How Many Fisher-Price Learning Toys Can One Family Own?

Updated on February 21, 2017

I love toys and prior to retirement my husband and I owned a small private school which serviced 75 children. During our years of teaching the Fisher-Price Rock and Stack Toy was a favorite of our own kids, our students and our teachers. This is usually a toy a child has during the early years of development. However, in our school we not only used it in traditional ways, we also found it useful for teaching many concept during later childhood.

It you ever owned this toy you may have seen the way children play with it. Although it seems to be designed for babies, we used it to trace circles for art projects, reinforce the learning of colors, size relationships, and so many other learning activities. In our school we always had 4 or 5 of them available to our teachers who were experts at finding new uses for them.

Over the years I have seen this toy redesigned for safety. It used to have a pointy stacking post which was later changed to the design you see here. The rings have also gone through changes from hard plastic to soft, the colors have changed, and some even have moving parts inside a clear topped ring. Fisher-Price has a way with improving the quality and safety factor of their toys. As an educator for over 3 decades I have always loved their innovative designs and how a child can grow with a toys and find new uses for them as they age. This is a must have toy for all kids. I know that it is made to last and is one that is often handed down to the next generation of children.

Playtime at it's Best

More Multi-use Toys.

This toy keeps kids busy while they are learning. Small hands can move and manipulate the active toys for hours on end. Kids never seem to tire from this toy. Of course, the eye-hand coordination improves with every action. Small motor skills are an important part of development for children. These are the skills needed to learn writing and reading as the child develops.

I especially like this toy for my students in preschool. The development that takes place while playing is incredible. If you want your kids to experience single time game, this is the perfect choice for them. Not only does it develop eye-hand coordination, but it also teaches him to play independently. This game creates opportunities to develop the skills needed for future learning.

You too will enjoy watching your children with this toy. You will most likely be amazed at the time they will spend imitating things they have seen in real life.

My children and their children alike have had fun while learning with this toy. If your child has the opportunity to have a playmate, this toy also teaching sharing. This is a great way to develop those skills needed to be successful in school and in life.

Children will learn to work out social skill with this toy. You will hear them talking and pretending to interact while finding solutions to their problems. You may even hear them imitating you while they play.
