Every parent of an infant knows how difficult it is to find safe non-plastic toys for your little ones. Finding safe plastics can be a challenge since most companies don't put the recycle code on the toy, so you don't know what you are getting. Stacking is an important concept for little ones to master, and I had the most difficult time finding one that wasn't plastic. Of course a infant is going to gnaw on the rings or "taste" them, so plastic just wasn't an option for us. That's why I was so excited when I found a Kushies Boa Stacker when E was a baby!
The Kushies Boa Stacker with Ring Sounds is an interactive stacker with each ring making animal noises when pressed. Each ring has a different texture promoting visual and sensorial stimulation. The funny head congratulates your child once the stacking is complete and it also giggles when pressed. The Kushies Boa Stacker, part of the Zolo line, has won multiple awards for being one of the best infant toys. Ella loved playing with her Boa Stacker and then used the rings as bracelets as she got older. It's great for tactile stimulation, dexterity, exploratory play, fine motor skills, and hand-eye coordination.
You can purchase the Kushies Boa Stacker at their online store for $39.99 or test your luck and win it at Mkokopelli's Best Eco-Friendly Toy Week!
