Basic Bathtub Ball Track Set
This Bathtub Ball Water Track Set has six pieces that easily attach to the tile of the bathroom with suction cups and can be rearranged into many different configurations. Children learn simple physics of moving water as they position and angle pieces for optimum effect. When tracks and paddle wheel are in place, the fun begins!
The ball quickly zips down the tracks, gives the paddle wheel a spin, and finally flops into the bathtub. For extra fun, use the ladle to pour water into the track and watch it run the same route as the ball! For tall toddlers who stand in a non-slip bath, two track sets make so much fun your children may beg to stay in the bathtub.
Contains three tracks, a paddle wheel, a ladle, and a ball. Physical properties of water, spatial reasoning, simple Newtonian laws, and creative design of tracks that work are the developmental value that makes this an Early Childhood STEM toy.
SIZE: 8.1" x 10.3" x 5"
Water is tactile. Young children learn best by touching and playing with toys and materials. With a toy like this basic bathtub ball track set, a child can investigate the properties of water with no preconceived knowledge.
Young children are naturally drawn to water because of its appealing physical properties and a child’s innate curiosity about cause and effect, warm and cool, floating and sinking. Water play is an early science lesson disguised as play and fun.
Children continue to increase their vocabulary with your support. They can’t use words until they understand the meaning. It's not necessary to restrict language to simple words. In fact, you can support language learning by using terms like pour, trickle, float, stream, and flow.
Placing and moving the pieces on suction cups supports and understanding of simple physics for optimum speed and play. These are all forms of sensory play which help develop fine motor skills in preparation for hand and finger control needed for writing.
