Learning Resources 'Where Is Howie's Owie?' Review/Giveaway

As parents we start teaching our kids about different body parts while they are still very young. We try books, songs and shows on te TV. My kids know their body parts, but our little four year old is still learning the parts that aren't usually in songs like; elbows, wrists, ankles, forearms and so on. As a mom I love to find fun methods for my kids to learn. Learning Resource has sent me another yet amazing item, 'Where Is Howie's Owie?,' which offers everything you need to teach your little ones those tricky body parts.

When I received the 'Where Is Howie's Owie?' I knew right away that my kids would have so much fun playing with this and also learn at the same time. Since my little girl knows all of her body parts except a few like forearm or shin I knew this would be good for her. My little boy also knows all of his main body parts except when it comes to his elbows, wrists or ankles. I could tell from the start that this would really help him achieve the next level in learning body parts.


The set up of 'Where Is Howie's Owie?' was very easy. All I had to do was pop open the stand and set it on the floor, then pop out the magnet bandages. Also, required is a dry erase marker and cloth which aren't included but are common enough to not be an annoyance.


The image of Howie is very kid friendly for young kids. I love how on one side the board is magnetic so the magnetic bandages stick to the board with ease. They do connect very well, the bandages don't slide down, which I have seen with other magnetic toys. On this side you can ask your kids different questions like "Howie, got hurt on his chin. Where is his chin at?" You can also tell them to use a certain color bandage, this allows them to practice their colors as well.


On the other side it is not magnetic but, you can use a dry erase marker on it. There are lines down both sides that you can write on and put a line to the spot you are talking about. This side is really nice to help teach the body parts without playing a game. I found this side to be very helpful with my eight year old. I would ask here where the shoulder was and have her write it on a line and draw a line to it. 


There are several different ways you can have your kids interact with 'Where Is Howie's Owie?'. I am sure your family will find this product as much fun as our family did.
Where to purchase: Right from their website and prices will vary depending on what you will purchase. You are able to purchase from Amazon.
