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


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.
