At about 15 m my mother was watching him for the day and she taught him how to pull the beads apart - POP! - and push them back together - SNAP!. They must have spent three hours plus doing this and they had a blast. And he continues to enjoy it - very proud of himself when he pulls them apart. Lots of clapping is always involved.
Pulling apart the beads and putting them together (even with help) are definitely developing his fine motor skills.
I really think the suggested age for these is a bit young - an infant could fill and dump but not much else. It takes a bit of strength and coordination to even pull them apart and putting them together is much more challenging and so far has required a little help from an adult. With some shapes being more challenging then others. (I do wonder if we got a particularly stiff bunch as the popbeads that came with our Alex Jr. builder set seem a lot easier.)
I also wanted to note that the plastic these are made of feels on the cheaper side - but so far has held up to a lot of toddler abuse with only a few dents. I was concerned that my son would chew on them and break off and swallow an end but again so far no problems and my son puts everything in his mouth and has a full set of baby teeth. But I do think that if an adult wearing shoes stepped down on one straight on it could be squashed.Read more ›
