A real balancing act! Use the slightest touch. Give it a good swipe. Or, roll it across the floor. No matter what your child does, the cheerful monkey balances on top! Silly sounds and whimsical music help capture and hold attention. This activity can be used to encourage gross motor skill practice as children creep, crawl or walk to retrieve the ball for further play. Visual tracking skills are also promoted as children use their eyes to follow the ball's movement as it tips, wobbles or rolls! Hint: Place the ball in a box top to keep it within reach for children who are not yet moving about.
Founded in 1930, it was hardly the best time to launch a new business as the shadows of the Depression still loomed over American business. Still, Herman Fisher, Irving Price and Helen Schelle combined their diverse manufacturing and retailing experience to create a toy company and confidently brought 16 wooden toys to the International Toy Fair in New York City. The whimsical nature and magical surprises of those first Fisher-Price toys quickly caught on and became the hallmarks of Fisher-Price ever since. Fisher-Price supports today's families with young children through its breadth of products that includes GeoTrax, Imaginext, Little People, Laugh and Learn, Thomas & Friends, Elmo, Dora the Explorer, Go Diego Go, Sesame Street, Smart Cycle, Ni Hao Kai-Lan, Toy Story and other learning toys and pretend play items.
