Mega markers- the widest washable markers known on the market. Made with sink proof tips specially designed and virtually indestructible and thick barrels for comfortable grip and easy control in young hands. The width helps support children as they begin to develop the ability to use the thumb and first two fingers to control the marker (as opposed to the whole hand) together with supporting the thumb/index web space open to help build the muscles stability which is needed in later development to create rounded fast movements when writing. Perfect for children just beginning to explore the world of drawing or for those who have low muscle tone in their hands and so require some additional support while they develop their muscle control.
Non-toxic, water-based washable ink.
Left the lid off overnight - simply add a tiny amount of water to the bottom of the lid and stand the marker upright to restore.
Manufacturer recommends unsuitable for children under 3 years.
Let your imagination take flight with a fantastically satisfying new colouring book concept. Mosaics of angles, curves and patterns come alive in each of these original designs. You explore their potential by choosing how to colour each shape. Experiment with markers, crayons, pencils or pastels, or mix and match tools, intensities and techniques for marvellous effects.
The small spaces encourage the use of the intrinsic hand muscles to colour, the same muscles necessary for handwriting. These books also give interesting colouring opportunities for older children.
Pattern Play will help to develop hand/eye co-ordination and fine motor skills whilst placing the small coloured cubes in the grid to create great pictures using their imagination or one of the 22 illustrations in the picture book proviced.
Includes over 490 pieces all contained in a storage case with sections for individual colours. Pattern Play can also be used with our Fish Sticks or Easy Grip Tweezers.

There is much ado in the penguin colony. The iceberg shakes with all the commotion. All the penguins want a place on the iceberg, but only those who can keep their balance can avoid the icy water below!
Steady hands and careful planning are needed to balance all your penguins on the slippery iceberg. If you succeed before the other players, you win the game but if the penguins fall, you must start all over again. The need to work with the hand/arm away from the body, while keeping a steady hand can help in your program to develop children's shoulder, forearm and wrist stability. Add a pair of tweezers to increase the motor planning challenge while also develop thumb/index web space stability and hand division.
Manufacturer recommends for ages 5 years and over for 1-6 players and as with any board game provides an opening for the development of social skills turn taking.
WARNING: Choking hazard. Manufacturer recommends unsuitable for children under 3 years due to small parts. Use under adult supervision.

Perplexus is the can't-put-it-down challenge! Flip, twist and spin Perplexus to move the ball along the numbered path working with and against gravity. It's fun for the whole family with over 100 barriers to master.
Have YOU got the skills?
The aim: To get the shiny ball through all stages of the maze to get to the end. There are two main games. 1. Try to get from the start to the end in one go without falling off the maze or getting so frustrated you throw it out of the window or bounce it off someone else's head (made out of a soft plastic just in case you do). 2. Another game is to do a time trial with your friends to see who can do it all in the fastest time and get the maze record.
Movements need to be smooth and planned and trial and error is the way to develop skills - developing motor planning and shoulder stability as you work the challenge.
Blow the foam darts through the shooter to stick onto a window, mirror or hard surface. Make up a target and stick onto the opposite side of a window or glass door.
Engaging way to develop core stability and oral motor skills through the seal and power blow necessary to use this device, together with shoulder stability, visual motor and motor planning skills involved in the targeting and upper limb positioning. Great addition to home or the clinic with the hard plastic tube of the blow tube being easy to clean between clients.

Mountains of fun for young and old, Pop N Catch is excellent for improving hand-eye coordination. Place the ping pong like ball into the basket, pull the trigger, and watch as the ball catapults out.
The natural throw and catch action assists in the development of eye hand coordination, the action of holding and aiming away from the body assists in the development of shoulder stability and the trigger mechanism, which needs to be operated against some resistance helps to develop thumb stability. Children can just use it by themselves for the fun of bursting the balls around, develop motor planning and eye hand coordination skills further by aiming for a target or have one child send the ball off while another tries to catch it.
Made of long-lasting, non-marking polymers. Includes one ball and two launchers.
