I can spoon®

I can Spoon®

Is the first product out from I can®. The I can spoon®. Is a unique Swedish invention that benefits children learning to eat. It enables children to hold the spoon better, and at the same time, stimulates dexterity development beyond what previously been possible.

Why is I can Spoon with its world unique multi grip

Unique flat vertical grip

The can spoon has a world unique flat vertical grip, which rises from the table surface and allows the child to take the spoon with the “tweezers grip” with two or more fingers. Many other childrens spoons encourage the use of the rather primitive whole-hand grip, a stable grip indeed, but it hardly encourages the development of motor skills as well as learning to eat.

Grip with a hole

The hole can also be used (the child naturally chooses) that provides contact between the thumb and index finger for increased stability and if the child wants it, it may pierce the thumb or index finger for a secure grip. It gives the child good opportunities for development, less mess and, above all, a happier child.

To many spoons are made for the full handgrip with the spoon in the child’s palm. I can® has a world unique flat vertical grip, which enables the child to grasp it using the precision grip. The hole in the spoon enables contact between the thumb and index finger, or if the child chooses it can put a finger through the spoon for stability. The child can use the lateral precision-, key-, finger-, transverse volar-, fivefinger- or through-thumb grip. That’s why I can® have the extension name Multi Grip and enables the child to also train their fine motor skills, which is important for their development.

Multi grip - why six different grips?

The benefits with I can spoon

The I Can multi-grip spoon permits several different grips that the child can use to practice fine motor skills. These grips are five finger-, precision-, thumb- and transverse grip, which are all much more useful grips than the “whole hand grip” that a lot of children spoons invite to.

By using the I Can multi-grip spoon, children are able to train their fingers instead of the arm, which permits an intuitive transition from eating with the hands. The hole in the I Can multi-grip spoon provides contact between the thumb and index finger for increased stability, and if the child wants it, it may put their thumb or index finger into the hole to get a secure grip.

Consumer response

It actually works!

Consumer response states it works better than the spoons on the market. Mums just love it. A child that trains its precision grip will develop its dexterity better, and learn to eat quicker. This product is a revolution mostly because it trusts the child to be able to develop, rather than forcing a certain grip upon the child.
