Pick up sticks is a classic and timeless family game that has been made from beautifully coloured rubberwood sticks. The game involves dropping the sicks on a surface and then using a pincer like grip to carefully pick up a stick without disturbing the rest of the sticks in the pile. If a stick moves when you are trying to remove your stick then you miss your turn and the next person takes their turn.
This game whilst simple in design helps the development of many sensory skills such as fine motor skills, cognitive skills of planning and problem solving and the emotional skills of perseverance and patience. It is also a great size for taking out and about on a picnic, day out or on holiday.
Size: 12cm x 20cm x 4cm.
Suitable from 3+. Warning: not suitable for children under 3 due to small parts.
For over 30 years, Plan Toys have been making iconic educational toys that bring children closer to nature and inspire creative imaginations and learning through play. Little hands love getting to grips with Plan Toys which are just about as eco, sustainable and high quality as toys can be. Everything is ethically made in Thailand from rubber trees that no longer produce latex, non-formaldehyde glue (which Plan Toys make themselves), organic colour pigments; and water-colour dyes – and the whole process is carbon-neutral too. As well as making FSC solid wood toys, many products are made from Planwood – an ingenious eco material made by compressing sawdust produced in the Plan Toys factory so that nothing goes to waste. All toys come packaged in recycled, non-toxic packaging which can go straight into your recycling bin.
