This kit will help you follow in the footsteps of the great haiku masters! Traditionally, a haiku has 17 syllables - five in the first line, seven in the second and five again in the third. It usually makes reference to nature and the season, and is written in plain language about an everyday event, like taking a walk or making dinner. Kit contains over 200 themed magnetic word tiles.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 0 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Traumatic Brain Injury
"My husband has a brain injury that effects his initiation, motor skills and speech. Our therapist thought magnetic poetry would be a great exercise for him on a daily basis to encourage creativity and initiation. There are a limited number of words and we group them by grammatical category (i.e. verbs, pronouns, adjectives etc.) so that his brain can more easily process the creation of a sentence. He has a degree in journalism and has in the past had an interest in writing Haiku poetry. Haiku has a rhythm which adds another, more challenging layer of thought to creating sentences on the refrigerator everyday. "
