Traditional game of pick-up sticks transformed into physically challenging motor skills-training equipment. The rules are the same, but the large scale of the pick-up sticks (length 1400 mm, diameter 27 mm) changes the game. One or more children hold the poles before letting them go and running away at the same time. The game is on, and the children either take turns removing poles or agree to work together, making the removing of the poles without moving the other ones a team effort. Giant Mikado is not only fun but also develops childrens physical, cognitive and social skills. Giant Mikado strengthens motor control, agility and, for the youngest players, muscle strength. At the same time it intensifies concentration and attention and also develops spatial orientation and planning skills. Giant Mikado stimulates childrens social skills, such as following rules, competing or joining forces to work together and coordinate the performance of a task.
