Thari Kalai gives children the freedom to experiment with visual and tactile creations. The magnets allow children to use vertical spaces like the refrigerator or an old cupboard to play alone or collaboratively with others in the family. Arranging and rearranging the unique shapes, helps open their minds to how one shape can represent many things - the feet of an animal can become the crown of the prince! Arranged within a frame, children can create textured landscapes, awakening different ways of perceiving and enjoying the world.
Products that stimulate the use and development of vision in infancy should always consider the overall developmental goals of the infant's age. This kit was developed as a package to help infants with vision impairment achieve major developmental milestones through the first year of life. Vision development is supported by using materials that are attractive and easy for them to see, and by providing a tactile element to all visual contours so that they start to understand what they are seeing, even if the image is not very clear. The toys are attractive and useful to all babies and stay a favorite through the first 2 years of life. A set comprises 5 items – Play mat, Face Puppet, Glove Puppet, Easy Hold Ball, and Baby Doll.

This book was written primarily for parents and other caregivers of young children who cannot see well. But it should not be their task alone to deal with the needs of their children. By making blindness a community issue, it is possible to lighten the extra burden carried by parents of blind children, begin to eliminate the causes of blindness, and help children who are blind grow up to be active community members.
Ramu's holiday was more exciting than usual. There was a python in the house! Everyone tells him something about the python, but nothing could prepare him for what was to come...
Told through vivid illustrations and simple text that take into consideration the needs of the hearing impaired, Python! primarily addresses the abilities and needs of the hearing impaired by using 'word families' to enable language acquisition.
