Manhattan Toy Bam Stack-A-Lacka
(Manhattan Toy $14.99)
A new look for post and stack play. Instead of the traditional size order rings to fit on a post, this Bam Stack-A-Lacka, is a wooden toy that comes with five angled wooden blocks that can fit on the post in a variety of ways. Sometimes they won’t all fit, sometimes they will. There’s a lot of trial and error and no really right or wrong way to play. It’s a good choice for developing fine motor, visual skills and the creative fun of experimenting—something that's often missing in toys that have only one way solutions. Also, similar, but with rounder pieces, Boom Shock-A-Locka ($14.99). They say 1 and up. We say this is for much older preschoolers. These are way too difficult for ones and most twos.
Ages: Older Toddlers, Preschoolers
