Are you steady enough to work at this fun fruit stand? Spin the wheel, then use the jumbo tweezers to pick or place fruit.
Develops fine motor skills, especially the all important hand development stages that prepares children for handwriting. Using tweezers, such as these that provide resistance to the muscles means that the muscles of the thumb/index web space are developed ready for an open tripod grasp. Encouraging children to use just the thumb and first two fingers also encourages the development of division of the two sides of the hand.
Reinforces colour and fruit vocabulary and as a part of early social skills such as turn taking.
Includes 40 fruit counters (5 different fruits), 2 jumbo tweezers, picture spinner, and adjustable cardboard fruit stand/storage box measuring 6"L x 9.5"W x 13.75"H

An extra large bead version of the more traditional iron on bead design kits. Use the template supplied (patterns & pegboards will vary) or create your own masterpiece.
Such a simple toy that can be progressively used to develop a range of fine motor skills. Start with simple pincer grasp and placement, use easy grip tweezers or fish sticks to develop division of the two sides of the hand and thumb/index web space stability. Then move onto moving a few beads into the hand (translation into the palm) and then one bead at a time onto the board (translation out of the palm). Simple toy - lots of potential!!
When finished, design may be permanently fused together by ironing (by an adult) or reuse the activity again and again.
