Fun and Function is an online store with a large inventory of fun toys and they specializes in toys, games, and therapy items for children with special needs. They really work to have some cool, fun, functional education items for children at affordable prices. It was launched in 2005 by Aviva Weiss, a pediatric occupational therapist and her husband after they found out one of their own children was diagnosed with a sensory processing disorder. In searching for materials to work with their own child they found that there was a lack of kid friendly products with high prices. By creating this website with a large number of kid friendly, fun, and educational products Weiss and her husband have opened the door for so many other parents and therapists.
The Ready, Set, Stilts are made by Alex Toys. They are adjustable for different heights so they grow with your child. They come with two different sets of feet for your child's growing abilities too. They have soft grip handles. The stilts are for ages 5 years and up and can hold up to 110 pounds. Children learn balance, control, strength, and coordination.
We put the stilts together and let Jayden try them out. Since the heat shows no signs of letting up here, we decided to try them out in the house. Jayden was excited to get started. He went in search of his helmet since the boy on the box is wearing a helmet. Jayden got started with John's help. At first he let John do the work to move it, but soon figured out what to do. I walked with him some and really I was mostly there just to help him balance. The top of the stilts have cushion handles at the top, making it nice for parents to hold on and help a child lead the way. I also took a turn helping him walk around. The handles at the top really helped me out as the parent and I didn't have to bend over to help. Jayden is getting better at using them, but will need more practice.
