Developmental Benefits

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


Let your toddler have a turn to hide the musical toy for you. Hide two musical toys so your toddler has to distinguish between the sounds.
