CleverstiX

CleverstiX
And finally, something really interesting for messy little ones. CleverstiX helps to improve eating habits and because CleverstiX act like an extension of a child’s fingers, children find them very natural to use. Rather than playing with their food during mealtimes, kids have fun concentrating on the challenge of picking up food with their toy-like device - all the while intensely building hand motor strength – meaning less dropped food and less mess to deal with!
But CleverstiX don’t only provide a valuable help at mealtimes, they're also a great, original gift that kids enjoy, and are also loved by parents!
