Spark fine motor skills, count to ten, then do it again and again with the Teaching Turtle from B. toys! This educational toy features colorful lights and fun sounds, and comes with 10 numbered pegs that help kids learn how to count. But before giving specific activities a go, encourage little ones to play around with the pegs as they please. Show them how to pop the pegs into the shell, then let them sort, push, remove, and explore freely. Playing with this colorful turtle pal can significantly improve a toddler’s fine motor skills and it can help them develop the strength they need for a firm tripod grip. And when they’re ready for learning, you can introduce counting and color-recognition activities! Ask kids how many holes they see in the turtle’s shell, call out a color and ask them to pick the pegs in that color, and so much more! 3 AAA batteries are required and included. Recommended for toddlers 18 months and over.
