Plan Toys Clapping Roller
( Plan Toys $39.99 Score: )

A slightly new look to a classic ball roll toy. This one is made of eco-friendly wood. Place a ball at the top of the run and watch it drop from one level to the next till the ball goes kurplunk at the bottom. This repetitive action is good fun for older toddlers and develops both eye hand coordination, visual tracking and the delight of making things happen. The large wooden balls store on top of the run and have a slight jingle sound as they cascade down the runway. 19 months & up. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

SNAP: This runway is a little more tippy than others. You may want to tape the base down so that it is not accidentally knocked over. That said, one of the long range skills may in fact be using it without the tape, by developing the eye hand skills to place the ball with care. Like learning to turn pages in a book with care, placing the ball on top without knocking the track may come with practice. This is a good toy for developing tracking skills and you can combine that with simple counting. Since the ball makes a distinct sound as it falls from level to level, it's fun to count one - two - three - four - as it rolls to the floor. Hearing the sound and seeing the action is a good way to reinforce beginning counting.
