Hape Sunny Valley Adventure Dome
This self-contained brightly colored activity maze center offers plenty to think about and do! In order to get the balls up the side of the dome and into one of the mazes, little hands must maneuver Lily the Bird’s magnetic beak to pick up one of the many beads and drop it in place to ring a bell, roll through Tito the Turtle’s shell to turn a gear, make a windmill spin, or swirl through a spiral pond.
Sunny Valley Adventure Dome scored high in the cognitive domain on Parents’ Choice Foundation’s PlayAbility Scale™ for problem solving, sustained attention and persistence. Additional high scoring skill sets were fine motor skills and hand eye coordination.
Well made, appealing, affordable, engaging, and educational, this is a must have for toddlers.
