PlanToys Stacking Rocket
Our price: $23.75
By far one of the most attractive stacking toys ever, PlanToys Stacking Rocket is much more than a stacking toy. Each of the four rainbow-colored disks is a double-sided shape puzzle with the smaller pieces inside. Even the cute little astronaut is a shape puzzle. So even before a toddler can figure out how to stack the rings, he will gain experience in solving some simple puzzles. Crafted from recycled preservative-free rubberwood, stained with organic color pigments and water-based natural dyes, Stacking Rocket encourages learning shapes (early math), colors, stacking, and will help develop your little one’s fine motor skills and concentration. The 11-piece Stacking Rocket includes five different shapes plus the rocket base. When your toddler has outgrown the Stacking Rocket, it will make a lovely addition to his bookshelves.

This will grow with your child as there are some hidden puzzle pieces in between the colorful rocket shape.
The hidden, double-sided shape puzzles within the colored rings are fantastic, requiring an additional layer of planning. PlanToy’s safety standards allow me to breathe easy when my little one explores the large rings with his mouth. Excellent toy. The rainbow-ordered rings are a nice touch.
I really love this sturdy toy, and how the levels fit together in a three-dimensional way. It's a vertical puzzle, and it's quite challenging for my one-year-old, but my four-year-old loves it. It's not a super flexible toy in terms of imaginative play, but the puzzle aspect is perfect for developing spatial awareness and fine motor skills.
