Stacrobats are a Great Gifting Idea for Your Little Ones (Giveaway)

by Guest Contributor

 

Trying to find toys that my one year old likes to play with can be difficult. All the normal toys that my other two liked as babies he just isn’t into. So when Kushies was looking for moms to try out their Stacrobats, I was in!

When it arrived I gathered all 3 kids, ages six, four, and 1 year old in the living room and opened the box. The older two pounced on it! I fought them back and told them that this was a gift for the baby not for them. After about a minute in a half of putting 3 or 4 pieces in his mouth he crawled away. I felt a bit let down, but let the other two check it out.

The next thing I know the older two are having a great time playing with the Stacrobats! They must have played un-interrupted for about an hour (trust me that is a record in my house).

My 6 year old is on the Autism Spectrum and it can be very difficult to find things for him to play with that can help him with imaginative play, but don’t have lights, noises or screens. Not only does he like playing with the Stacrobats, but it has also given him hours of fun imaginative play. He and my 4 year old daughter pretend they are watching a circus together, then they arrange the people into different positions and try to knock them over with the ball. The have even tried to see just how high they can stack them.

The only downside I could find was that my one year old had no real interest outside using it as a chew toy. Having said that, when he does grab one of the pieces, I know it is safe for him to chew on. I have a feeling that in a few months he will be playing along with them!

What Kushies say about the Stacrobats:

The magnetic figures, balls, and base are easy to attach. Connect them in zillions of ways! Begin with simple magnetic discovery and grow to learn stacking and balance. The many ways to play and succeed encourages self-expression and builds self confidence. Encourages– Explorative play, flexible thinking, dexterity, self-expression, self-confidence, and Independent play.

From a practical standpoint; I like how well made the pieces are, and that there is a zipper pack that keeps all the pieces together. It is certainly one of those toys I will be keeping for a long time.

The best things about Stacrobats is watching my children play together with a toy that doesn’t include batteries, something not often seen in my house!
