Mega Bloks Build N Discover Stacker £5.49 @ Play
I think little toys like this are great for young babies and toddlers who are just getting to grips with the world around them.
I love that the Mega Bloks Build n Discover stacker is simple; simple with lots of learning opportunities too.
The principle is a very basic - stack the blocks in order and make a wobbly tower that rocks side-to-side.
There are five shapes for sorting and stacking and a rattle block too, well you have to some noise in there somewhere!
Each block is numbered so you can teach your child early number recognition; they're brightly coloured so you can teach colours too and each block is a different shape, so you can teach shapes as well.
There are also six extra Maxi blocks in the rocking storage buckets for hours of building play, just for fun when you're little one (aged one or over) is all 'learned out' and just wants to build towers so they can knock them down.
