The Walk-A-Long Snail is a googly-eyed snail with a block-holding shell which spins on the snail's back when your little one pulls it along. One side of the shell has three differently-shaped holes (triangular, circular and square) for your youngster to practice shape sorting, while the other side has an elastic-banded opening to allow for easy removal of shape blocks from the snail's shell. The shell is removable, ensuring functional fun while also preventing pinched fingers. For ages twelve months and up. Durable child safe paint finish and solid, wood construction are hallmarks of Hape toys. Hape's 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.
