The Anatex Deluxe Mini Play Cube is a Parent’s Choice Gold Medal Winner… and the prize in well deserved. This 12 x 12 x 24 inch cube has fun activities on all sides, and a bead roller coaster on the top! It is like having five toys in one! It’s made from natural, high quality solid wood, and painted in bright eye-pleasing colors to attract baby’s attention. There are gears for moving and spinning. There is a pathfinder, where baby can move pieces along carved pathways. There are alphabet blocks that spin, so when baby is little, it’s fun to just move them. When baby gets older, he can learn his letters. On one side are counting beads that look a bit like an abacus. The colored beads can be slid along the wires, and as baby ages, it becomes a counting toy. My kids always loved the bead rollercoaster best. Truly, they spent hours moving the beads back and forth, over and under and through. Your baby can learn colors, tracking, basic math and gain hand eye coordination. This toy is great for a waiting room or in a preschool or day care since a few kids can easily play on it at once. The Mini play cube is easy to clean, just wipe it down with your choice of cleaner. Some easy assembly is required.
