  • We've taken the classic pounding toy to new heights! Knock the four brightly colored balls through the holes, then watch and listen as they roll down the ramps. Sturdy wooden hammer included.
  • Pound the eight colorful wooden pegs into the wooden frame, then flip it over to repeat the activity again and again! Included are a wooden hammer and four pairs of pegs--great for color matching.
  • Children will delight in sending this little toy rolling off again and again! It's delightfully simple to set in motion: Just push down on the center ball to flatten the inchworm, then let it go--the wheels spring into motion as the center "inches" up again. The rubber treads roll smoothly on almost any surface--babies and toddlers will love seeing it zoom from room to room as they crawl or toddle behind, building muscle strength and gross motor skills as they play. Bright colors, rattling wheels, a click-and-turn plush head, and a shake-and-squeak plush tail engage other senses, too, encouraging young children to explore first concepts, build developmental skills, and have a wonderful time playing with this sweet, smiley inchworm.

  • Wheel them back to get new skills speeding ahead! The "rev up" mechanism inside each of these four cars and trucks makes it easy for babies and toddlers to get big acceleration with just a little input: Pull back one of the soft vehicles--then release to see it zoom off across the floor! The action of grasping and pulling back is great for fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination; the activity of "driving" and collecting (pull, release, crawl) benefits large muscle groups and coordination, too. Get even more "miles per gallon" with a variety of colors, shapes and sizes, illustrated characters, and everyday themes to inspire conversations, cognitive connections, and imaginative play! These soft fabric vehicles are bound to be popular at playtime, but with four exciting vehicles there are enough to share. And parents and caregivers will be grateful for the removable wipe-clean wheelie insert and washable fabric surface!
