Developmental Benefits

  • Sensory
  • Listening & Communication

Your toddler uses his senses to learn about his world. His perception causes a motor response, which leads to higher levels of thinking. This game will enhance your child's two most important senses—hearing and sight.


  • Wind-up or turn on a musical toy and hide it somewhere in the playroom.
  • Have your toddler come into the room and try to find the toy, just by listening.
  • When your toddler finds the toy, praise him, have him step out of the room, then hide the toy again.


  • Musical wind-up toy or a battery-operated cassette player
  • Playroom


Don't hide the toy too well—your toddler should be able to find it relatively easily, and without having to climb on or overturn things.
