My kid LOVES the binoculars!
Better than I expected. Binoculars work and puppets are super cute. Cards are ok.
My son does weekly speech therapy, and doing it via zoom can sometimes be a challenge. Keeping a 3 year old focused on a computer for an hour, or even keeping them in one place can be a challenge. But on a whim one week we pulled out a kiwi box and they're just so wonderful. They keep in engaged and busy while we work on his sounds, and he ends the session with cool toys. This one in particular was wonderful and I really loved the way the puppets had the different textures so we could talk about what animals feel like. He loves those puppets. All the projects were age appropriate for him, and the instructions visual enough that he needed minimal guidance. Great work!
