BRIEF INTRODUCTION ABOUT MAPED – Some of this information was taken from their website.

ABOUT THE KIT
Yay! No messy kit, I love it. There is no glue needed for this which if you are like me, little hands and glue can get very messy. The design concept of this kit is genius.

This is a great kit to introduce collage making with any little fingers and I love the fact that the child friendly scissors that comes in the kit are a rounded design making them suitable for tiny hands. Rest assured they are safe for those little hands to cut pieces of paper very securely and safely.

Being an absolute fan of any toy that encompasses sensory and interactive play, I find it is extremely important for any child’s development.

Cognitive learning is also very important when it comes to interactive play and there is so much that can be learnt through this kit, including counting, imagination, observation, concentration, hand and eye co-ordination and so much more. Just let your child’s imagination run wild and you will be surprised that with your help and interaction how much they can really learn from playing with this kit.

This kit is brilliant for letting your child be free and unleash their imagination, you can watch them grow with confidence as they make their own great piece of art by applying their own unique skills when making these collage pictures.
