Toyology Toys: Tell us a little about yourself.
Erin Hulslander: I am a mom to Brendan and Emma, and a wife to Nick. Brendan will be 3 in June and Emma just turned 6 months. We live in Shelby Township, Michigan. We love to be outside and going to the Zoo is a weekly activity for us. Being creative and learning are our priorities when it comes to our children so arts and crafts are a huge deal around here and making up fun games to play to get us to learn.
Toyology Toys: What is your occupation?
Erin: I have my teaching degree, but being a stay at home mom is what I do full time.
Toyology Toys: Why are you interested in contributing to Toyology Toys?
Erin: I love Toyology Toys and the products they bring to their stores. I like that their toys engage learning while having fun and also the use of imagination. Becoming a contributor allows me to rave about their products even more so then I already do.
Toyology Toys: What do you love about toys?
Erin: Toys are great for kids to be able to use their imagination. Play is a crucial role in a child’s development. Toys allow a child to play with their imagination while also learning. Learning is a huge part of why we play in my house. Whether it’s learning the ABC’s while playing with our letter popsicles, or counting cars. It doesn’t matter what toy we are playing with at the moment, learning is going on.
Toyology Toys: What does the “power of play” mean to you?
Erin: The “power of play” to me means that while children simply play, they are also learning. As they play they learn important skills for their futures.
Toyology Toys: What specific topics would you like to contribute to Toyology Toys and the Power of Play?
Erin: As a contributor I would like to contribute my background of teaching into learning while playing. As a mom of a toddler we are continuously learning new things and I have found different ways to play while we learn. I would like to be able to show others these ideas too.
