i'm a childminder. i bought the fish for two 3 yr olds and two 2 year olds, i bought lots of different kitchen tongues and pincers and anything they could use to grab the fish for co-ordination, hand to eye, i talk about the colours, stripes, spots, names for language development, we sort them into categories, for maths practise. they use them in pans for cooking, imagination development. they also throw them all over the place, for me to do tidy up practise! Very versatile product to cover lots of areas of child development - EYFS.
