Fisher Price Peek-a-Blocks
Advantages: Gr8 learning aids for children aged 3 months to 3 years!
Disadvantages: Can be pricey for a small set
Peek-a-blocks made by Fisherprice - one of the most trusted names in quality toys.
Peek-a- blocks are small cubes with clear plastic windows, small enough for a baby to grasp and big enough for a baby to see all the magical things peek-a-blocks holds. Usually aged from 6 months to 3 years.
Peek-a-blocks can be brought from most leading toy stores, my highly recommended shop for these is Woolworths. You will find a whole range and decent prices in Woolworths.
Peek-a-blocks usually come in a pack of 6 with a certain theme to each set for example touch and feel or sound blocks. The prices vary, usually £5.99 for a six pack, but you can buy packs with more in them and obviously the prices increase from there.
Why they are good for your baby:
Develops motor skills for baby as they enhance hand and eye coordination, as the baby grasps and stacks the blocks. The baby explores different materials and textures which also helps fine motor skills. Visual stimulation is used when the baby is spinning mirrors or moving objects within the blocks. Also encourages thinking skillls by learning between different objects, problem solving wondering how to stack and build.
Each set of blocks come in many different themes for example touch senstion blocks, these are squishy, bumpy soft and hard each with different textures to touch and feel. All materials are safe for the baby some are made of cotton, silk and felt.
Barnyard animals are inside another themed set of peek-a-blocks including animals such as pigs and sheep.
Sound sensation blocks have differnt sounds when you shake them like squeeking and the block with a bell in it has a ding dong noise.
There are quite a few different themed blocks (too many to list) each come in there own little set, but if you decide to buy more than one set they can all be combined together.
Each side of the cubes there is something to discover even the flat part you place down has a rubbery feel. Some have knobs to turn and buttons to press, some you just simply shake to get your lovely surprise.
Each block is different and holds a different and delightful surprise for you baby. With spinning motions, shiny mirrors and different textures!
My favourite set of peek-a-blocks that I have come across is the alphabet blocks I havent yet brought but im sure it will be a future buy. My child is a bit young for these at the moment, there are 26 blocks each inside a letter of the alphabet and an object to match, for example letter A and an apple inside. I think these will be great when my child is older as im sure we will have soooo much fun learning the abc's.
Each block in all sets are so colouful and imaginative
You'll want to collect them all!
Fisherprice have made a whole big range of peek-a-blocks and they have become very popular.
You can now by shape sorters with peekablocks and pull along trucks all with peekablocks. You can fit your peek-a-blocks into the truck for it to make wonderfull sounds. The shape sorter set comes with pee-a-blocks made in different shapes for your baby to sort into the right hole.
My first purchase in this range wasent peek-a-blocks but roll arounds. Roll arounds are made on the same basis of the blocks but are little balls of fun. Each of the balls has different sounds and objects inside for you to explore but you cant actually feel these just see them. I brought a funfair kind of game which came with the roll arounds, you place each roll around at the top press a lever and watch as the roll around whizzes round and round and shoots out at the end, whilst fun sounds come from the funfair ride.
In my opinion peek-a-blocks are great for kids and helps them learn so much! I would definatly recommened as they are great educatinal toys to be used from a young age. You baby will have fun touching and feeling then as she grows watch her be able to distinguish the differnt objects inside.
On the other hand although they are very good for your baby I do think they can be quite pricey, I would recommend to look on ebay or Amazon for cheaper prices.
Summary: great toys to help baby learn.
