Lamaze My First Fish Bowl

Babies can explore the interesting textures and sounds of a rattling star fish, a crinkly crab, a jingly fish, and a squeaky crab. All come in a fabric fish bowl with clear vinyl sides for filling and dumping.  EDITORS' NOTE: This toy has been slightly downsized since we first reviewed it. The product is now trimmed in yellow, not blue.

The clear vinyl sides of the fabric fishbowl make it easy to see what's inside and the big opening make for good filling and dumping games. ACTIVITY: Use the fishbowl for other fill and dump games. A bunch of colored socks will fit in easily and be fun to pull out one by one. Put several little toys inside and count them one by one as your tot pulls them out.
