It’s another busy day with Stanley and friends! Everyone’s favorite helpful hamster is back in two new board books for early learners: Stanley’s Paint Box and Stanley’s Toolbox.

Stanleys Paint Box

What do you do with a bunch of empty cardboard boxes? Make a castle, of course! Stanley brings his paint box to decorate the castle with Mr. Woo, Sophie, and Benjamin. They have red, blue, yellow, and white paint, but where are the other colors? Don’t worry! Stanley will help them mix the paint to make orange, green, purple, and pink. Stanley’s Paint Box is an early introduction to primary and secondary colors, painting tools, and patterns. Fostering creativity and experimentation, this addition to the Stanley series will inspire little artists to mix and create on their own.

Stanleys Toolbox

Stanley is helping Little Woo repair his tree house. They need to build a ladder, fix the roof, and hang some pictures. But Stanley also has a surprise for his friends—what could it be? Perfect for Stanley’s youngest tool-loving fans, Stanley’s Toolbox provides fun opportunities for little helpers to explore the basic features of a house and discover the names and functions of common tools, like twisting a screwdriver, banging a hammer, and squiggling the glue.

Check out the Stanley’s Toolbox activity sheet, perfect for home and in the classroom!
