This colourful box transforms into a grill and an assortment of tasty-looking treats that slide onto skewers. The play set also boosts social skills and tests the brain cells. The menu cards contained within the kit encourage children to work on patterning and sequencing, which are part of foundational mathematics.
Players work as a team to get the animals across the bridge to safety. Winning and losing together can help children cope with unpredictable circumstances in a healthier manner.
This toy helps kids learn about spatial relationships and improves lateral thinking. Once they’ve figured out where the characters are in the scene, they can highlight their location using the grid and tokens provided.
Future designers can create their first masterpiece with this silk scarf painting kit. All they need to do is pop the scarf over the box and decorate it using the paints supplied.
