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 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 colours, shapes, numbers and letters; it stimulates the memory and learning of language and maths skills.
In this game, the participants are "frogs" whose only instruction is not to fall into the water. One player is on the mat at a time and starts on the water lily line in the centre of the mat. The cards delivered with the game specify the subject matter and the different challenges to be achieved.
The aim of the game is therefore for the player to find the right answer and to move by jumping accordingly. Other variants of movement are possible to further develop the child's motor skills.
The top of the mat, made of polyester, offers a pleasant touch and the underside, made of natural rubber, is non-slip. The mat can be used both indoors and outdoors. It can also be machine-washed and can be folded or rolled up without the risk of damage.
The Nimbly kit includes 1 activity mat (183 x 91cm), game instructions (in 8 languages) and 108 cards with learning materials and challenges (the degree of difficulty is specified on each card).
