Wooden Boat with Large Peg Dolls
For young learners, sometimes the most fun play activity is placing objects in a vessel, taking them out, and doing it all over again. Repetitive play is how toddlers learn cause and effect, and they’ll love putting these peg dolls into the wooden boat and letting them set sail in water—this boat really floats! We’re big believers that bath-time offers rich opportunities for learning because water is a terrific sensory material for young explorers and helps introduce them to fundamental concepts. Watch them turn into scientists as they discover buoyancy and storytellers as they tell you where this boat is sailing to. Whether in the bathtub, kiddie pool or on dry land, this toy helps engage kiddo’s cognitive and physical systems.
