Children find the idea of a magnetic pen extremely fascinating and engaging as they use it to navigate the balls through the maze. By feeding the hungry dinosaurs with the correct number of balls, they understand how each number is associated to a fixed quantity. In addition, children love identifying different dinosaurs on the board which makes this toy a perfect combination of fun and learning. This toy reinforces the number system and counting, as children have to feed the correct number of balls to the dinosaurs. It also helps them understand that the last number in the counting sequence indicates the total number of objects in a set. The precision required to carry the balls in each slot is great practice for improving fine motor and pre-writing skills.
