Please be patient with us should your order take a little longer. Please do give us a call or email should you have any questions.
Do you sell abroad?

What can I put in a Chatty Magpie?
This resource has been designed to truly fit with the child’s needs. You can place anything in. Be this: objects, pictures, words, toys, foam letters or numbers. Generally 10 items is felt to be a good starter number but as said before the Chatty Magpie is there for the child. Therefore, what the child needs will govern how many things you place in the box.
Can a child use a Chatty Magpie on their own?
Chatty Magpie is an educational resource not a toy. Therefore, an adult should be present when completing the activities.
WARNING! Not suitable for children under 36 months. Choking Hazard - Small Parts
WARNING! This is not a toy. This is a resource intended for use for educational purposes in schools/nurseries and other pedagogical contexts, which is to be used under direct supervision of an adult always.
What pens do you use with the Colour Coded Language resources?
Over the years, we have used a variety of pens. However, the ones yoohoo therapists tend to use are the Show-me Slim Drywipe Pens - Medium Tip. The pack of 10 assorted are great as they contain all the colour coded language colours. You will find there is a brown within this pack. As colour coded language does not use a brown, yoohoo therapists tend to use it to support punctuation. How you use the brown is entirely up to you. Yoohoo Ltd has no affiliation with the company Show-me or the sites which sell the pens.
Why have the dudes not got facial features?
The dudes were trialled with a number of young children with a variety of speech, language and communication challenges. When the dudes had features the children related to them personally. Initially this was encouraging. However, some children began to assign likes and dislikes to dudes. Some started to give the dudes ‘names which distracted them from the dudes’ actual job. By simply removing the features the students did not personify the dudes. The dudes enhanced the colour code. Their positioning and colour supporting the language form.
