I first learned about the Ogalala System in Play last year when they invited me to their workshop. You can read about it here.

Last June 2, 2015, they invited me again for another Child Development Workshop, this time at their new store at the Level 4, East Wing, Shangri-la Plaza Mall.


Ogalala is a branded System in Play developed by Internationale Globale Marques Inc. (IGM), distributor, manufacturer, and licensee of leading children’s global brands for the past 30 years.  They believe that each child is unique and that they learn at his or her own pace. Moreover, they believe that children learn best through play. To learn more about this, do watch  this video below.


Ogalala’s Play and Learn System develops the physical, intellectual, social, and emotional skills of a child from birth to 12 years through the best brands of educational toys and materials that cater to a child’s learning style. A child can either be an Auditory, Visual or Kinesthetic (Tactile) learner.

At last week’s workshop, the brand in focus was Crayola. I was really excited about it because our Ziggy is very much into drawing and just about anything related to arts and crafts.

Upon entering the Ogalala shop, Ziggy was already invited to put washable Crayola paint on his hand so that he can make his mark on this wall.

The Ogalala team prepared a Crayola arts and crafts area especially for the kids and Ziggy, of course, eagerly joined in the fun.


I think all the kids went crazy upon seeing all the Crayola products at their disposal.


I know I went crazy just looking at this wall full of Crayola products. They have so many kinds such as regular crayons, washable crayons, washable markers, twistable colored pencils, fabric markers, glue sticks, finger paint, art kits and LOTS more!


Ziggy and I, together with the other moms and kids, had so much fun with an activity that had us drawing on the display window. Yup, we drew on the window! We used window crayons and washable markers so it’s all good. No need to worry!


During the workshop, we learned that parents can help develop their child’s different skills using certain toys that are best for their learning style. This is really important so that we know what types of materials will really work best for our kids. This way, we can be sure that they will really learn their lessons and have fun at the same time. No money wasted on our part too!


Ogalala features many different brands aside from Crayola such as EMCO, Animal Planet, Melissa & Doug, Baby Einstein, Discovery Kids, The Learning Journey, Trixy & Troy, ArTec, Oops, Dino Horizons, and Haba.




If you want a sneak peek of which ones will work best for your child, check out this sample table. Just match the age of your child with their learning style.


I know that Ziggy is a kinesthetic learner, which means he learns best by experiencing things so what he needs are educational activities. From the table above, you can already see which types of toys are recommended for a kinesthetic learner like him who’s 4 years old. The toys on the list are obviously very hands-on activities that Ziggy will surely enjoy. It just makes picking toys easier for parents like me.

It’s no wonder then why Ogalala chose to give Ziggy this big pack of Emco blocks to take home. He loves blocks! He can play with them all day, every day. What’s great is that he really loves to create so many different things with blocks. It really helps develop his physical and intellectual skills. This definitely made him so happy. He couldn’t wait to go home and play with it.


And, so we did. Look how happy he is!


You can discover more toys and learning materials for your kids over at the Ogalala store so check them out soon. Even though the school year has started and your kids already learn a lot in school, these toys will support those learnings. At the same time, these toys will give them something great to do once the rainy season starts!
