Learning Resources has celebrated 20 years of supplying the UK market with hands-on learning products.
Guest of honour at a special event held in the firm’s home town of Kings Lynn on May 1st was Rick Woldenberg, chairman of Learning Resources parent company in the US. Employees past and present attended the event, which was hosted by Learning Resources MD, Dennis Blackmore.
The firm’s award winning products in language, maths, science and early childhood education are used by thousands of children every day, with more than 10,000 primary schools supplied in the UK.
Over 100,000 of the Pretend & Play Cash Register (pictured) alone have been sold since its introduction 20 years ago.
"20 years in business is a fantastic landmark by any standards, particulary in the face of some of the most challenging trading conditions in living memory," commented Blackmore, who opened the UK office. "At Learning Resources we have a market leading portfolio of educational toys that are of the highest quality and which are the brand of choice for teachers and parents alike.
"The team we have assembled here in Kings Lynn is outstanding and I am delighted to be able to celebrate this moment in the company’s history with so many friends and colleagues.
"We’re lucky enough to work in a really fun industry that focuses on children, so it was important to us that this was very much a family celebration with all ages welcome."
