Fun, Educational Finds from Fatty Brain Toys

There used to be a time when all my kids wanted to do was watch YouTube videos on the iPad or on my phone. It was driving me nuts. Getting them to put the iPad down was a struggle, and a source of stress, I swear.

Thankfully, I found the perfect distractions, and all the credit goes to Mona Ng and her husband, who started Fatty Brain Toys in September 2012, which was only just four years ago.

In that span of time, they have become the exclusive distributor of Mighty Mind, Educational Insights, Learning Resources and Blue Orange Games in the Philippines. Which is great news for us parents, because these are all highly rated toy brands in Amazon, and we no longer need to have to think about ordering online and shipping them in.

Their criteria for choosing which toys to bring? They have to be educational toys that not only stimulate thinking, but also provide enjoyment and interaction. 

Primary Lab Big Science Set for Little Hands. Fosters a curiosity for science by conducting real hands-on experiments with visually appealing science tools and easy-to-follow, beginner science activities.

Super Sorting Pie introduces early Math Concepts such as sorting, counting, number sense, patterning, and beginning addition and subtraction. Develop your preschoolers fine motor skills / pincer grasp too.

Mona, who is also a mom of 3 kids shares that raising 3 kids is hard, especially in disciplining and educating them. She also noticed that a lot of kids nowadays have a hard time focusing, or have ADHD, and realized early on that we parents should engage our kids more in educational toys and not on gadgets and phones.

A mom after my own heart! And that is why, ever since I came across their toys, the kids no longer ask for the iPad, I promise you. 

We love their toys! See what I mean:

Bought this Hot Dots Jr. at the Fatty Brain booth in a Mommy Mundo bazaar. It's a fun way for the kids to learn the alphabet! 

Two years ago, Berry wanted binoculars. I remember seeing this Kidnocular at Fatty Brain Toy's Facebook page so I bought it for her. Now it's Xavi's. Their toys last long enough to be passed on to a younger sibling.

We have like four different Mighty Mind sets, a mix of regular and magnetic ones, and they're the best for travel! It's compact enough to pack inside a backpack or overnight bag, and guarantees hours of thinking and entertainment. Super worth it.

Oh, here's a fun bit of trivia. It was the Mighty Mind toy that inspired them to start their business. According to Mona,  their son had a Mighty Mind toy and was very happy with it. They realized Mighty Mind was not in the market, and educational toys here in the Philippines were very few and far between, so they decided to bring it in. Because who doesn't want to see their kids happy with their toys and getting smarter while at it?

Fatty Brain Toys are available at Rustans Alabang, Makati, Shangri-la, Hobbes and Landes Greenbelt, Rockwell, Fort, Trinoma and Shangri-la, Dash Greenbelt, FundamentalsToy Kingdom Megamall, Aura, North Edsa.
