Senses come alive as little ones sit down to play. Sized just right for them, the Country Critters Play Cube by Hape is a playground for the mind, fingers, eyes and ears! Five sides present unique play adventures. Kiddos keep busy for hours:
Bead Mazes: On the top surface, 3 colorful wire mazes with little wooden fish get fine motor and finger skills swimming in the right direction. Push the beads around the wires, over a wooden frog in the center, into his mouth, and through the tree.
Ball Roller Coaster: Line up 3 critter balls in the cutout circles on top. Using the included hammer, give them a pound...excitement starts rolling! Balls spin down the side track. Cause and effect, visual stimulation and pure fun. Little hands are busy over, over and over again.
Shape Sorter: Shapes, colors and critters—blue square, pink triangle, red heart, green cross and yellow pentagon. Big eyes and mouths smile back from the shape blocks. Push them through the spaces and hear them "clink" as they fall inside. Little hands reach through the opening and to do it again and again.
Color Match: Six colorful critters are navigated around the wooden maze. Return each animal to their 'home' color or stack them up in the order shown on the side. Visual recognition, colors and categorization start moving.
Rotating Maze: Give it a spin and listen as the enclosed honeycomb maze spins round and round. Wooden bees are abuzz with coordination and concentration. Land the bees on little honeycomb shelves. What a sweet delight!
All the cute little shapes and animals are adorably painted with bright colors and bold graphics with large, animated eyes. Made of sturdy wood with water-based paint, it’ll stand up to years of fun.
