Great concept and educational but over priced for what it is. You could recreate this at home for very little
Fantastic little bag
The pinch a pom pom is a lovely idea. My daughter loves it and picked it up really quickly. She is 3. Smooth transition from start to finish.
Excellent quality product and really liked the extensions to play.
Very simple, yet very effective! My 3 year old loves it!
