Babies love the fun and repetition of put-and-take play. It’s fun for baby to put the blocks in the bucket one by one, and then exciting to dump the bucket so all the blocks come tumbling out—over and over and over again! And while they’re having fun, they’re exercising important developing skills, too, like eye hand coordination (and other motor skills as they grasp, put, take and dump!), and thinking and problem solving skills.
Baby’s First Blocks is a fun way for you to extend play into an early-learning opportunity for baby, introducing baby to colors, counting and shapes as you play together. As baby puts blocks into the bucket, identify colors (“That block is red…”), shapes (“Look, that’s a triangle!”), and counting, as baby puts all 10 blocks into the bucket one by one. Pretty soon you’ll be able to ask baby to find a red block, or a triangle block—and even count!
Baby’s First Blocks “grows” with baby’s developing skills! When baby’s ready for a little more challenge, the shape sorter lid fits right on top of the bucket for sorting and matching play. Five shaped openings encourage baby to match shape blocks to the openings, and then fit them through the lid to drop into the bucket. And when baby’s done, of course it’s fun to dump the bucket and do it all again!
