Colorful Numbers and Alphabet Stacking Cups- Educational Toys from LUCLUC
Having a daycare run in my home, there is never enough toys around to keep little ones happy. Making sure there is something for everyone makes for a better day had by all. Some of the fantastic features this simple but important toy offers is it lends itself to teach smaller children about not only colours, but The start of the alphabet, how to count, learning small from big and helping with fine motor skills. The plastic is a durable heavy duty plastic with rounded edges so the child has nothing to hurt themselves on. The parts are not too small so there is nothing to choke on and the numbers, and letters are printed on the surface of the plastic.
The cups not only stack on top of each other but they nestle inside each other perfectly for easy storage. This also helps the child to learn to count backwards as well! Another really fun feature is the bottom of the cups. When placed with the opening side down for stacking the top of each cup has small bumps according to the number listed on the cup! This gives the child a physical way to feel what that amount of items feel like.
One thing I love about the stacking cups is the adorable bear head that tops all the other cups. This brings a fantastic touch of whimsy perfect for this toy! This bear head though lends itself to one tiny flaw with the toys. When turned upside-down the bear head fits snugly into the number two cup. And I mean VERY snugly. This can cause the bear head to get stuck but with a little work it can be pulled back out. This may make for a few unhappy babies but it isn't a deal breaker.
All in all, though when shipped the box was a little worse for wear, I love everything about the toy as did the kids who got their hands on it immediately when it arrived! Would definitely recommend to someone looking for a traditional toy with a little bit of a twist. You can find this toy from LUCLUCon Amazon here!
