Sweet Pea is 32 months old.
From: I can’t remember where I saw these first, but I ordered some from the Oriental Trading Company several months ago.
Observations: I tried to show these to Sweet Pea several months ago, but I couldn’t really get her interested until recently. I think that they must have just required too much manual dexterity for her before, because she has really taken to them now.
She has chosen to work with these several times on her own. She likes to sort the pegs by color, but lately her favorite activity is to try to stack them as high as possible. (The first picture is her excitement over stacking 4 of them all by herself. She was yelling, “I did it! I did it!” Dora the Explorer style.)
Notes from the Trenches: We didn’t have any problems with these, but I do sort of hate that they are yet-another-toy with a bazillion pieces for us to keep track of.
