Junior Labyrinth Review
Recently my children received a Junior Labyrinth from Child.com.au and they absolutely love it. Not only are they learning how to think logically, they are having fun whilst doing it.
The object of the Labyrinth, for children aged 3 years +, is to move the balls with the magnetic pens to each end without getting stuck in the barriers. There are moveable pieces of wood inside that make for an extra challenge when moving the balls around the labyrinth. In order for them successfully complete the maze they must think about not only the move they are making but also consider what action they will make a few turns in advance.
When my boys were in long day care the centre had a large scale one of these on the wall and the kids absolutely loved it. This smaller version has not lost any of its appeal and if anything because it can be used by 1 or 2 players at a time, they can enjoy a little bit of healthy competition as well. As a result of it being interactive and engaging, children do not realise they are refining their motor skills and challenging their hand-eye co-ordination. To them, they are just having fun.
The Junior Labyrinth is made with the highest quality in mind from sustainable rubber wood. This makes it not only strong and durable but also safe for your children to play with for years to come. It is perfect for indoor use or whilst travelling as there are no little pieces that can be lost and it requires absolutely no clean up.
With a retail price of $65.99 from Child.com.au this 30cm square Junior Labyrinth is the perfect size for children of all ages.
Do you kids enjoy mazes and puzzles? How do you assist in developing your child’s skills?
