Some toys are classics for a reason—and the wooden stacker is one of them. They may seem straight-forward, but stackers help baby master fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, pattern and color recognition and concepts like spatial relationships. Now combine those benefits with beautiful craftsmanship, and you have Grimm’s giant Stacking Tower Boat.

WHAT WE LOVE

  • Baby can use the 11 wood pieces to either stack into a sailboat or use as building blocks for open-ended play, giving this toy a long shelf-life
  • The blocks are made from non-toxic, eco-friendly materials and are individually hand-sanded for a safe, smooth finish
  • A stacker this big and beautiful easily doubles as nursery decor, and can be passed down to future littles—which is why this makes a perfect baby shower gift

SUMMARY

A classic, quality stacker that’ll look as good on the shelf as it will in baby’s hands.

Price: $79
