Review:

The Rainbow Fish Shimmer Mosaics craft kit includes 10 double-sided background cards, and 305 colored magnetic shapes. The cleverly designed box becomes the easel and in turn, a storage/travel case with built-in handle.

After punching out the magnetic shapes, beginning artists start by selecting a pattern card and placing it on the easel. Referring to the numbered color key, (colors from red to sparkle are numbered 1 -12) children follow the numbers and place the magnetic pieces onto the pattern card and see the ocean-themed images into focus. More advanced mosaic makers will soon be piecing together their own designs.

Parents' Choice Foundation's PlayAbility Scale® rates the Rainbow Fish Shimmer Mosaics strong in building fine motor, as well as color and number recognition skills.
