Gifts for Babies
The See-Saw Counter
Playing with toys from a very early age brings babies comfort, familiarity, and security. Baby toys help to develop your baby’s senses of touch, smell, hearing and sight.
Babies explore the world by putting things in their mouth as a way of exploring what they have in their hands.
This then turns into recognition, understanding and confidence.
It also develops fine & gross motor skills of gripping, crawling and reaching.
This toy introduces your baby to the 4 colourful bead characters on this traditional wooden balancing toy & your baby will love exploring, sorting, stacking and counting the chunky beads onto the four pegs.
Lots of fun for little hands to explore.
