Button Bot

Button Bot

Spring 2012 Toys
Ages: 2 - 5 yrs.
Manufacturer: ALEX
Price: $27.95

If you are specifically looking for a toy that helps teach fine motor skills, then the Button Bot is a lot of fun. Colorful, creative, robot parts fit together by the use of big, easy to grip buttons that even small hands can manage. Kids who are engaged with the toy will find an endless number of ways to put them together. Each of the twenty-five pieces included is two-sided and able to fit over any of the buttons. And unlike many of the "learn-to-dress" dolls on the market now, the Button Bot is truly gender neutral, making it a great option for parents looking for a toy for siblings to share.
