On the toddler’s shelf:
Shape sorter and lacing beads.
Rainbow peg people and box with holes for the peg people and cups to fit through.
Old-fashioned clothespins on the edge of a metal basket. Rings on a horizontal bar.
He loves this TAG toy and plays with it for long periods on end. I only have the 1,2, and 3 board out for him. He sticks the pegs in, pulls the knob on the right and watches the pegs fall through.
A pouring activity on the left, and threading spools onto the dowel on the right.
He also has four puzzles that stay out all the time on another shelf under the farm.
He plays a lot with the farm animals. (I looked for a link at Target.com where I bought the farm, but they don’t sell our version anymore.)
