Superpower Superhero Set Review
Having been sent a set of these lovely little superheroes, I was happy to note that they were wooden and brightly coloured and each had a unique character of their own which would appeal to both boys and girls. Given unusual names such as; Priya, Luna, Xander, Orva, Kenzo and Tait, which herald from different cultures and countries, makes them truly inclusive as a toy and could be useful for helping children feel that they belong even if they are different from everyone else. They all have a different ‘super power’, which can be used to help children conquer any fears and worries that they may have.
They can be identified throughout the curriculum in play, for example:
Personal, social and emotional development
- Help children to deal with feelings and worries and have a sense of belonging and empowerment.
Communication and language
- When used for ‘circle time’ they would help children to talk about their fears and what they are good at.
- They can be used to promote physical activity and planning for movement either indoors or outside.
- Children will love to hold these when it is story time and listen to stories about superheroes and conquering fears and worries. They may like to narrate their own stories too about what their superhero will do next.
- They can be used as skittles and utilised in number counting games for mathematics.
Understanding the world
- The children can discuss where they come from and what makes them special and gives them their posers.
Expressive art and design
- A fantastic imaginative toy for playing super heroes and small world play.
They are a lovely toy which could be easily held by young hands, enhance imagination and can be used with the Superhero Cape Set to expand on play and take on super hero roles for themselves.
You can purchase this award-winning Superpower Superhero Set via Early Years Resources.
