Birds are fascinating creatures for children because of their ability to fly. That's what makes this toy so enjoyable for them. When they pair the bird images to their respective shadows, they get curious to know that shapes are not only associated to physical objects but also to images or illustrations. This indicates that shape is an abstract property of any object. Children also learn the names of these ten birds and get interested in knowing more about them.
When children start playing with the toy, they place each bird in the slot to check which fits, which is an excellent fine motor skill as well as a daily life skill. They eventually practice abstract pairing completely taking them to the next level of geometry. This toy enhances curiousity and interest in bird names and facts. This also makes for an extremely challenging and thrilling memory-building and retention exercise.
