Colorful Clown Stacker
Time to Clown Around with this ring stacker. From about a year old, children will spend plenty of time with this self-correcting ring stacker. First children learn to take rings off the spindle. Then, simply getting a ring on the spindle is an achievement. Children will be near two years before the order of rings becomes an objective. Sorting, sequencing and spindle threading are all critical thinking skills necessary for more advanced learning.
This stacker is a best-selling stacking toy. The rings, hat, and smiling face are all a perfect clutching size for little hands. They are beautifully sanded and prepared to slide easily onto the swivel base. This toy encourages coordination, color and size recognition as well as motor skill development.
Sturdy wood craftsmanship sourced from sustainably managed forests. The Clown Ring Stacker is a proud recipient of the 2009 Creative Child Seal of Excellence Award.

Clown stacking toys have been around for more than 60 years. This little clown is Hape's best selling stacking toy, recognized for its fundamental learning value. The Clown Stacker helps the developing mind discriminate, order and sequence. These are underlying skills for math, science, reading, writing, problem-solving and more.
When a child is a year old, they will handle and clutch the pieces practicing motor skills. Eventually, they will learn to thread a piece on the spindle which requires eye-hand coordination. Next, children will more easily discriminate between color, size, and shape. Eventually, sequencing the pieces in order will occur. All of this supports the brain's development of problem-solving ability.
This toy is self-correcting. Parents simply need to model the action.
