TARATA Balancing Elephants – Colour (G)

Hand
made from farm forested timber, these fun puzzles will challenge your
skills, dexterity and patience as you try and balance them.  It’s simply
a matter of holding your tongue in the right place! Each set comes
attractively gift boxed,  with full instructions and a challenging
configuration card showing about 20 of the literally 100’s of possible
ways of balancing each set, and for even more fun sets can be combined
so you can make towers reaching the sky!  In fact we’ve balanced over 20
Dinosaurs together (actually they were hanging off a shelf) and we’ve
received photos from enthusiasts who’ve balanced more!

  • A fun game of skill for creative minds
  • For children and adults
  • Hundreds of Balancing possibilities
  • Sets combine for more fun
  • A great educational game
  • Hand made from a single block of timber.

 
·         Balancing
Animals are a fun game of skill for both children and adults. 
Different age groups will use them in different ways.  Young children
may just stack them one on the other, or play with the animals
separately.  Older children will be able to recognise the different
shapes and do the configurations.  As play develops they will try their
own configurations and look for praise from adults for their
accomplishments.

 
·         Balancing
Animals are fun to balance while teaching and improving hand-eye
coordination, problem solving skills, patience and perseverance, shape
recognition, plan reading, minor motor skills, colour recognition as
well as giving an enjoyable tactile experience.


·         Children
will learn about the physics of gravity, leverage, fulcrums,  friction
etc as well as experiencing the tactile benefits of touching and playing
with timber.


·         Adults
will usually try to do all the configurations, and then develop their
own.  In group play they may race to see who can balance the set the
quickest, or who can build the highest tower or the widest stack. 
Challenges of building on top of the smallest animal or using each
animal as a starting point will ensue.


·         We
have suggested only a few of the hundred of configurations possible
with each set and Balancing Animals are able to be combined with other
sets (either of the same style or different styles) to build large
configurations.  This can be a lot of fun as well as a great challenge.

 
·         When
people are finished playing with Balancing Animals they can be placed
on a shelf or mantle to look fun, ready for the next time!  Some people
like to make a new configuration each day!
