Musical Jack-in-the Box by Tolo
This brightly coloured little music box is an interesting toy for infants starting at about 9-12 months of age. When you turn the crank on the side of the box, the lid pops open, and a brightly coloured clown pops out. It's a great toy to help your child learn how to anticipate events and actions. Strengths: A brightly coloured toy that encourages social interaction between you and your baby because you need to operate the toy for him or her. Weaknesses: If your child is easily startled, the clown may be a bit frightening when it pops out of the box. Try and look for a toy where the figure pops out a little more gently than does this clown.
