Who is this game good for?

  • Any child aged 3 years+ (due to choking hazards and small parts)
  • Pre-school children developing their grip strength in readiness for handwriting – they might not manage the tripod grip with these tweezers at first so let their grip develop naturally rather than push too soon for the tripod grip.
  • Primary school children of all ages seeking to have fun whilst developing their tripod grip strength for handwriting
  • Fun families from 3-103!
  • Children with dyspraxia and dysgraphia will find this game enormously helpful to improve their grip strength
  • Any child currently using a pencil grip in school to aid their handwriting
