Ogalala World: A System in Play

"If they can't learn the way we teach, 
then we teach the way they learn."
 - O. Ivar Lovaas
Child Development Expert

Because I have three wonderful kids with different personalities, I am made aware that each child grows and learns at his or her own pace. Children who achieve certain milestones early are not necessarily smarter or healthier than children who achieve them a few months, or even years later. The range of what is normal development is quite wide.

I have one child who started talking at nearly 2, but when that child started, she was already talking in sentences. Yes! Plural... sentences talaga! Super daldal. In fact, she is the chattiest among all my kids now! She graduated from grade school early this year with high academic honors.

With proper nutrition and guidance from us, our kids will achieve their own milestones at the right time because not all kids develop at the same time. The wide development range is one reason that it is important to pay attention to each child’s abilities and to plan activities that match and expand those abilities.

It is with that in mind that Ogalala is formed.

Ogalala is a multi-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. Taking its cue from play and parenting insights that integrate learning to play, Ogalala’s Play and Learn System develops the physical, intellectual, social, and emotional skills of a child from birth to 12 years.

A few weeks ago, I was invited to attend an exclusive Child Development Workshop at the Ogalala Flagship store at the East Wing of Edsa Shangrila Plaza Mall. 
I brought B along with me, and she enjoyed using the Crayola window markers as she designed her own window display about what makes school so enjoyable for her.

Ogalala's System in Play integrates fun into learning as Ogalala carefully selects the world’s top branded educational tools from CrayolaMelissa & DougArtecAnimal PlanetDiscovery Kids, and now The Leaning Journey, to contribute to the child’s physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development.

OgalalaWorld is here to help parents identify milestones and tools that parents can use to adapt to our own parenting style and our kids way of learning. Did you know that there are three types of learners? The Auditory learners, Visual learners and Tactile learners.

Find out what type of learner your child is by signing up for the Ogalala Child Development workshop. Just send your full name, Child's name , Child's birth date and mobile number to

My budding scientist fell in love with the hands-on do-it-yourself science kits from Artec. What's great is that each kit also comes with a study guide that reinforces what they learned in each activity.

My 2 youngest kids had so much fun building this planetary kit that they can';t wait for our next visit to Ogalala World.


Crayola is everyone's favorite! Their markers, paints, crayons and watercolors are all proven safe and child-friendly.
