Product Review: Tall Stacker™ Pegs & Pegboard Set (Age 2+)
We are Serious about Fun
If you are looking for a great Montessori activity for the toddler + crowd a pegboard set is a great way to help your little one develop their fine motor skills and coordination with an introduction to sorting and patterning skills. This is a versatile teaching toy with multi-colored pegs for counting, adding, subtracting and the fun of building. Brooke loves her peg set and it was fun to see her not-so successful attempts at stacking pegs long ago to her quite proficient stacking techniques now. It is still one of her favorite toys (along with her wooden box stacker) and she is now starting to understand the different colors for potential grouping and later down the line she will be able to enjoy learning about patterns. I decided to check out the Tall Stacker Pegs & Pegboard Set by Lauri because I thought it look like a great chunky peg set for the youngest of stackers and also liked the price.
The Tall Stacker Pegs & Pegboard Set by Lauri is a great design. The pegboard is an 8″ square of crepe rubber with 25 holes for pegs. The pegs are thick and come in 5 different colors of red, orange, blue, yellow and green. Kids can stack pegs are high as they can, make pattern designs and do color sorting. It is the perfect tool for developing fine motor skills and has given my daughter a longer attention span when playing and that is priceless. You can buy additional Tall Stacker Pegs or a larger PegBoard with 100 holes through the Patch Product website for more stacking fun. I think this set is a fantastic deal and has given us many hours of play in our house.
About Lauri and Patch Products: Esther Filbulkin, a retired MA schoolteacher, created her first Lauri product in 1961 with the help of her husband’s shoe store slipper soles! Esther thought that the crepe rubber used for the soles of slippers could be die-cut to make small puzzle pieces and a toy company was born. Lauri brands became part of Patch Products family, headquartered in Beloit, WI, in 2008. Patch Products has a rich history in children’s games and Lauri has proved to be an excellent addition for Patch.
Check it out! Lauri also offers some additional fantastic Montessori activities such as lacing games at a great price.
