Peep & Squeak Bunny
This is a soft and gentle introduction to the traditional Jack-in-the Box for older infants and young toddlers. The bunny is spring loaded and when pushed down into the box will pop up when the lid is opened. Another nice feature of the toy is that if the bunny is removed the box itself can be used as a clutch toy for younger infants. Strengths: It's visually appealing to young children and the bunny can be taken out of the box for more independent play. Weaknesses: The bunny sometimes gets "stuck" in the box so the toy looses some of its surprise value. Although children initially like to explore the toy, I have found that their interest is not long lasting.
