Tomy Hide 'n' Squeak Eggs
Advantages: A toy that can be played with in different ways according to the age of the child
Disadvantages: Tricky for little fingers to open the box.
This is a cheap and cheerful toy that all pre-school kids seems to love. They are so versatile that the level of play can vary from a baby holding something tactile to a two stage shape sorting toy.
***What you get***
An egg box with 6 eggs in it. Each white egg shell has funny face and is 'cracked' around the middle. The top comes off to reveal a brightly coloured inside with a matching funny face. There are 3 different colours, so two eggs of each colour. The base of each egg has a protuding shape (circle; star; triangle; cross; square or heart) which fits into the corresponding hole in the bottom of the egg box. And if you push the coloured parts of the egg down you are rewarded with a squeak.
***The developmental possibilities***
This toy is marketed as suitable from 12 months. Both mine have enjoyed playing with it from a much earlier age. The eggs are the perfect size and shape for little hands and are great for sucking and chewing on! Once baby gets older you can begin matching the shapes on the bottom of the eggs to the shapes in the egg box. Once they've mastered that you can encourage them to make sure each egg has the correct shell on by matching the faces. There is also colour matching, and like almost any toy....counting!
This toy has been a constant in our house since my daughter was given it at around 9 months. Most toys get relegated to a box/shelf at some point, whether its for a few weeks, a few months or forever! Before having baby number two I put this away several times, thinking she had outgrown it. But she would very quickly find it and get it out again. It now lives in the fridge of her toy kitchen and she cracks the eggs into her mixing bowl when she's making us all a cake!
Summary: This toy usually costs around a fiver.....you will definitely get your money's worth!!
