See the world in a myriad of colours through the lenses of this pair of binoculars.
This toy thrills children as they see the world in different colours using an object beyond the human eye. The wide variety of filters excites them when they look at the world around them appear differently with each colour. This allows children to perceive colour as an abstract property or an adjective used to describe an object.
Set includes a wooden binocular shaped viewer with 4 pairs of coloured glasses, all packed in an elegant Skola Doodle box. Comes with a detailed instruction manual.

Once children are done with this toy, they can begin to explore other areas of development (See How)
This is the first time the child is able to grasp the complex aspect of colour being an abstract property as the objects they see take on the colour of the filter they are looking through. While using the binoculars, the activity of changing and applying filters is also a great exercise to hone fine motor skills.
Show the child how to take two lenses of the same colour and place on the binoculars. Then ask the child to look through the glasses and focus on a light coloured wall. Ask the child to describe the colour. Similarly repeat for other colours.
Once introduced to this toy, you will often come across the child holding the viewer, pointing to every object saying the colour name. The child may also choose to experiment with 2 different coloured glasses, combinations and so on."
