This multi-tasking snail carries along a shell full of colorful wooden blocks as he follows behind! Lighten the load by removing the colorful shape sorter, and it’s ready to roll alone with a hilarious wiggle of the tail. Hape's Walk-A-Long Snail is the perfect companion for little ones just beginning to learn about sorting shapes and colors. Encourages children to develop fine motor skills as well as active play as they take their new snail friend on adventures around the house. Shapes include three differently shaped holes (triangle, circle, and square) with the opposite side feature an elastic-banded opening for easy yet secure access inside the snail’s shell. Hape toys stimulate children through every stage of development and help nurture and develop their natural abilities. All Hape products sold in North America meet or exceed all applicable safety standards.
