BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Thursday, 22 May 2008
First, there were the Counting Fishies and now... Count Your Ladybugs! Below is the full description of this new toy at BTRT.

Firmly needle felted to withstand lots and lots of toddler play! These little bugs are 100% wool and felted all the way through for durability. The cores are Corriedale and the outer is Merino, so soft and touchable! All colours are permanent and non-toxic. The ladybugs are roughly the same size, but
being handmade there is naturally some variation. Each bug is approximately 3" long and .5" high.
These ladybugs are a multi-skill learning toy for toddlers and preschoolers:
~feel the wool, its warm and lively textures. Feel the difference between the dots/ numerals and the bodies. Feel the number of raised dots to help identify quantity.
~practice colour identification

~practice ordering numbers by numerals and quantities (dots)
~match numerals to their amounts (flip the bugs)
~identify numbers and amounts they represent
o simple math
~play imaginatively with the provided leaf and pouch
~props for acting out songs and rhymes
~active play~ stack them, toss the ladybugs on to their leaf, catch them in a jar (with holes for air!)!
~... and of course, much more in the hands of your child!

This set of six ladybugs comes with a silk crepe bag (drawstring, lined, hand dyed, approx. 6" square) and leaf dyed Fairy Silkie (tm) (11 x 11").
(not pictured here)

Not recommended for children who still mouth their toys. Additional ladybugs can be added to customize your set (in groups of three).

OK~ are you sing 'The Ladybug's Picnic' from Sesame Street yet? One, two three, four five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, and they all played games...
