Lauri Pegboard & Peg Stackers #GIVEAWAY


Today we start giveaway #2 of three great giveaways from 4Knowledge-4Fun!  Did you catch our Kimmidolls giveaway last week?


This week's toy is for the preschoolers in your life!  We received the large pegboard and 100 tall stacker pegs for review.  The pegboard also comes in a smaller size for more portable fun, and you can get just 50 pegs to go with that board.


We tried to get Luke, who has special needs, to hold onto a peg, but he was unable to.


So Eli made a light saber and held it in Luke's hand.


Eli then decided these were pretty fun looking, and proceeded to build a tower.


A very tall tower, all the way up to the ceiling!  The age recommendation for these toys is 2 and up, and we got plenty of playtime from the "and up" crowd in our house!


Eli and Jack used the pegs and pegboard to play their own connect four version of tic tac toe.


Eli also said they could be used to play checkers.


Of course, they're great for teaching colors, counting, sorting, and patterns to preschoolers, as well.


Or for creating pixelated images, like Eli's smiley face.


Katie and Brayden helped Eli fill the entire board with all 100 pegs!


Brayden's favorite color is orange, so he's gathering all the orange pegs to put in.

Even after the camera was put away, the pegboard and peg stackers have continued to be a favorite around our house.  The kids like them because they're fun to play with.  I like seeing the Lauri brand name that I've come to appreciate stands for quality in their great puzzles.


Who's ready to win your own pegboard and stacker from 4Knowledge-4Fun??  Remember, these will ship after Christmas.  US only, please.

  1. I do most of my holiday shopping online. It's the only way I can keep the gifts from the kids seeing because they're always with me!

    1. I'm the same way. I pretty much dread going out even for regular shopping this time of year. Thank goodness for Amazon, lol.

  16. Crowded stores, difficult parking, getting everyone in and out of the car, finding restrooms, making sure I do not lose or forget anything, etc. That is why I shop online whenever possible.

    1. I've gotten to the point where I lean more toward online shopping all through the year, so the thought of braving the Christmas crowds is even harder to psych myself into.
