Cogs and Gears is a stimulating and tactile activity which has proven to be a real success with people with dementia due to the stunning visual effect. Alter and change the cogs and gears to make your own system, then set the wheels in motion. A fun game which can help activate thinking and logical thinking skills in older people. Highly contrasting brightly coloured pieces make this good for anyone with a sight impairment too. 49 cogs and gears with interlocking base plates.
Have fun building all sorts of 3D structures and colourful mazes. Simply interlock the 4 types of tubes for endless configurations. Great tactile and visual game for all abilities. See video below:
For anyone who likes a challenge, our Ring Stacking With A Twist Activity is just the thing! The task is to distribute the rings on the three bars according to the illustration. The trick is that the rings may only be pushed and not lifted off the bars. A very nice brain teaser, because several steps have to be thought out and implemented in advance. Makes a great activity for older people in care homes as it incorporates logical thinking, hand/eye coordination, fine motor skills and concentration. An unusual boredom-buster gift for anyone who has an older relative.
Our House of Locks is ideal for men who enjoy manual tasks. Helps to practice and retain fine motor skills and gives great scope for conversation. See video below:
