There is pretty much nothing about this that George doesn't love! He even likes to carry the box round with him using the handy little handle. He has great fun tipping it all out, packing it all away, and tipping it out again! 20 months old. This is what he likes to do!
Learning Through Play
He loves it when I come and play this game with him. His bigger brothers play it with him too. He's picked up the idea of matching the two bits of each vehicle and spends ages trying to line them up perfectly. You can see him working on his motor skills as well as recognising which front end goes with which back end. We've been playing a game where we say the name of each vehicle as we pick a piece up and then make the noise to go with it. Georgie figured out the matching pairs quicker this way. We're even working on his basic counting when we tidy up at the and of play (although to George every number is either "2" or "8").
Since he's only 20 months I can't say that we've had "hours of fun" with this yet. His attention span is typical for a toddler of his age. But he does want to play with it every day, more than once a day. This morning after his breakfast he went straight to where the games are kept and jumped up and down, pointing at his Galt Baby Puzzles and shouting "Brum! Brum!" until I got it down for him. He promptly tipped it on to the floor and started to look for pairs.
How much is this?
Change from a fiver, endless fun, and it's helps babies and toddlers with recognition, motor skills, problem solving, plus a limitless number of other skills when you get involved and play games with them. You can't go wrong!
