The Playskool Explore N’ Grow Busy Ball Popper is fun for all ages, but is recommended for two and up. It helps to develop imagination and creativity.
Fine Motor/Visual Motor: This toy helps with grasping, manipulation, and visual motor skills are used to place the balls in the popper.
Gross Motor: Your child can pick up the balls as they walk up/down stairs or during an obstacle course. They can work on standing, reaching, and kneeling as they interact with the toy.
Sensory: To target sensory development, place the balls in a sensory bin full of corn kernels, rice, sand, or beans.
Articulation/Speech: Balls from this toy work as a great reinforcement while targeting any speech sound. You can also target sounds in words you use while playing with this set, like /p/ in “pop”, “push”, and “put”.
Language: You can address requesting, labeling, and commenting with your child as you play with this musical ball popper. Work on spatial concepts like top/bottom, up/down, and in/out. You can address colors, counting, and descriptive concepts like empty/full and fast/slow. You can also have your child complete 1-step or multi-step directions as you play.
