Press 'n Go Inchworm by International Playthings
This is a simple cause-effect toy that has been highly popular with children from a wide range of age groups and ability levels that I have worked with. The concept of the toy is a very simple one - you push down on the worm's back and it races forward across the floor. Strengths: A basic cause-effect toy that doesn't require batteries or make any noise or sounds when activated (other than the tiny beads that roll around in the wheels). Weaknesses: The first one I had was broken when a child tried to force the toy to go in reverse (pushed down the back and then pushed the toy backwards instead of letting it roll foward freely). Where to Buy: This toy is currently available through Discovery Toys (http://www.discoverytoys.com/).
