And On That Farm There Was A Peg, E-I-E-I-O!

I remember having stacking pegs when I was little, but these toys from ALEX are SO much cuter! The ALEX Peg Farm pegs have adorable little animal faces on them and a sturdy farmyard base to build on.

Lori started putting the pegs in the holes and making sure they were all facing the right way. This kept her busy for a while. Then I showed her that they could be stacked one on top of another. She loved sorting them by animal and then making patterns by color. She was so proud to show me all the different combinations she designed. I love when a toy encourages my child to feel proud of herself!

I also like that, as is with all ALEX Little Hands products, none of the pieces in this kit are small parts. So just in case Lori forgets to put them away before Julie wakes up from her nap, I don’t have to worry about my 18 month old putting them in her mouth. It is really nice to not have to stress about these things!

I know this one was fun for her to play with, but I can’t wait to give her the Peg and Layer Jungle next! It adds a new element to the pegs and I know she will love building with it. Stay tuned!

Why I love this product:

  • Independent play
  • Encourages self-esteem
  • Different levels of play – sort, stack, count, and create!
  • No little pieces to worry about
