The Calico Critters Adventure Tree House is fun for all ages, but is recommended for three and up. It helps to develop imagination and creativity.
Fine Motor/Visual Motor: Moving the toy animals to sit, stand, and turn can build problem solving, grasping, and manipulation skills. Manipulating the small picnic set pieces can also build grasping skills.
Gross Motor: Your child can pick up the toy animals as they walk up/down stairs or during an obstacle course.
Sensory: Place the toy animals in a sensory bin full of corn kernels, rice, sand, or beans.
Social: Work on pretend play skills, turn-taking, and joint attention with this fun and engaging toy set.
Articulation/Speech: You can target sounds in words you use while playing with this set, like /s/ blends in “slide” and “swing”.
Language: This tree house set includes toy animals, as well as a toy slide, swing, and a picnic table set. Your child can build skills in requesting, labeling, and commenting as they interact with this great variety of pretend play items. Work on spatial concepts on, top/bottom, up/down, next to, in front/behind, under, and in/out. You can address descriptive concepts like big/small and fast/slow. Work on action words like “slide, swing, climb, jump, run, play, eat, drink”. You can also have your child complete 1-step or multi-step directions as you pretend play together.
