I bought this for $2.21 as an Add-On with Amazon. I didn't expect much for that price, but was pleased when I received it. Use the hollow hammer to bang and pick up each colored cup in sequence. You do not have to hammer hard for the cups to stick together, and they are easy to pull apart. The pattern cards are different from your typical bottom to top sequence, starting instead at the top and working down. Follow the yellow arrow. The pieces are lightweight plastic, but not flimsy. The animal pictures on the top of the cups are stickers. Satisfying for kids who like to bang things. :) I don't know why the box in the picture is in German, the one I bought, and the instructions, are in English.
- Show the person one color and ask him to remember it. Turn the card over and have him pick up that piece. Then ask him to remember two colors at a time, then three, and so on. Rehearse the colors verbally three times before turning the card over.
- Use the pattern card and line up the cones in order, without using the hammer. The pattern card is not the actual size of the cups, it is smaller. Therefore you will not be able to line them up exactly side by side with the card.
- Randomly pick up three cones with the hammer. Now look through the pattern cards and look for that sequence embedded on one of the cards.
- Place the cones in positions so that the individual will have to cross midline to pick them up.
