From the time children are born, they are immersed in a rich pool of language; and so the ability to distinguish and recognise their own name is a significant milestone. It is a first step towards self-recognition.For every child their name is special and one of the most important words. It is probably one of the first word that your child will learn to read, spell and write. This personalised Cater-speller, available in 6 different colours, is going to make name-recognition even more special and fun for your little one. The brightly-coloured Cater-speller will captivate your child’s attention and introduce them to the letters in their name in a playful way. As the letters are attached to the wooden pegs using Velcro, this provides your little one with ample opportunities to practise spelling their name, whilst also developing their fine motor skills. What’s more - make your little one feel special and loved by sticking their photograph in the space provided.
