Kukkia Wakka Water Toy
Hand this eye-catching, open-ended gaming toy to kids who may be used to digital entertainment, or anyone who could use more play in their life (adults included!). The goal of Kukkia’s Wakka water toy is to try to get all the hoops onto the spikes by pushing the buttons. Sure, it seems like just fun and games, but kids actually practice a variety of important skills, from problem solving and hand-eye coordination to perseverance and patience. Did we mention there are star sequins? Just thought we should.
