This musical, award-winning, 2-in-1 snail will roll along and get baby excited to crawl after it. Plus that colorful shell on its back doubles as a 7-piece ring stacker. The most adorable snail in town may end up being your baby’s best crawling buddy, too.
Encourage crawling with this battery-operated snail that rolls, makes music, and spins its shell as it goes, turning its head from side to side, exciting your child to scramble along after it.
Let your baby operate the baby-friendly tail button. Every time it’s activated, the snail rolls approximately 6 feet (1.8 meters) and then comes to a stop – which both rewards and motivates your child to catch it and reactivate, prompting greater exploration of the space.
Have your child discover the surprise of this 2-in-1 toy. When baby and snail take a break from crawling, unscrew the light blue top ring of the spinning shell and it becomes a 7-piece ring stacker toy with a push-squeaker face and a rattle ring. The same-sized rings can be stacked easily and in any order. Screw the light blue ring back on before placing it on the snail’s back.
Show your child how to place and remove the stacker on the snail’s back, how to add its rings, and roll the stacker around. When your child attempts these actions, gross and fine motor skills are developed and problem-solving abilities are promoted.
Use the on/off button at the front of the snail in order to turn it off and play with it in quiet mode, moving it independently.
Inside the Box:
1 x battery-operated musical crawl-along snail
1 x 7-piece stacking shell unit with rattle, beads, and squeaker
Show your child how to stack the rings, take them off, and put them back together again, helping your child to understand that objects can be taken apart and then reconfigured. Narrate the problem-solving you are doing, or count the rings as you stack.
As your child presses the button and activates the adorable snail, they begin to understand the nature of near and far distance, as well as fast and slow movement. They begin to understand the cause and effect relationship, and are encouraged to explore their surroundings.
Imagination & Creativity
While moving, the snail plays charming music and the unique, colorful toy on its back spins – all of which make the snail a joy to befriend. Sing to it and engage with it, developing your child’s imagination.
Fine Motor Skills
As your child pushes the start button and squeaker, or picks up the rings and stacks or unstacks them, they develop their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Encourage them by expressing enthusiasm at their accomplishments.
Gross Motor Skills
As your child pursues the snail, it crawls and stops, and seems to beckon them to come catch up. This action develops their crawling skills. Additionally, when your child plays with the stacking toy rings, they are also developing the muscles to be properly seated and hold themselves in position.
This enchanting snail ignites the senses through the sound of squeaks, rattling, and music. The visual stimulation of the colorful rings and spinning wheels encourage your child to linger while playing. And the various textures and rings engage touching and teething.
Social & Emotional Development:
Cooperation & Sharing
Sharing the snail, rolling it back and forth between you and your child, or taking turns putting a ring on the stacker, allows your child to practice cooperation. Encourage this by saying, “Now it’s Baby’s turn. Now it’s Mommy’s turn.”
Children naturally seek out faces, so the big eyes of the snail will nurture this instinct for communication and engagement. Model talking to it and hugging it, and soon your baby will also feel like it’s their buddy and communicate with it, too.
The stacking toy’s rings are same-size and they can be stacked in any order, so it is easy for your child to feel a sense of accomplishment even as they are still learning how to stack. The snail itself can also be easily brought to life with a push, further inspiring their confidence.
