Not suitable for children under three years of age. Small parts. Choking Hazard. The Sensory Stimulation Theory of Learning is based on the idea that effective learning happens when all, or a combination of, the senses are stimulated. A widely cited study by Laird (1985) quotes research that found that approximately 75% of knowledge held by adults is a direct result of seeing, 13% can be attributed to hearing, whilst touch, smell and taste are responsible for a further 12%. According to Laird, learning can be enhanced when visual stimulation is combined with stimulation of another sense at the same time. The Fantastik’s brightly spinning lights stimulate vision, whilst the whirling fan blades create a sensation of wind which the user can not only feel on their skin, but can also control by safely interrupting the motion if they wish. This ability to stop the movement of the Fantastik helps to support cognitive development as the user can learn the direct correlation between the action of their finger holding the blade and the motion and lights stopping.
