That’s the way things happen on The Plinkco Express (w/ free downloadable Christmas wish list print)


     All aboard The Plinkco Express! Welcome! I am so excited to be writing this blog! To start off, I would love to introduce myself!  My name is Jessica Gregory and I am a mom of two little ones; Corban, who will be two in December (on New Years Eve), and Ava who just turned 4 months old (picture of my family below). I’m sure you will be hearing about them a lot on this blog!  Erica and I have been best friends since childhood and I was so excited when she had this idea of doing a blog for her new business, Plink Co. Express Learning


     Our hope is that this blog will be a useful resource and an encouragement to parents and teachers!  If you follow Plink Co. Express Learning on Facebook or instagram, you probably know that Erica values her followers and wants to build a sense of community. She’s not just in the business of selling toys, she wants to be a help and encouragement and build a support system for people who are trying to educate,  children at home, in the classroom, or wherever else it may be! I am totally bought in to that vision and am passionate about it! So give us your feedback! Comments, questions, requests: we want to hear from you! 

     We will feature different items in the store and chat about them but that will not be all this blog is about! I do, however, have to share this adorable picture of my sons face when he was first introduced to his Plink Co. Wooden Wobble Balance Board! (I would apologize for the mess, but if you’re reading this blog, chances are you’ve been around kids enough to understand!)

Here are 3 things you can always expect on our blog: 

1.) Freebies!

    We will always have an activity or something fun for you and/or the kids!  This week we have a Christmas wish list because Christmas is just around the corner and if these aren’t done yet, the time is ticking! (Bonus points if your child writes in a toy from Plink Co.!)

2.) Exclusives! 

          Offers, Promos and Insiders

The exclusive offer in this post is get a pack of 16 of these adorable Christmas gift tags free with any purchase from Plink Co. Express Learning this weekend only! 

Also, this is sort of an insider... if you follow Plink Co.   Express Learning on social media, you may have seen today that these sweet custom wooden name puzzles have just been added to the shop! Erica makes these and she does a fantastic job! (And how cute is that name on display in these pictures? Okay, maybe I'm a little biased about thats.) 



3.) Encouragement to keep doing what you are doing to invest in this next generation! 

     My mother-in-law always says, “The days may be long but the years are short.”  I tell myself this all of the time being a stay at home mom with a baby and a toddler!  The days really do feel long but it is such a privilege that we to get to invest in, teach, love on, and develop these children.  Hang in there because while the days are long, the years are oh, so short! Your work and investment will pay off and the reward will be great! 

     And that, my friends, is the way things happen on Plinkco. Express! Stay tuned next week for a fun Thanksgiving freebie.  Meanwhile, go get out you favorite Christmas mug and sip some coffee or hot cocoa and watch The Polar Express. It’s been a long year and I don’t know about you, but I am beyond ready for the holidays!

Roses are Red, Violets are blue. Colors are fun when learning with you!

How is it almost Valentine’s Day!? Plink Co. recently has released several adorable color sorting Montessori toys including these adorable valentine themed ones so it only seemed appropriate to talk about colors on this blog post! (Warning: Be prepared for picture overload! There are so many different options so I have a lot to show you!) Perhaps you already know that teaching kids things like color sorting and shape sorting actually set fundamentals for mathematics, but this was news to me! This Valentine’s sensory box (pictures above) is absolutely adorable and has a little of both! If you don’t want the full sensory box though, there is a smaller angel peg doll version as well!  And if you don’t want the Valentine theme, that is not the only option!  These sensory boxes are great because there are so many things you can do with them! You and your kids or students can use your imagination and use them in several ways that all encourage learning!  There is the smaller angel peg doll v

The 123’s of the ABC’s

Hello 2021!  I hope you all were able to enjoy the holidays! My kids got some new Plink Co. Toys for Christmas and they have been loving them! Hopefully yours are enjoying theirs as well!  A huge thank you to all of you who completed my survey in my last blog post! I am going to try best I can to grant those wishes in this post along with upcoming posts!  This week is all about the Alphabet puzzle because Corban got one for Christmas and we are loving it!  I am no expert in education but I am a Momma who wants to teach and help my children the best I can, so hopefully if you are looking for more ways to teach the alphabet this will be helpful to you! I realize with Corban just turning 2 years old, it’s probably a little early to make a big push for teaching the alphabet so we are not stressing over it but he has taken an interest in it so we are just trying to incorporate it into a lot of things. It is blowing my mind how well he is doing picking up on it!  So here it is, the 1, 2, 3’s

Learning from Virtually Anything

I’ve been thinking lately while watching my son as he grows and learns, that there is an opportunity for learning in everything. Even in these pictures, We counted to 5 to get him to sit still long enough for a picture for the blog. I’ve been trying to use these little moments to teach him, whether it be a life lesson, or learning things like numbers, colors, and words.  He is so excited about learning his colors right now! We’ve just been using anything and everything to help him learn them but I cannot wait to give him his Plink Co. Color sorting peg dolls for Christmas! He also loves practicing those fine motor skills. My sister has a pair of air pods and one of his favorite things is taking them out of the case and putting them back in. I think these peg dolls will bring hours of entertainment to our house! It’s always a win when learning is fun! This year has been a rollercoaster to say the least!  All of you teachers and homeschooling parents rock!  There have been so many learni
