Fundanoodle heads to Florida!

This month, Max & Alphie went to their first National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Conference. NAEYC is the place to be for teachers and administrators who are dedicated to improving the well-being of young children, with particular focus on the quality of educational and developmental services for all children from birth through age 8. We love our teacher friends, so we packed up our Fundanoodle fun and headed to Florida!
So, what’d teachers have to say about Fundanoodle? From April Whitlock, our Director of Brand Management:

“Early educators responded enthusiastically to Fundanoodle’s bright designs and engaging products. They loved using “action words” like zip, zoom and buzz in teaching letter formation and believed the colorful characters would make learning fun, not work.

The “I Can Pound” kit received rave reviews – many teachers were doing something similar with make-shift materials, and loved the idea of having the foam board, weighted hammer, color pegs and pounding sheets.

The “I Can Build Upper Case Letters” and “I Can Build Lower Case Letters” were also the talk of the conference. Teachers loved the colorful magnetic sticks that students can use to make letters.”

Our Communications Specialist, Adria Courtot, was also listening in on the Fundanoodle buzz:

“One of the most popular items were the Upper and Lower Case Muscle Mover cards – teachers loved the unique and colorful animals on each card, the fun activity for the student to do and the dry erase practice trace on the other side!”

The Bottom Line?
Fundanoodle truly engages all aspects of learning – color and shape identification, gross and fine motor skills with manipulative activity kits, letter formation with colorful kits.  We heard “I want that for my class room!” over and over.
