– Classic wooden toy for small tots
It’s funny how with a cupboard full of toys, only a few truly capture a child’s imagination. And there’s no telling ahead of time which it will be. But, if it’s a Galt Classic, the odds are probably in your favour.
This toy certainly caught junior’s attention and has done for months. Four brightly coloured little wooden men slotted into a small wooden block pop up and down on concealed springs. It’s perfectly sized for little hands to hold and manipulate (and makes good chewing for sore gums). At first our little ace would hold a man in each hand. Then, with pride swelling in our chests, we watched while he managed to hold two little chaps in one hand. With time, he was able to put the men in the block and now he loves to pop them up. I’m sure eventually he’ll know how to colour-code them too. But until then I am managing my OCD in other ways.
What Mini says:
Of course I know how to colour-code. But mix-up is the new match-up.
