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.
Choose 1 of 48 challenges. Arrange the pieces to replicate the image shown in the challenge - all playing pieces must be used, and you are only allowed to stack them 2 layers high.
Each challenge has 2 sides: the easier side shows each layer, the opposite side shows those 2 layers combined into one image.
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 3 - 6 years.
Pastels are a beautiful medium for children to explore - bright, deep colours with the pressure used to draw with them determining the strength of the colour, helping children to grade the pressure they use (proprioception) with visual feedback from the medium they are using. Unfortunately most pastels are thin and stain clothes however these mega size oil pastels are ideal for young artists as they use washable pigments to avoid any unwanted stains.
Large size (twice the size of large oil pastels) provides faster colouring, easy grip, extra value and durability. High pigment quality and concentration give vibrant and strong colours on paper with soft, creamy binders to give a smooth lay-down of colour. Use with a brush can also create fun watercolour effects.
Pastels are individually wrapped to provide extra strength and protection and come in a sturdy, easy storage carry case.
Non-toxic and safe for children to use from 2 years

This style of ball makes learning to catch so much easier. The ball doesn't bounce out of the hand and small fingers can grip it easily. The colourful nature of the ball also makes it simpler to track through the air.
Engaging toy to use as a part of a developmental program to build visual motor skills, to develop social engagement through rolling or throw and catch games or to develop shoulder stability through throw and catch games.
Includes six egg shapes in plastic egg carton.
These simple sorting eggs provide opportunity for the development of early visual perceptual, visual motor, motor planning and bilateral coordination skills while also being a great addition to the imaginative play and language development collection. Egg shaped objects also provide opportunity for the early development of grasp skills necessary for later handwriting as they encourage the use of the thumb and first two fingers for grasp.
Manufacturer recommends for 18 months and over.
Open the trap doors and make the beads go around! Each trap door requires a different type of fine motor manipulation. Learn each of these simple skills with the motivation of flowing beads.
