Great for your child's development:
Children learn best through hands-on play: maneuvering the key into the lock, discovering the right way to turn it, opening and closing each door, and imagining stories to accompany each doll. Doorbell House offers all of this in a durable, portable toy, so kids can take it along anywhere as they build counting skills, memory, fine motor skills, and hand-eye coordination. The four unique doorbell sounds strengthen auditory skills, too!
"A great idea—basically a little street rolled up into one little box! . . . The feature that really sets this aside is that each little door has its own dainty lock and key. . . . It is fantastic for [my three-year-old's] coordination, and although she wanted me to do the locks at first she is now learning that with a bit of patience she can do it herself. It is really good for her!"
What you need to know:
This sturdy play set consists of a compact wooden house with a metal handle on its roof. Each of the four faces features a unique doorbell and a numbered door that opens with a small metal key, revealing a triangular compartment within. The four keys are attached to the top handle by a sturdy strap so they can't get lost, and each one is stamped with a number to match the correct door. The keys also feature shaped tips for visual matching to the locks they fit. Four wooden play people come with the set, and store easily inside the compartments.
