us to extend the reach to our customers by being available in five different languages anywhere there is Internet access available. Whether you are a parent, educator, or collector we are happy to provide this service to help you learn more about your replicas.

    Building models and dioramas for class projects are a great way for children to learn about a particular subject in a “hands on” manner.  Our Wild Safari® line is the perfect accessory to spice up your child’s next school project, and is also a great way for children to have fun outside the classroom once their diorama is completed. 

               

                   

                                         

    With the help of our Wild Safari® series, a child can take their next art or science class project from boring and dreary, to exciting and lively, with one-of-a-kind, hand-painted, educational models.

    Kicking off the Summer with Memorial Day Weekend

    Memorial Day celebrations have been an American tradition since 1868, and today many of us throw parties and barbecues, combining a serious occasion with a get together of close friends and family. It’s a day to commemorate and catch up with loved ones – hosting the party should not be stressful. To ensure a day of rest and relaxation, plan ahead. How will you keep the kids occupied so the parents can enjoy the party?

                                               

                                   

    Children enjoy playing with one another, but it’s smart to plan structured activities. If you’re expecting a lot of kids then plan a scavenger hunt in the backyard. Using prizes that the children will be able to play with once the scavenger hunt is over will occupy them for hours. Our Safariology series is economical, educational, and encourages outdoor adventure and play. Plus, prizes will ensure a fun environment for the children and a stress-free party for the parents.
