    We use the Starfish Switch It game - CVC Words in our specialist tutoring centre here at Starfish.

    It is the perfect card game for learners beginning their literacy journey. This fun and quick game involves decoding consonant vowel consonant words. There is a bonus gold level for introducing common consonant digraphs.

    If your child knows many of the common sounds of the alphabet, then they can start playing this game.  It is a fabulous way to learn and master decoding (reading). It encourages blending sounds together to read words. 

    Shuffle the cards and deal each player 7 cards. The remainder are placed face down on the table with one card flipped up. Players take turns placing a card on the discard pile (by colour or number) but must read their word first in order to complete their turn. If they do not have a suitable card, they may play a switch it card (to change the colour) if they have one in their hand. Otherwise they'll need to pick another card up from the deck.  

    First player to get rid of all their cards, wins!

    The Starfish Switch It game - CVC Words is ideally suited to small groups, one to one or as a family game. It is quick, fun and IT WORKS. Anyone can use it from classroom teachers, specialist teachers, tutors, parents and grandparents.

    If your child knows the alphabet and you don't know where to go next with their phonics learning, this is the game for you!

Amazing quality!

We purchased the Harkla sensory swing for my daughter. It’s such wonderful quality. The material is so soft and it was easy to install. Thanks Starfish for another great product. All the kids love this one.

Just what we needed then and now!

Having been a teacher, I always browsed and purchased educational products from the previous shop in Kiama.

Now, as a grandparent I continue to love to visit your expanded business. I am keen to view new toys or regulation products to support my grandchildren’s needs. I have always found your staff knowledgeable,...

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...

ÔĽŅMy daughter is a sensory seeker and seeks oral feedback and stimulation, we‚Äôve 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!
