OT Approved Toy | Pop-Up Toy

A pop up toy is a classic baby toy that is a favorite of therapists. It's even in Natalie's PT toolbox! As an OT, I like this simple toy because it works on fine motor skills, as well as cause and effect. Babies like pushing the animals down and then as they get older, they develop the skills to manipulate the buttons and knobs. It can also be a motivating toy for encouraging kids to crawl, cruise, or walk!
Best for ages: 6 months - 2 years

Skills addressed: 

  • fine motor
  • cause and effect
  • animal identification


Where to buy:

This is one of those toys that you can find fairly easily at yard sales and second hand stores, but if you don't have time to hunt for one you can always order it from Amazon.
