Great for Little Hands
By Second Time Around
from Salt Lake City, UT
My 2 little boys love this toy! My 5 year old has had so much fun measuring. It's easy for him to use and it's been a great teaching toy. I have been able to teach him about inches, centimeters, meters, and feet. It's great for comparing what is bigger or smaller and taller or shorter. My 15 month old has gotten his little hands on it too and it's even easy for him to play with and has withstood his rough playing. So to me, that makes it very durable since my little one is rough with toys. It's a great educational toy and also great for imaginative play. **I received this product free of charge to review on my blog, Second Time Around. My thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.**
Great for Doers!

The Learning Resources Tape Measure is a must have learning tool for young children. It's perfect for reinforcing early math and science skills. This measure is largely sized but not overly making it ideal for little hands to control and use. The tape measure has a soft-grip handle as well as a manual wind up crank. The crank is great for little ones to practice and master fine motor skills by reeling it back up. The colors are of green, purple, and yellow making making it gender neutral i.e good for either a girl or a boy. The tape displays inches & feet on one side, centimeters on the other! It also features a double-sided tab for easy use. Frustration Free! It's simple, straight forward, and the perfect measuring tape for children who want to measure everything they come across! My daughter age 4 1/2 has gotten a lot of use out of the Simple Tape Measure. We've used it for our homeschooling as well as for pretend play. She learns the best from doing something herself so any sort of manipulative activity. One activity that we did together with the measuring tape was to measure various items around the house. I laminated a sheet of items that could be found around the house, had her locate these items, and then measure them! She had a blast and was learning how to compare, contrast, and estimate! Both my children ages 4 1/2 & 2 1/2 years old had no problems using tape measure. There's been no fear of getting pinched or cut by retraction. The winding it back up came easily to my son and daughter. My kids can safely learn & play imaginatively to their hearts content! This product has been wonderful and it's held up great use after use. This product will be getting ton more use in our home and I can't see my kids excitement of using it faltering any time soon. Highly recommended and perfect for children age 3-6 years old!
Excellent tool all around!

First and foremost, let's talk about the bad news. We did have trouble with the tape measure getting off track in its wheel house. This was easily fixes by unscrewing the toy and re-looping it, and it actually provided yet another lesson for our child, as she got to see exactly how a tape measure works on the inside. Our 3 1/2 year old absolutely loves this thing. Right now we are working on very basic things like longer and shorter, and working on the feet designations (for example: find something that is more than 1 foot long). I can see this product also being useful for teaching fractions later on. Highly recommend!I was provided with this product free on charge and am giving my honest opinion here.
