Jumping from stone to stone on the rocky shore of a rushing river is not only exciting, it also encourages gross motor skills, coordination, balance, and more. The Nordic Gonge Riverstones from Fat Brain Toys takes this concept, removes all the danger while bringing out “tons of fun and education!”
Here’s more from their website:
“Three large and three small – each riverstone is tastefully colored with an attractive earth tone, features different angles and ridges, and is built with a non-slip surface and rubber edges, so there’s never any fear of falling…”
The game comes with a game guide to give you different ideas of how to play with the stones. It recommends starting simple with the stones in a row for children to walk across. Then play a game of musical stones where kids have to find a big stone to stand on when the music stops. Or set out the stones in a random scramble and let children find their own paths.
