Haba Palette of Pegs
Loved by occupational therapists, parents, and children alike, Palette of Pegs will develop and strengthen visual perception skills, eye-hand coordination, and fine motor skills, including the pincer grasp. It‘s such an amazing workout for little hands! With its rainbow of colors, Palette of Pegs is one of the most versatile pegboards for toddlers. Use it to develop color recognition, sorting, and sequencing skills. Match the ring to the peg or go color-crazy. Then try stacking the pegs with the rings — can the stacked rings keep it stable? Heirloom-quality Palette of Pegs‘ brilliant colors come from solvent-free paints, so there is never any worry when toys wander from hand to mouth. Made from natural beech wood.

My 1 year old loves this game, sometimes I separate the colors so he sees just one color, or the next time we use it, I will have him put only the pegs on, etc. Great engaging "toy" that have endless possibilities for learning.
I love the Haba Palette of Pegs. My granddaughters use it while I am working with my daughter on other school work. It's easy enough for them to play with on their own and also great for hand/eye coordination for little fingers. Also great for teaching colors and matching and sorting. Great for little ones but also fun for older ones just to play!
This was my daughters favorite "toy" in her curriculum. She would play with it for hours and continually find new things to do with all the pieces. She learned her colors, including variations in the colors (ex: light blue vs. dark blue), she also got really good with her fine motor skills, and then started building things with the pieces. I can't wait to find out what my second child learns with it!
My kids have all loved this toy. We've even lost a piece and the manufacturer replaced it promptly for a small fee. What I don't love is the color choices - what a perfect opportunity to teach color recognition missed because they chose to have 3 shades of blue and a very yellowy green.
My son does not get the concept yet. Can't wait until he understands to play with it.
