Babies and toddlers can now join the rage for modular car systems! babu Rollers provide three wooden car bases with 6 car tops to mix and match, exercising fine and gross motor skills as well as balance, cause-effect and pretend play. I’ve spent many years as a speech language pathologist, training new parents on how to maximize learning while playing with their child. babu Rollers is a great set for just that. Parents can feed little ones language as they play, following their child’s lead and talking about what they are focusing on. For example. “The orange block is on top of the blue one.” “You made a train.” “That truck is in front of the line.” “You put 1-2 blocks on top of the wheels.” “This one goes next.” The simplicity of this toy encourages a child’s creativity and language development.
