Today is World Children’s Day! At Jaques, we think children are the most important part of our family. That’s why we want to focus on celebrating World Children’s Day 2020. It is not beyond our power to create a world in which all children have access to good education.
Children of school age will learn that a 'force' is a push or a pull and that include Earth's gravity! It’s key for kids to understand how the world works around them. After all, gravity is the pulling force acting between the Earth and any other object, like with our Drop & Race Car Toy. This educational toy will provide them with hours of play and teach them these fundamental principles of the universe.

If somebody asked you what the most popular Halloween decorations are, you would probably include pumpkins near the top of the list!
