Sensory Fan Toy


Two plastic fan ‘blades’ - one containing five multi-coloured lights - 11cm - CE certified - Battery operated - 3 x AAA batteries (not included) WARNING! Not suitable for children under three years of age. Small parts. Choking Hazard. The Sensory Stimulation Theory of Learning is based on the idea that effective learning happens when all, or a combination of, the senses are stimulated. A widely cited study by Laird (1985) quotes research that found that approximately 75% of knowledge held by adults is a direct result of seeing, 13% can be attributed to hearing, whilst touch, smell and taste are responsible for a further 12%. According to Laird, learning can be enhanced when visual stimulation is combined with stimulation of another sense at the same time. The Fantastik’s brightly spinning lights stimulate vision, whilst the whirling fan blades create a sensation of wind which the user can not only feel on their skin but can also control by safely interrupting the motion if they wish. This ability to stop the movement of the Fantastik helps to support cognitive development as the user can learn the direct correlation between the action of their finger holding the blade and the motion and lights stopping.

Takes 3 AAA batteries, not included. Quite attractive, but if child touches blade while in operation, the small central part flies off. Would like a sturdier model, with equally soft blades for safety.

The battery instructions on the website are wrong- oddly this toy takes two different sized batteries- 2 AAAA and 1 AAA in the middle! this caused us some inconvenience as there were no instructions anywhere to indicate this and we had to go out and buy two different sets of batteries. Please make this clearer for future buyers!!

Excellent idea for children with sensory needs. My nephew gets very hot so loves fans but we can't normally leave him with one as he would cut his fingers and bonus he loves lights.

This item is not suitable for children with special needs. I bought this as a Christmas gift for a friends 10 year old child who is physically disabled. As designed she was attracted to the lights and went to grab them, however, as she touched them the wings came away from the wand. She would never be allowed to have this fan without parental assistance.
