ELC Activity Triangle
Advantages: lots of things to keep your little one occupied with.
Disadvantages: may be a little heavy for some small ones.
For my youngest son's first Christmas he received one of these early learning centre activity triangles. I had seen them before and did rather like them but hadn't bought him one as he was a bit young. At the time of receiving it he was only three months and that is too young for this toy. It is too heavy for a young child. It is recommended for babies of six months plus and I totally agree with this. It is the next step up from soft toys and rattles; it challenges your child that little bit more.
As you would expect with a toy from elc it is well made, durable and a wonderful toy for little hands. There are lots to the toy to keep a small one amused for a good length of time.
The activity triangle is brightly coloured attracting a young one from the first moment they set eyes on it. I have to admit to putting this toy away for a bit till my son was a bit older and when I got it out he loved it. When he was trying to steady himself to sit up this was a great bribe to get him to do so. On its end it would sit nicely between his legs and he would focus on playing with it instead of wobbling over! He is now 14 months and he still gets a some enjoyment out of it. He loves to sit and moves the bits and rattles it. We often go on longish journeys to visit my sister now and this is a firm favourite to keep him amused in the car.
There are lots for your little one to do with this toy, it is a compact toy. One of the sides has little beads enclosed in it to make a rattling sound when the toy is shuck. There are different shapes to push and pull along the zigzag edges and things to twist. There is a little circle mirror on one of the ends which my son likes to look in and swivel round. When he points to it he can see his little finger in it and chuckles to himself, it's the little things that keep them amused! He also likes the big chunky balls you can slide across the side and the twisting squares you can send twisting round with a little nudge. My eldest likes to make them go faster much to my youngest enjoyment.
It will take your child time to work out what each bit does with a bit of encouragement but it is about developing their fine motor skills. There are bits my son still hasn't quite got the gasp off but that isn't from not trying. I can see this toy lasting a lot longer and giving my son more months of enjoyment.
This Christmas ours will be coming up to a year old and is still in perfect condition. It has been tested by my little destructor but elc proves itself again. There has been many times when he has thrown it from his highchair when he has had enough and just wants his dinner but not a mark to be seen!
Overall I love this toy and so does my son. Even my two and a half year old sneaks it off now and again to have a little play with it. Elc has yet again made a fantastic toy. And for thirteen pounds it makes a great present too. Not only is it fun but provides learning skills for your young child. You will find it grows with your little one.
