Celebrating British Science Week with Learning Resources UK

British Science Week 2020 takes place between 6th – 15th March. During these 10 days, we’re encouraged to join in with the celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths.

We were sent a bundle of educational toys in association with Learning Resources UK that are perfect for any budding young scientists! Learning Resources UK design and produce lots of hands-on educational games and toys that are really good, many are in the STEM realm. STEM toys are Science, Technology, Engineering and Math based toys geared towards curiosity, learning and education.

I absolutely love finding toys and games that promote learning, I find it great when they help make learning fun. My three love to be outdoors so I was particularly interested in trying out the GeoSafari Jr Kidnoculars Extreme.

GeoSafari JR Kidnoculars Extreme.

These 3X no-focus binoculars were a bit hit in my house. As you probably already know we’re always out and about, exploring nature, new places and heading out on new adventures. I think these fab binoculars will be coming with us all the time now.

What I liked was how sturdy and durable they seemed, great for toddlers. I didn’t have to worry about any of my children being too heavy handed with them. What made them different that other binoculars was, if you pop some batteries in you could also hear what’s around you as well as see it. The built in microphone amplifies the nature around you which really impressed the kids.

We really liked this product. I also loved the minimal packaging they came in. No plastic, just in a cardboard box. Plus there was no assembly either which made it simple for me.

GeoSafari JR My First Telescope.

This focus-free telescope is perfect for a beginner who wants to explore the sky. Made especially for little hands, the telescope was so easy to assemble, I was extremely surprised. I had it out of the box and quickly put up ready to use. The kids were desperate to see the moon. There’s a comfy two-eye goggle eyepiece and nose cutout guides making it easier to keep your child’s eyes positioned.

After a couple of turns to get used to it, the kids had lots of fun with this telescope. We plan on talking to our caravan next weekend which is by the sea. The kids hope to look out to sea at boats and land as well as the moon.

This was a great product, perfect gift for any little one who loves to star gaze!

Stems: The Flexible 3D Toy Maker.

These versatile construction toys are so much fun, never mind the children, I couldn’t get enough. The pack we were sent container 20 pieces and a guide with ideas on of what you could make. However the possibilities are endless, there’s no limits to this building fun!

These flexible construction toys are a fun way of problem solving, perfect for fine motor skills and a great way to understand 3D shapes.


In exchange for an honest review we were kindly gifted this bundle of toys so we can celebrate British Science Week. We’d love to know how you celebrate via our socials – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
