Our Special Needs contributor Emily Vanek shares her thoughts on how this product might be a good choice for a Special Needs child.
Kids of any ability need to develop their fine motor skills, which are essential for intricate movements with the hand such as grasping or writing. Stacking blocks is a great activity to help kids develop and strengthen these skills. The size of the MEGA Bloks First Builders helps immensely with these skills. The large size coupled with the rounded edges of the connectors makes the blocks easy to stack. All kids love feeling successful, and these blocks provide a sense of accomplishment while playing and building vital skills.
