Karen Katz Peek and Play Cubes
( Small World Toys $40 Score: )

You probably know Karen Katz's wonderful books for babies. Now she’s designing toys. At first this set looks like a counting/color matching toy, but hold on! Before they are ready for counting and matching, this is going to be fun for filling and dumping games and where is the chick? Babies like toys with multiple pieces that can be passed from hand to hand. Each little fabric cube comes with one to five shapes that match the number on the outside. They are also color coded for playing color-naming games. The green cube has one ball, orange cube has two checkered hearts, blue has three fish, red has four strawberries and yellow has five little chicks. Chances are the pieces will go lost before you are ready for serious counting/color games. But go ahead and talk about them by color and count them from time to time. Just avoid turning this or any toy into a drill and practice work time. Playtime doesn’t need to be a lesson at every turn. All the pieces are washable.
