Aitey Wooden Lacing Toy for Toddlers

Aitey Wooden Lacing Toy for Toddlers

Wooden Lacing Toys For Toddlers: The lacing toys for kids playing include 1 apple slice, 1 watermelon slice, and 1 pineapple slice, which is different from other product combinations.

The board game material is lightweight wood and the size is only slightly larger than an adult’s palm, so the kids can carry it around. It’s a great airplane, train, and car activity for toddlers.

So often lacing toys are thin cards that are quickly damaged. These are thick (maybe 3/4 inch), well-painted wood. The lacing strings are well attached to the toy; the lacing aglet is suitable for toddlers with undeveloped fine motor skills. I like that there are three in the set for siblings (no fighting over one). They are about 10″ at their longest dimension. I like the fun fruit theme.
