Counting and learning numbers has never been so much fun with this wooden apple picker!
This toy not only promotes hands-on learning but also provides opportunities for your little one to develop and enhance different grasp patterns and manipulation skills of different tools.
- Quality: This toy is made of high-quality wood and painted with safe, non-toxic materials. Aside from teaching basic counting and numbers, it provides a great opportunity to improve fine motor skills.
- Benefits: The use of tongs in this toy is actually a great idea to develop strength and coordination in the small muscles of the hands. It requires your child to separate the thumb, index & middle finger from the other fingers during squeezing and releasing action and therefore provides practice with this precision side of the hand—the same side that your little one uses in drawing, writing, coloring, and cutting.
- Use: It can also be played as a fun and simple game of apple picking using a tong or a spoon. If played this way, it can facilitate simple turn-taking skills among players. It can even be a tool that teaches about winning and losing when played in a competitive manner.
- Inclusion: 10 wooden apples; 1 wooden tree; 1 pretend spoon; 1 pretend tongs; 10 cards
