The visually stunning activity wall is designed to look like a friendly crocodile that will attract interest and admiration wherever he is sighted. Made in five pieces, each with a different set of manipulative activities to encourage hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills including: percussive instruments, a mirror, magnetic pen and ball followers, various mazes and threading activities, rotational pieces and a slotted line followers and interlocking cogs.
The crocodile will promote hours of fun for an individual child or small groups of children playing and learning collaboratively. The challenges offer a range of hands-on problem solving learning opportunities for the development of fine motor skills whilst engaging children in conversations about what they are doing.
The crocodile provides exceptional value for money and comes fully assembled in 5 ready to go pieces. Each piece comes with fixing holes and attachment screws for easy fitting to a wall. By placing him low down children will be able to access him from a seated or standing position.
