1. 1 cork board

2. Encourage your child to try, but supervise closely.

Additional Information:

J (2Y5M25D) tried it today and loved it! Initially, I thought J would be too young for this, and that this could be a little unsafe. But J was very good in being careful and using it the way it is meant to be used. It was no problem at all. J tried this again on 8 October 2011.
