We all know and love the game Peek-a-boo and many of us will have with fond memories of Mum hiding her face behind her hands, then popping back into view, saying “Peek-a-boo, I can see you!”
It has been a simple game that has lived on for centuries and is believed to improve cognitive development via object permanence which is an important stage of an infant’s progression. This stage usually develops around 8-9 months of age, before this they are too young to understand object permanence.
We have some great toys designed specifically to help with this stage of your child’s development. Our Peep-O Doggie can be pulled right inside his little cup to spring out with a big smiley face and greet your baby.
You’ll be able to have a fun game of peep-o with this soft colourful puppet; move the pole up and down and the cute Doggie appears then disappears again to delight your child. The
puppets also contain a jingle bell and crinkle which is brilliant for exploring touch and sound.
Since the beginning of television, puppets have had a special place on the airwaves… Our top five are:
1. Charlie McCarthy
2. Bert and Ernie
3. Kermit the Frog (and Miss Piggy!)
5. Punch and Judy
Can you name any more?
