Move and learn while having fun with Nimbly!
This innovative mat is designed for children between 2 and 10 years old, able-bodied or less able-bodied. It can be played alone or in groups with a maximum of 12 players. Developed in Canada (Quebec) by Dr Mariève Blanchet, a researcher in children’s motor skills, Nimbly is particularly suitable for use in schools, extracurricular activities, therapeutic and family settings.
The Nimbly mat aims to improve infant motor and cognitive skills in a fun way. It makes it possible to work on various skills such as recognising colors, shapes, numbers and letters; it stimulates the memory and learning of language and math skills.
In this game, the participants are “frogs” whose only instruction is not to fall into the water. One player at a time is on the mat and starts on the waterlily line in the center of the mat. The other players and/or the adult use the cards delivered with the game to specify the subject to work on and the different challenges to achieve.
The aim of the game is that the player finds the right answer and moves by jumping to it. Other variants of movement are possible to develop the child’s motor skills.
The upperside of the mat, made of polyester, offers a pleasant touch and the underside, made of natural rubber, is antislip. The mat can be used both indoors and outdoors. It can also be machine-washed and can be folded or rolled up without any risk of damage.
The Nimbly kit includes 1 activity mat (183x91cm), game instructions (in 8 different languages) and 108 cards with learning materials and challenges (the level of difficulty is specified on each card).
Suitable for ages 2-10 yrs old
