This hands-on My Busy Bots bag is a great natural sensory activity which broadens a variety of key areas such as colour sorting, pre-writing skills and hand eye coordination. It will capture the imagination of little people as they use their magnetic fishing rod to catch some fish. Each little fish then needs to find its home in the fish bowl of a matching colour.
This bag is suitable for little ones from 18 months up to 4 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
