Our hedgehog lost his quills, and only your little ones can help him get them back! New from Learning Resources, Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog helps kids build up hand muscles and fine motor skills as they replace the chunky, peg-shaped quills within the holes that dot the smiling hedgehogs back. The learning doesnt end there--Spike's colorful quills also lend themselves well to lessons in counting, sorting, and color identification skills. Kids can arrange the quills by warm or cool colors, work on sequences and patterns by alternating colors, or count up the quills with the help of numbers printed on the hedgehogs back. Once playtime is over, Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog is a snap to clean up--each piece is made of plastic that can be easily wiped clean, and the quills stow snugly inside the hedgehogs body, which adds simplicity to storage too.
