Here's another Indigo Kids playability toy, the Playskool Busy Poppin' Pals. All babies love these pop up toys. Your baby will begin to learn about cause and effect, colours, shapes and different animals. It may seem less 'bells and whistles' than other toys available nowadays but babies really do enjoy the idea of manually making the animals pop out of the box. This toy is on sale for $12.50 down from $24.95.
Little ones usually are desperate to be able to tell time. It's intriguing to them. This Activity Clock from Plan Toys is designed so kids can learn to match the time on the play clock with the activity shown on the card. There are some basic activity cards and 3 blank cards that parents can create with their child, based on different family activities. This toy is a good visual reminder for kids to understand the concept of time, and it can help them to understand that some activities have to be done as a regular routine. The price on this clock is $28 down from $34.95. It's well crafted to last for years.
There is a selection of 2 Melissa & Doug Play Mats for the kids, they are $21 down from $29.95. I can't say enough about these play mats, they work for a lot more than cars. They work for LEGO and shopkins and more. ;)
