HABA_Ophélie and her chicksMama Ophelie is the perfect teacher for kids 6 months and up as she sits down to offer a lesson in describing her fuzzy face, crinkly wings and rattle as she moves. Keep exploring as you pull out the soft shape-sorter ball in her tummy. Reach into one of the ball’s  4 color coded sections, to pull out a baby chick finger puppet of the same color, providing a different sound when squeezed. Kids especially loved the one that went “Cheep, cheep!” Ophelie has room for a mom-sized hand to play puppets with her chicks or pretend as plush friends. So much language learning is available as children stuff the chicks in Ophelie’s pockets, play in their ball or “talk” to each other.
