Have you heard of Vision Forum? It is a Christian-based company that sells toys, books, CDs, DVDs, and other stuff geared to homeschooling Christian families. They have so many fun things that you might want to use them for your Christmas gift -giving. In fact, the company is having a giveaway of gift certificates. You can enter to win here. I will be frank, I am blogging about them because I am going for the $300 GC!
They have gorgeous toys that promote old-fashioned play. The dolls have outfits based on real, historical women, like Dolley Madison and Sacagawea, to help little girls learn about American history. The paper dolls are based on real American women too. You can also get old-fashioned tea sets, dollhouses, and dolls’ furniture.
They also have toys for girls to promote outdoor adventure, to have fun along with the boys. Things like pogo sticks, scooters, zip lines, and hiking and camping gear. wooden sleds, pop guns, bow and arrow sets, and so much more I can’t list them all!
The CDs and DVDs all promote belief in Biblical teachings. They teach a providential view of history. Here you can listen to some audio samples http://www.visionforum.com/browse/product/stories-of-pilgrims-patriots-pioneers/?cid=1103. You can learn about geological evidence for Noah’s flood and God’s hand in creating dinosaurs. If you order the catalog, if you are like me, you will be drooling over the pages for hours. They have so many fascinating Christian books that you won’t know where to start learning about God’s story and how much he loves us by giving us such a beautiful world and heritage. It is a breath of fresh air to flip through their web site or paper catalog.
