  • One of our all-time favourite cooperative games!

    The Peaceable Kingdom Gnomes at Night is one of our all time favourite games at Starfish. Gnomes at Night is a barrier game, often used in speech pathology to encourage communication, receptive and expressive language. It is also a valuable game to encourage hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and visual planning.

    The idea of the game is to help each other move the gnomes (which are magnetised - one on each side of the vertical board) to collect as many treasures as you can before the time runs out.

    But here's the "problem". Each player has a different maze to work through. The maze paths are different on each side of the board. You can move your gnome only along the paths on your side of the board.

    Players can't move their piece through a wall in the maze. The way to get "through" is to work together, and communicate well. You might not be able to get through but the other player might be able to because their maze pathway is different.

    What we love so much about Peaceable Kingdom Gnomes at Night is that it's a cooperative game. What this means is that players work with each other, rather than against. Playing this way promotes positive interaction and social skills.

My son loves his Connetix bought from Starfish. The Connectix helps him with his imagination and hand eye co-ordination.

I love using your products with my NDIS client. I especially find the Coko Alphabet Bricks easy to use and so helpful in promoting literacy learning skills with my client. They also double up as a great playtime activity with my 7 year old granddaughter where we see how many words we can make out of a select few...

Sending a big thank you to the lovely team at Starfish store. I’m located in Melbourne and the lady I spoke to on the phone was more then happy to give her advice regarding noise canceling ear muffs. My 2 year old son, who has sensory issues, couldn’t be more happier! They have given him such comfort in overwhelming...

My daughter is a sensory seeker and seeks oral feedback and stimulation, we’ve purchased the Ark Z Vibe Grabber and instantly my daughter was getting the input she was seeking. The staff at Starfish are extremely helpful and the prompt service and delivery is always appreciated.

We purchased the Lycra swing from Starfish. It’s great quality (thick Lycra), stretchy yet firm, and has enough material for the kids to wrap around themselves. It also takes a lot of weight so can be used for years to come. Definitely great value for money.

My 5 year old nonverbal ASD was overstimulated, we tried our usual deep pressure cuddles and reassurance however it wasn't working. We decided to give the turtle a go, and he loves it he listened to the waves and quickly calmed to the blue wave over our roof within a minute. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I write this...

Absolutely love the Whoozit Water Mat. We got it today and Liam, who doesn’t normally like water, played with it for over half an hour with a huge smile.

We played with the Connetix tiles all afternoon with no TV on (big plus in our house). The best part about it was, I am not the best at actively playing with her and I actually played with her for a decent hour or two because I find them so fascinating! Win win!

I received my LCD writing tablet and I am thrilled. So far it’s been invaluable next to my computer to write things down if needed without wasting or looking for paper. I will take it in my bag wherever I go! Thanks so much Starfish!
