With this highly engaging toy, children get a chance to think of creative ways to balance eggs on the back of the hen. This augments fine motor skills and improves dimension awareness, thus developing their concentration levels

By balancing the eggs, children achieve greater dexterity. Nesting the pieces in this toy helps in developing fine motor skills. It is a simple activity that helps children focus on sizes and dimensions of objects leading to effective spatial analysis. Stacking uneven and distinct objects helps children understand the correlation between sizes and weights. Pairing, size gradation and name games enhance children's awareness of shapes as a property of objects.

Once children are done with this toy, they can begin to explore other areas of development (See How).
Set includes a nest shaped base, a wooden hen, 5 concentric ovals representing the eggs and a detailed instruction manual all packed in an elegant Skola Doodle box. Size of Stacked Pieces : 19 cm x 14.5 cm x 15.5 cm
