What It Is

What It Is

My Busy Town is a wooden activity cube with five sides of colorful, manipulative activities that will engage babies as they develop important basic skills. On top there are curvy bead mazes. On one side there are spin-and-match animal blocks. Kids spin the top and bottom blocks until they match. Another side has racing rollers, which are wooden cars that can be pushed up and down the wavy tracks. On another side there are turn and learn ABC tiles. One side of the tile has a letter and the other side shows a word and a picture that starts with that letter. For example, on the other side of the B tile is the word "bee" and a picture of a bee. The final side has peek-a-boo doors. Open up the doors to see who is hiding behind them. There are four doors behind which are a mailman, baker, fireman, and doctor.

Why It’s Fun

There is a lot to keep kids busy and engaged with My Busy Town. This is great for inspiring imaginative play. All the bright colors and patterns offer visual stimulation. And each side, in different ways, helps children develop fine motor skills.

Who It’s For

My Busy Town is for ages 1 and up.

What to Be Aware of

My Busy Town measures 16 inches tall, 12 inches wide, and 12 inches in length.

This is a fairly expensive toy, but it offers a great deal of activities, and is a sturdy, high-quality toy that today's curious infants will very likely be able to pass on to their own babies.
