4.0 out of 5 stars Happy Students = Happy Teacher, 29 Sep 2013
I have a couple of these balls that I use with severely autistic non-verbal students and they are always popular. Not only does it fascinate them, it also helps with their social skills as they have to learn to share! I have a bag of toys and it's always the flashing balls that go first during our sensory sessions, so the students also leaarn to wait, take turns, and are starting to understand the concept of time as they watch a timer countdown to their turn. If the batteries only last a short time, who cares? My students have already had a lot of pleasure from them and are learning a lot. I'll definitely be buying more.

I love this collection of books! A lot of activities/tasks over lap between books, but that's part of the beauty in my opinion. It gives you the chance to interpret the instructions differently and let your imagination run wild, and abandon all the usual 'book rules'.

My creativity levels have sky rocketed which can only be a good thing as a learning support assistant… Read more

I ordered this months ago and was really looking forward to receiving it... I'm actually really really disappointed. I've awarded the 2 stars for the book alone. The rest of it doesn't deserve any!
The book is the same as you can buy anywhere so nothing special there. The mask is shocking! It's flimsy and not actually very well made. It has a hanging tab on the forehead and a label on the back helpfully suggesting it be removed prior to wearing. If the edges of the mask either side of the tab actually lined up it might be doable, but as it is, it's impossible to keep the top of the mask straight.
The packaging is dreadful - the mask doesn't actually fit in the box properly… Read more
