Melissa and Doug Colour Star Tumbler
BRAND: Melissa and Doug
AGE: 9+ months
Color-Star Tumbler wooden baby toy will click, clack and roll into your little one’s heart!
This baby and toddler toy is simple yet wonderful: Just roll it along or flip the flaps by hand to hear and see the colorful star panels turn round and round. It’s classically styled in smooth-sanded natural hardwood with child-safe dyes for the brightly colored star-shaped accents.
Easy to roll and manipulate, Color-Star Tumbler encourages babies and toddlers to play and explore as they develop early skills naturally.
Talk to your child about the colors and shapes you see. Describe every feature you can, pointing to each as you say its name. (“This flap is red. This flap is blue. Here is a circle with a star in the middle! Can you touch the star?”) Pause between sentences so your child can “answer” with babbles or gestures.
Move the flaps to make them rattle. Stand the toy on one end and pat the top to make sounds. Roll it along the floor so the flaps click and clack. Ask the child to move the toy and discover what noises he/she can make.
Feel the raised star on either end of the toy and talk about its texture and shape. Help the child trace the outlines of the star and circle shapes.
Recommended for young children 9 months and older.
