Building fine-motor skills is a lot like picking up a new sport- it requires specific kinds of training and practice. Your child will need to learn to coordinate their eyes, hands, wrists and fingers, which will eventually let them do things like writing, typing, buttoning their clothes, tying their shoes and so on. The Fine Motor Kit has exactly what your child needs at this age to practice those skills.
✅ Train hand-eye coordination and dexterity
✅ Improve finger strength
✅ Engage in problem-solving activities
✅ Practice posting skills

Exciting milestones from 13 to 20 months
Learn motor planning skills
Motor planning refers to the process of organizing and planning movements in order to achieve a specific goal or task. This happens automatically for tasks we do all the time like brushing our teeth, but it’s something that your child can work on with toys that encourage executing a series of actions.
Practice posting and containment
Your child will enjoy hiding things in containers and ‘finding’ them. One way to practice this is through posting objects - the act of putting an item into a container through a small opening - by using toys like our In-Box. This is a great way to train fine-motor skills, finger dexterity, and concentration.
Fine-tuning movements and manual dexterity
Good coordination is crucial for advanced motor tasks that your child will learn in the future. Toys like our Mama Goose Set and Busier Book (L) encourage your child to fine-tune small movements that involve their wrist, hand, and fingers.
Promote problem-solving skills
How do you get the coins out of the Hedgehog Tumble Train? How can you match the circular pieces on the Paint Palette Puzzle? Through experimenting and tinkering with the toys, your child will develop important problem-solving skills.

I purchased the Newborn Kit for my baby and it surpassed my expectations - the sensory toys have already become a big part in my baby's early development. The vibrant colours, contrasting patterns, and different textures were really stimulating and engaged my baby's attention. The textures on the toys and objects also encouraged touch and exploration.
