Everybody knows what sound a cat, or a dog, or a cow, or a horse makes: meow, woof, moo, neigh! But what sound does a giraffe make, or a hippo, or a whale, or an octopus?*
Get ready to answer all of these questions when your curious toddler plays with the Wooden Animal Stack and Nest Blocks from Melissa & Doug! This set of oversized nesting wooden blocks has tons of play value, and creative kids will have a ball stacking, nesting, knocking blocks down, and inventing their own uses for the blocks.
Toddlers love to stack the blocks and knock them down, and the bigger the stack, the better, so they’ll love the enormous three-foot towers they can build! They’ll also enjoy lining the wooden blocks up in order of size, learning to nest them, and gazing at the cute full-color illustrations of animals. These blocks also teach kids about size relationships through play: not only do the Melissa & Doug Wooden Animal Stack and Nest Blocks stack in order of size, but the size of the animals printed on each side of the block corresponds to the size of the animals. So a fish stacks on a turtle, which stacks on a pig, which stacks on a lion, which stacks on an elephant… Plus, each face of each block features an animal from a different environment – farm, mountain, jungle, and water – so kids can start learning about where animals live.
And of course, because these wooden stacking blocks are also hollow wooden boxes, kids will think of tons of other uses for this toy. Smaller children will put other toys in the boxes and dump them out; older kids will use them as steps, or as houses for their toys; bigger kids will find even more creative uses that we haven’t thought of yet. The Melissa & Doug Wooden Animal Stack and Nest Blocks are a wildly versatile toy that stimulates your child’s imagination and has plenty to teach. Includes 8 sturdy wooden blocks; for ages two and up.
* We looked it up: apparently giraffes bleat. Hippos bellow, rumble, roar, and growl. Whales sing. Octopi are silent, so they can sneak up and tickle scuba divers.
