I've had this toy since I was a mere six months old. It was a great yard sale find, and I loved pushing the animals back down after a grownup popped them up for me. That's how I played with this for months and months. It was sort of like peekaboo, and I loved seeing the animals pop up! Mommy and Daddy always then talked to me about the animals, where they live, and sounds they make.
Fast-forward several months to my first birthday... Now that I'm a big one year old, I can make the animals pop up on their own! This toy had been put away for awhile, and then my mommy decided to bring it back out to see what I could do with it. You should have seen her surprised expression when I went down the line opening every single animal's secret compartment!
Mommy and Daddy love this toy because it is great for developing my fine motor skills. All five functions require me to do something different, from sliding a switch to pushing a button and even turning a crank! I love it because I'm able to sit and play with this toy all by myself now!
