The term ‘early literacy’ covers all activities which help children develop writing skills, such as scribbling, recognising shapes and colours, and hand and eye coordination. These activities help to develop motor skills and visual discernment, leading up to the difficult task of writing. That is what Lacing ABC+123 is for. By connecting letters and numbers to create chains and necklaces, children practice fine motor skills while playing. This is important in terms of cognitive and manual development, and at the same time it helps them to memorise the shapes of letters and numbers.
Quercetti: The Value of Made in Italy
70 years after it was founded, the Quercetti family is still the head of the company, following in the same principles of honesty and sharing inherited by its founder Alessandro.
The story of the company is inevitably combined with that of the family and its partners. All these people are passionate about their job, and every day they strive to improve the quality and the procedures so to make the products more competitive and so that the production line can remain in Italy.
We are indeed one of the very few companies who can be proud of controlling the production chain directly. The entire production cycle, from the design of the toy to its delivery, is carried out in Italy, in the city of Turin. Its workers reside locally, and this creates an essential resource in the region.
Today we are a modern and aware company who follow the most stringent security and sustainability rules and regulations, and who can compete with the largest of our international contemporaries. We have 70 years of history and are still going strong.
