A lot of thought and trying out various lengths/products went into deciding what we should include in this set. They have been tested with my 2 and 5 year old.
These tools are size and length appropriate for little ones. They come in different widths to work with various sized items.
Little Yellow Brick Tip : work with a few tools at a time, depending on sensory elements used/size required; different sizes, handles work different fine motor skills. It's also less overwhelming having to choose from 9 different items at the same time. :)
These are great for sensory play with loose parts; for felt balls, we recommend using a range of 1cm to 1.5cm with the tongs - we have 1.5cm wool balls in our sensory play range!). Use loose parts of different weights, textures, shapes and scents to add sensory elements to play.
Interestingly, while taking photos of the set, my 2 and 5 year old engaged in pretend kitchen play with them. These tools are versatile! I hope they would bring you and your little ones lots of fun :)
