EARLY YEARS LEARNING SKILLS YOUR CHILD WILL LEARN
Courage, Bonding, Sensory, Imagination, Vocabulary
Playing with our smiley, friendly Incy Wincy Spider is bound to build COURAGE in your little one, and combat any irrational fear of bugs
Parents are the earliest friends for children, and playing together - even for a child as young as a few months old - can create a deep sense of BONDING. This leads to trust and love for both adults and little ones.
The Incy Wincy Spider set of story gloves are made with textures and materials that offers SENSORY play for younger children, while also creating a 3D effect bringing the spider, the cloud and the sun alive helping connect with the characters through a deeply tactile experience
Through our tactile characters we are bringing the rhyme of Incy Wincy Spider alive, helping little minds create a larger picture of how the story and narrative unfolded. The set of 10 finger puppets is made for both, playing alone as well as group play. So, the Fabula Family of Mummy, Daddy, Brother, Sister, Baby, Grandpa, Grandma, Cat, Dog and Best friend become the perfect companion for anyone who wants to play along. Put together the finger puppets can not just recreate a child's own family, but also recreate any combination or bring any story to life - giving a healthy boost to IMAGINATIVE PLAY!
Very often children learn rhymes without completely understanding the words in use. Our Incy Wincy Spider set ensures that children know exactly what some of the key words in the rhyme mean and how they affect each other. They assist in developing an early vocabulary among children using resources they already love - nursery rhymes
Through the Fabula FAMILY of Mummy, Daddy, Brother, Sister, Baby, Grandpa, Grandma, Cat, Dog and Best friend finger puppets, we encourage children to recognise members of their own families. Apart from being able to relate to the toy better, it also encourages a better sense of self for little ones - as well as prepare for an oncoming baby or a new pet
Through identifying each finger puppet and finding similarities with a family member - our Finger Family Puppets encourage a keen sense of OBSERVATION among little ones, who start off assuming every family is the same, only to learn that each family is different and eventually understands what makes their own family unique.
We are extremely passionate about being an INCLUSIVE brand as well as promoting it early among young children. That is why the characters of the Fabula family who feature liberally across the finger puppets are of mixed cultures and also represent those with disabilities as integral and loving members of the world around us. We have taken special care to also include same sex, adopted and foster families to be able to offer representation to most children
Our set of finger puppets go beyond the immediate family to also include grand parents, best friend and pets; who are often very important members of a child's universe. These intend on teaching compassion and love through ASSOCIATION while playing
