Assorted letters A-Z. Plastic beads measure approximately 1cm with a lacing hole. Use these with spaghetti lacing string (sold separately) is a great wall to develop hand division and intrinsic hand muscle development. A great way to work on letter recognition or on spelling words while also developing, bilateral coordination, hand and visual motor skills.
WARNING: Choking Hazard. Unsuitable for children under 3 years due to small parts.
Set of 96 bears, three different sizes and four different colors. The 'bear family' is also related by weight. 2 baby bears equal 1 mother bear. 1 mother plus 1 baby bear equal 1 father bear and 3 baby bears equal 1 father bear.
Useful tools for concept and language development, visual perceptual skill and sequencing skill development.
Use the bears together with zoo sticks to further hand development.
Fun way to explore a range of cognitive, language and visual perceptual concepts - colors, sorting, counting, categorizing etc. together with plenty of imaginative play opportunities.
6 different farm animals in 6 colours, 108 pieces
WARNING: Unsuitable for children under 3 years. Use under adult supervision.
Insert foam dart into the croc's mouth and squeeze. The harder you squeeze, the farther the dart will fly! Great opportunity to develop proprioceptive awareness in the hand, with the distance the dart flies giving kids a clear visual example of the amount of pressure they are using. Add a target, like a container or a shape on a wall and you can add directionality to this activity which means you can also develop visual motor skills and since the use of this little guy requires you to hold the arm away from the body you can add shoulder stability development into the mix.
WARNING: Unsuitable for children under 3 years due to small parts. Manufacturer recommends for ages 5 years plus.
Do not aim at people or animals. Do not substitute the foam darts with any other projectile.
Welcome to Crossroads, the road building puzzle for smart drivers young and old!
The Goal: Build each road layout challenge so the front and rear halves of each vehicle are colour-matched; yellow-to-yellow (sedan), red-to-red (coupe), blue-to-blue (SUV), and green-to green (pickup).
Challenges: The Challenge Booklet illustrates 30 different road layouts you must build, using selections from the 24 puzzle pieces. For each challenge (except number 30) one or two puzzle pieces are located to help you get started.
Solutions: If your brain hits a roadblock, don't call the Highway Patrol. The solution to each challenge is provided.
So what are you waiting for? Start building! Provides opportunities for lateral thinking, problem solving and sequencing as well as being compact ready for use in small spaces such as in the car or caravan, for a rainy day at home or for a table top activity in school or after school care.

A delightful wooden puzzle which starts with 24 challenges that require the child to copy and create the pictures using the ten colourful blocks. The puzzles then become harder with 24 challenges that illustrates just the silhouette of the image which needs to be built, therefore requiring a more advanced level of perception and recognition from the player.
These new range of early logical thinking toys provides the opportunity for developing concentration, sequencing, visual and spatial perception and problem solving all within a 3 dimensional environment. In the trend of moving play towards 2 dimensional experiences - puzzles, books and screens - the need to have greater opportunities for 3 dimensional play is even more important. It provides better learning opportunities visually, to develop sequencing, and motor planning, all key skills necessary to prepare the brain to learn the literacy and numeracy skills children are presented with in early school years.
Manufacturer recommends for ages 2 - 5 years.
Start blowing into the terrific T-Rex and when the blades are turning fast enough the copter will take off and fly! Great blow toy to encourage sustained long blowing, while also then allowing for visual tracking of the copter blade.

How many doughnuts can you stack on the Doughnut Tower? Roll the dice to choose your doughnut and then use the tongs to stack it up on the growing doughnut tower. On every turn it becomes more wiggly-wobbly! The player stacking the most doughnuts before it falls wins the game.
That's the way the board game is played but this one provides so much more. Use it in imaginative play running a doughnut shop or serving your friends, families or teddies afternoon tea. In addition this game allows for the development of a range of underlying motor skills necessary for fine motor tasks such as handwriting and doing up buttons. Shoulder stability is developed while reaching out away from the body to place the doughnuts, wrist stability, division of the two sides of the hand and thumb/index web space stability are developed while using the tongs and visual motor skills developed while coordinating the hands and eyes to place the doughnuts.
For 2 or more players (or solo play) aged 4 years and over.
