Why is lacing useful?
Lacing is one of the types of educational games for children from 8 months. A distinctive feature of the game is the presence of lace and lacing items. Actions with such toys contribute to the development of fine movements of the fingers (fine motor skills), as well as the development of the child's speech. In psychology, a study is well known that established the relationship between the level of speech development and fine motor skills: the more developed fine motor skills, the more perfect the child's active speech. This dependence is explained by the fact that about a third of the entire area of the motor projection in the cerebral cortex is occupied by the projection of the hand, located very close to the speech motor zone. It is this fact that led scientists to the idea that the training of fine movements of the fingers has no less effect on the development of active speech than direct speech communication between a child and an adult.
The idea of an educational game - lacing - was invented and implemented many years ago by Maria Montessori, the author of the popular developmental technique named after her, the Montessori technique. Since then, entertaining lace-up games have become popular among adults and children all over the world. Lacing also attracts many parents because they can be made on their own from scrap materials and tools.

Information about production, delivery, packaging:
The set is made of wood and natural oil. There is a faint smell of natural oil. The child can play with it and take it in the mouth.
Oil-treated surfaces are safe for contact with skin, saliva, food. Does not contain solvents. Therefore, we paint our toys with our fingers, without gloves!
The uniqueness of the oil coating is that each part absorbs oil differently and is colored depending on the structure of the wood. Therefore, there cannot be identical details in color, transitions from dark to light are visible.
Oil composition: a mixture of processed, modified vegetable oils (linseed, safflower, walnut oil), silver-based biocide. WITHOUT SICCATIVES!
Our toys are handmade. The model is the same, but each toy is different. Each item is handmade and will be slightly different from the photo. I'll tell you how toys can differ from each other and from photos:
1. Color. I create the colors myself. Colors may be faded because we use natural oils. The color shades differ from the wood structure: smooth or porous wood surface. The tree itself absorbs oil as much as possible. If we don't have any color, we can replace it with a very similar color.
2. Structure. Oil does not paint over the wood structure. Oils show all irregularities, knots, wood rings, wood overflows, roughness, and others.
Size 3. Handmade toys may vary in size. The discrepancy can be about 10% of the indicated size.
4. Defects. There may be minor defects in our toys. This is a sign of handmade work. For example, oil does not fit evenly, small dents in the wood, roughness, etc. Do not paint over. Such nuances can be, they do not affect the use of toys. We do not have a goal of making perfect toys, we have a goal of creating interesting and unique toys for children.
5. Supplied in secure packaging. Individual gift wrapping is paid separately.
Our toys are painted with oil and can be washed with warm water and a little soap. Dry the toys with a towel after washing. Toys should not be left in water or dried on radiators.
