"Use as a game or stand-alone toy. Good for babies and toddlers alike.…"
Pop It In The Post is a wonderful toy for babies 12 months an up. In terms of aesthetics, it bright, colourful and most importantly - durable. So far ours has survived being repeatedly dropped, used as a step, and being rolled across the floor by the cat!
The concept is fairly simple - there are plastic envelopes in bright primary colours that your child can learn to slot the matching letters into. The envelopes have stamps (also plastic) which can be detached and swapped round. Then comes the really tricky bit for young ones - getting the envelope into the letter box. The toy really does help improve coordination and fine motor control - the improvement in my daughter's motor skills has been noticeable over the past few weeks.
Pop it in the post also has a fairly long 'toy life'. Slightly older children and beginner readers can use the letters and stamps to practice matching up colours, animals and numbers, as well as reading the letters. It also makes a good prop for imaginative play. I can see this toy keeping DD happy for a few years.
It comes with two dice and a booklet suggesting ways to make this more of a game than a simply toy - but really it works well as both.Read moreLess
