Threading beads are fantastic for developing hand eye co-ordination, but the beads need to big enough and the hole wide enough so the task isn't too frustrating for really small children!
Enter Vilac and their wonderful take on the whole threading bead activity. 14 Chunky wooden blocks depicting common things you'll find in your garden, from rabbits and birds to apples, wellies and buckets! Also included are two felt leaves and a long chord with three safety clasps (this is long enough so two children can play at the same time). There's lots of opportunity here for developing new vocabulary too!
I love that the set comes in a sturdy box with a handle (because what toddler doesn't love carrying things from place to place!).
