Size Name: Getting Your Hands Ready Verified Purchase
My 25 month old daughter loves this kit. We skipped the Grasshopper 1&2 for several reasons (if there were lowercase letters on the "fish" I would have still bought it to use as letter sound reinforcement). So I looked at the 3rd kit and decided to try it.

We have used the stampers, mini crayons, and the frog with the bugs. She LOVES them.

Really, asks for the frog daily. She is able to do it as the frog is not too difficult for her to squeeze. The bugs are so cute too. I place her hands on the frog to be sure she can squeeze effectively then she does it alone - while I am watching to make sure a bug doesn't go in the wrong mouth :)

The stampers are great with their supplied dough (odd consistency with a scent) or with our homemade play-dough, we use them on both. She holds the stampers as suggested in the suppled resource book for parents (I placed her fingers the first time).

The mini crayons are like broken crayons but the great thing is that every one has a point (unlike when you use broken crayons). They force correct finger placement... though my daughter initially found a way to not use the correct placement, once I showed her how to hold it she used them correctly.

Also included in the kit are cute reusable (seem durable) stickers and a background scene (We use regular stickers on paper taped to an easel for the same effect but I don't think she is quite ready to make the "scene"). Pealing off and placing stickers on an upright surface apparently helps reinforce and work writing muscles in the fingers.

HINT: The Grasshopper website has other ideas/ways you can make supplies and use these supplies.

I bought this after reading a review online. Without a doubt, it is a very nice, easy to use educational kit. I like the all in one features - everything is ready to go in the case. It's good quality and has stood up to my youngest 2 active boys. Their favorite part by far is the fishing game, with the gel letter sheet being a close second. I personally think it's a little overpriced for what you get, but we do like & have used it for the past 2 months.

I bought this kit for my almost 3 year old daughter as she has been showing interest in letters and words. I'm disappointed. The quality is not great (definitely a "Made in China" quality). The fish were scuffed and scratched out of the box and one letter was almost completely scratched off the fish. The gel is stiff and not maneuverable for my daughter's small fingers (hardly for mine!). The static cling "stickers" ripped off the sheet are just plain cheap. Yes, the all-in-one case is nice and the activities are educational, but I just think it's way overpriced for what you get. Almost all of the activities included can be made at home in some way. My advice is do some research online and make your own kit!
