Toddlers love to push things around the house, and of course make as much noise as possible while doing it. PlanToys Push Along Elephant is an adorable little push toy that will have your toddler squealing with delight as they race around the house with their favorite new pachyderm. It even makes a sweet sound as it's "feet" roll across the floor.
Another great motor-skill-developing toy is PlanToys Balancing Monkeys. Your little one will have fun hanging monkeys on a cute little tree, and they will also learn about balance as the tree will sway from side to side if more monkeys are placed on one side than the other. You will both have hours of fun as you calculate how the monkeys should be spaced in order to keep the tree balanced and level!
