We’re the toy cash registers that help children learn to count. We’re the alphabet puzzle blocks that inspire a love of reading. We’re the coding mouse that schools use to prepare students for tomorrow. We are Learning Resources – Learning is where we play and our mission is to help children love to learn.
Learning Resources® Inc was founded in 1984 in Chicago, Illinois, USA. 10 years later, in 1994, our learning journey began as Managing Director Dennis Blackmore founded Learning Resources Ltd. Located in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, our purpose was to serve the UK, European markets, the Middle East, Africa and India.
Over many years the company continued to grow and, in 2006, Learning Resources acquired Educational Insights, based in Los Angeles, California.
Our heritage and the trusted relationships we have built over the years are the cornerstone of our success, enabling us to continually evolve as our business continues to grow, meeting the needs of teachers, parents and other mentors.
For over 30 years we’ve been the leader in educational toys and games, with more than 1,000 products sold in over 80 countries. Our toys are designed to help children build key educational skills… and get ready to take on the world!
Our versatile products include play and learning activity sets, manipulatives and games that build foundational skills in all subject areas through exploration, creativity, imagination and fun. In addition, we offer simple technology products and teacher resources to support the delivery of education.
