Basic Rack a stack
The basic rack a stack comes in bright shiny colors and swirling beads that help to stimulate the visual development in babies. When the babies try to place the rings on the post, it helps in improving hand-eye coordination. The babies are able to learn differentiating among colors and various sizes of the rings. As the babies’ rock and bat the toy, it enhances gross motor skill and the hands-on activity is useful in strengthening the sense of touch among them.
All babies enjoy the fun and repetitive process of putting the blocks and rings in and out. Babies enjoy stacking the rings or putting the blocks one by one and then are excited to dump these out and again repeat the process. All this time when they are enjoying themselves, the continuous activity is beneficial in improving important developmental skills like eye-hand coordination, problem solving capabilities, and thinking abilities.
Early learning opportunity
Exposing your baby to the basic blocks and rack a stack is an entertaining way to extend their play to an early opportunity to learn. Babies can be introduced to different colors, shapes, and sizes as you play along with them. Moreover, you can teach them counting skills as they put the blocks in the right slot or place the right ring on the post. As the babies grow and are able to accept little bigger challenges, the shape sorter lid can be fitted on the bucket top to encourage them to sort and match the right shapes to the appropriate slot. The various sized openings entice the baby to match the block to the opening and fit them correctly. When all the shapes are sorted and rings placed on the post, these can be inverted and dumped to repeat the entire process.
