Every little one dreams of finding their treasure at the end of a rainbow!
This brightly coloured, natural stackable rainbow is made up of 7 separate pieces and can be used by children of all ages. It can begin as a decoration in a babies nursery to one day be used by a toddler to build bridges, roads or tunnels and finally as a tool for stretching puzzle making skills, logical thinking and developing motor skills. Measures approximately 24.5 cm in length.
This activity is suitable for little ones from 18 months up to 4 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
