Play Tip PLAY Tip

Learning Shapes the Musical Way!

Children with special needs can be slower to learn their colors, shapes and fastenings. The Jumbo Music Block teaches all three at once! A song tells children which side of the block to turn up and a special treat is hidden behind each fastening. Try saying the name of the color and shape as the child is searching and again when it is found to add extra reinforcement of the concepts.
