Box 6: The Thinker (Months 11-12)
As baby is quickly transforming into a toddler this box has everything to stimulate their problem solving skills. Complete with baby’s first wallet including cards and wooden coins for baby to zip and carry. A beautiful wooden box that has a sliding top to teach baby to problem solve how to drop a ball into the hole and get the ball back out.
To explore opposites there are two identical appearing balls of very different weights, these are also excellent for sink vs float exploration. Helping baby practice the pincher grasp a small puzzle is included to work on their fine motor skills. Packed full of incredible variety, I love this box! Additional items include stacking stones, a wonderful baby doll, and a mini book.
