Educational Benefits:
Special Needs Applications - Key Features and Benefits
 
Cognitive: 

  • Realistic looking play food helps children begin to understand the
    concept of pretend play.  They are more likely to pretend play with
    objects they are already familiar with; such as food they know, as
    opposed to novel, abstract “things”.
    ?

  • Many pieces in each set so children can incorporate counting
    and repetition into play. 

 

Communicative: 

  • Realistic-looking play food helps children begin to understand
    the concept of pretend play. 

  • Enough food in each set that children can begin parallel play
    – playing with the same item next to each other, but not interacting
    and then cooperative play as skills develop.

  • Encourages full sentences by asking for items using descriptive words

  • Realistic food enables children to learn to recognize real items in a store, restaurant or at home.   

Physical: 

  • Encourage a child who may have a weaker side to use both hands
    and arms in play.  

  • Food in the basket encourages children to bring their arm up and
    reach into the basket to retrieve a food item promoting range of motion in the arms.  

Sensory:

  • Distinct texture adds to realism and aids children with visual impairments.
