Don't underestimate the amount of creative, educational, quiet play packed into this compact travel kit by Lauri. Kids can use the 25-piece "locktagon" construction set to build imaginative shapes and structures. Three lacing and tracing cards come with long, grippable threads to keep hands and eyes busy. A 27-piece puzzle teaches kids letters and their sequence in the alphabet. The pieces to four round, "fit-a-space puzzles" help children learn their shapes while doubling as fun pieces to string together. The tracing cards are made of durable chipboard while the rest of the kit is created from a nearly indestructible bumpy crepe rubber that's fun to touch and manipulate. With its handy rubber handle and Velcro-fastened lid, the kit is fun to tote along to Grandma's house, restaurants, or on long vacation trips. Don't worry about losing pieces; Lauri will mail replacement pieces to you for 50 cents each. --Joan DeClaire

Essential Lacing Play
Lacing is fun, and it helps hone important skills.
Children love puzzles, and this one helps teach the ABCs!
Increase fine motor control, introduce problem solving, develop concentration and encourage quiet play with these unique, durable shapes. The lacing activity develops the pincer grip, which is an important step to acquiring good penmanship. Lacing gives children a sense of accomplishment, as well, and is excellent preparation for learning to tie shoes! The laces are 27" long with easy-to-thread 1" tips. The variety of shapes helps children develop spatial relations skills, all while having fun.
Children can feel letter shapes and learn sequences with this classic Lauri® crepe rubber alphabet puzzle. They will become familiar with letters and alphabetical order, and perhaps try to form small words as they become more comfortable with letters. Because it’s in a puzzle frame, it is self-checking! Lauri crepe rubber is soft, with a pebbled texture on one side, and won’t curl, crease or tear. It’s washable and durable for years of learning fun!
Creativity is Important, Too!
Crepe rubber Locktagons are the perfect size for little hands! This activity allows children to explore their imagination with freeform creations. The shapes have slots that lock together to build 3D structures that are simple, yet challenging, and lots of fun!
