Shape Music Switch

Shape Music Switch

Use to activate toys or play soothing music! This sweet-sounding music box is activated by our popular shape switch. When the child inserts the correct shapes into place, the music box plays a pleasant tune. This teaches color and shape recognition. Every shape has a post for easy manipulation. Works as a stand-alone music box or as an external switch. If it’s plugged into a toy, it activates the toy but does not play music. Description from manufacturers’ website.

Cushioned grip keeps the utensil in the hand–even when wet. Good Grips® stainless steel utensils have a 1-3/8? (3.5cm) built-up handle. The soft, latex-free material has flexible ribbing that conforms to any grip. This handle design is so unique, it has a U.S. patent. The forks and spoons have a special twist built into the metal shaft that allows them to be bent to any angle, for either left- or right-handed use.  This is an excellent solution for persons with limited hand-to-mouth reach. Persons with hand arthritis, neurological impairments or generalized weakness will find these utensils comfortable, less stressful to hold and easily adaptable. The special edge of the Serrated Rocker Knife provides extra stability while cutting, including meat. The Souper Spoon™ with raised lip is ideal for persons with tremors, poor hand control, arthritis, stroke, or Parkinson’s disease.  The innovative lip is specially designed to keep liquids and food on the spoon while moving from the plate to the mouth.
