Exploring Three-dimensions: Prismland Playset An Educational Toy

Today’s guest post is from my sister Brandy. She is a mom of two; a busy preschooler who keeps her on her feet and a sweet toddler. Brandy is a full-time working mom using her ECE degree working with autistic children and their families. She supports them and touching their lives in a positive way. I look forward to sharing Brandy’s in-depth reviews and mama knowledge here on inRdream.com. 


The Prismland Playset comes in a Prismland carrying bag and includes all 5 Prismpals as well as their corresponding character-specific edition of the Hey! Prismland booklet series.

As a mom of two children under 3, I am always looking for educational activities or toys for my kids that are also fun and unique. I also value items that can grow with my children as their developmental needs change.

Prismland Playset met my “mom standards” but the real test was if they would meet my kids’ standards!”

When I introduced my children to the Prismland Playset, their five senses kicked into play right away. The soft Prismland carrying bag is visually pleasing with a mute canvas background and a hint of colour and design that makes it child-friendly. The soft carrying bag intrigued my children to want to explore their curiosity further and see what was inside.

When they opened the bag, there were five adorable Prismpals that were visually pleasing to the eye which drew my children in to explore them further through touch. The material of the Prismpals is inviting for little ones; soft, plush and easy to pick up. Of course this also made it super fun to throw them too 😉

Each Prismpal comes with a corresponding character book that takes each three-dimensional shape on a journey. Although the illustrations are playful, I found the dialogue of the stories more suited for older children. However, a few of the stories end with a “look-alike” section which shows the geometric shape in various forms. I found this more fitting to my son as he enjoys noticing similarities and differences in various objects.

“Counting is big in our house right now so of course it was fun to count the sides and corners of the different shapes. When we got to “Spherrison” the sphere, he pointed out to me that after a couple of good spins that there are no corners or sides.”

We also enjoyed a game of catch with each character which is always a hit with my little ones. You could expand a regular game of catch further with more of an educational component depending on your child’s age. It is safe to say Prismland met my kids’ standards by evoking their senses and offering a playful alternative to the “standard” educational toys we have at home.

The Prismland Playset also has free downloadable worksheets, colouring pages and educational lesson plans for educators.

“I see the Prismland Playset coming in handy as my children begin to explore other 3D geometry at school. It is a learning tool that can expand and grow with your child whether they are just starting to learn about 3D shapes or something a little more intricate such angles, depth, or radius.”
