    Unprecedented demand for deliveries

    Good quality

    The wooden blocks are in good size. Little one likes playing with them. May be less challenge for kids close to 3

    Independent play

    These beads are an excellent size for my little boys fingers as he practises his fine motor skills. Not too small to be a choking hazard, but still a good size to create a challenge as he threads the beads through. He has been able to differentiate/ sort some beads making strings of only “round ones” or only “the flat rectangles”. Great for language development too as we describe the features of the beads. He will now initiate his own play with them, and I don’t have to get them out for him.

    Great Fine Motor for Toddler

    These beads are chunky, easily held by little hands. The plastic “needle” top to the string makes it easier to thread. My 20 month old has used them daily since the arrived.
