All children are drawn to brightly coloured things, they love to touch, hold and experience their learning first-hand. In this My Busy Bots bag, little ones use fun coloured shape blocks to explore different shapes and colours. As they match the shapes to the pictures, rockets zoom to the moon, crocodiles go snap and fish begin to swim in the sea!
This activity is suitable for little ones from 3 - 5 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
