Abilitations Fidget Feed Me Fred Parrot Set
Abilitations fidget set provides sensory input to help improve focus and concentration, and strengthen the intrinsic hand muscles and arches to improve handwriting skills. The set has two “Feed Me Fred” parrot toys for individual or group play, and 12 pom-pom food pellets for “feeding” Fred. Children can also feed marbles, cotton balls, dry cereal, or fish-shaped crackers to Fred, who measures approximately 3.5” in diameter. Fred is made of phthalate-free polyvinyl chloride (PVC) for durability and safer use, and his food pellets are polyester for resistance to moisture and oils. PVC plastic is corrosion resistant, lightweight, and has high strength, resisting reactions with acids, gasoline, alcohol, and hydrocarbons. Polyester shrinks at a very low temperature compared to other shrinkable plastics and forms an excellent mechanical barrier that can be used at both high and low temperatures; it is moisture and vapor resistant, and unaffected by oils, greases, and volatile aromatics. The set may be suitable for some children on the autism spectrum and for special needs, preschool, and early childhood learning environments.
Special needs products are designed to help improve sensory processing, positioning and mobility, fine motor, and language and communication skills for students with learning challenges. Fine motor products can help individuals improve fine motor skills (hand dexterity), eye-hand coordination, handwriting, self-help skills, such as dressing, and focus and concentration.
