Offering both physical and cognitive challenges, Pound and Play will help your child build his or her accuracy and coordination. Your baby will enjoy banging and pounding on the balls to make them pop out into the base. There is a moment of suspense that reinforces the concept of object permanence, demonstrating to your baby that objects exist even if they can't be seen. This toy will fascinate your baby, and inspire them to repeat their actions, which reinforces their learning. Recommended for ages 12 months to 36 months.
