The Swurfer – The Natural Balance Board


Swurfer SwingMove over tire swing, there’s a new “King of the Trees!”  Ever wish you could surf the air?  The Swurfer swing is designed for swinging through the air like a surfer on the waves.  This handcrafted, American made swing is not only made from durable hard rock maple, but it can support up to 250lbs and includes plenty of high strength rope that is UV and mildew resistant! It’s great for exercising or just relaxing in the trees in either a sitting or standing position.  The adjustable handles allow for any height Swurfer.
This brand new edition to Learning Express is sure to be a hit. Think of it as a Spooner Board that you can swing on.

Janod Toys

official-janod-logoOne of our newest (and best) vendors of 2014 is a French company called Janod. We tested a few of their products and immediately  knew they were for us. These classic style toys are sleek, elegant and fun.  The Janod range is filled with delightful wooden, eco-friendly and educational toys for babies, toddlers and older kids. From puzzles and blocks to trains, and magnetic playsets, you’ll find everything you need to make playtime stylish, unique and fun for your little ones.


One of my favorite toys from Janod is the magnetic rocket ship.  For little ones 18 months and up, this rocket made from wood, and comes apart into 5 pieces, so not only is it a fun toy rocket ship, but it’s a great 3D toddler puzzle.

Janod Princess Wall Stickers
Another fantastic toy that will give your child hours of playtime is the princess magnetic wall castle. The castle sticks to the wall and adds a great accent to the room. It comes with 30 reusable stickers to inspire storybook creativity.

Magnetibooks are probably one of the coolest lines from Janod. There’s a wide range of themes for boys and girls. Not only do kid get to be creative, but toys like the Alphabet Magnetibook allow kids to have fun with letters. The Magnetibooks are self contained for easy storage. Check out the video below of Magnetibooks, and hurry in to Learning Express to check out this great line of toys!
