Surprise Inside Elephant by The Early Years
This soft velour elephant is a great "first" hide-inside box for most infants and toddlers. With four soft toys that you can either tuck inside pockets on the outside of the elephant or place inside the opening on the top of the elephant's back, this toy offers lots of fun and creative play opportunities for young children. Strengths: Children enjoy being able to manipulate the small hide-inside toys that are just the right size for little hands. The toys squeak and crinkle, so there are many different sensory activities baby can enjoy with this toy. Weaknesses: Because of the material the toy is made out of, washing can be a bit tricky. Spot cleaning is the best, but you can try washing on a gentle cycle inside of a pillowcase. I've had one make it through the wash cycle and one fall apart on me - so I guess it's just the luck of the draw.
