We were asked to review the Threading Animals by Asco Educational for izziwizzikids.
The box we received contained two beautifully made wooden animals, a butterfly and a turtle which were painted to a perfectly smooth finish. 40 shapes and 20 laces in 4 bright colours were supplied which was more than ample so a very positive first impression.
Miss M had already attempted the basic process of threading with a little book she has that comes with a few laces and holes in the pictures on the pages to thread through – a bit like dot to dot with laces – so this toy was the next step up in the challenge for her.
With some guidance and assistance from mummy, Miss M happily sat threading away despite a few minor issues we had with the product, but we overcame these by using the shapes slightly differently to how we initially thought upon opening the box.
Overall we love the concept of this toy, found the wooden pieces to be beautifully made and are really pleased to see plenty of shapes & laces to work with for both animals. This is a lovely toy particularly for girls and really encourages great hand eye coordination. It ranges from ages 3 upwards so is great for little ones that require some help and encouragement or older children who would be able to play this independently.
Threading Animals is available to buy from Asco Educational.
