Sitting in a high chair is much more fun with this fantastic bead maze, featuring brightly-colored, multi-shaped beads that spin and slide along red and yellow wire pathways anchored by a strong suction cup base. This encourages color recognition, hand-eye coordination, and fine motor development through play!

This Melissa & Doug baby toy has been designed to encourage development of multiple critical skills in children 12 months and above. This baby bead maze is made from high-quality materials. The four soft-coated wires twist and turn between two solid wood blocks that display quality craftsmanship for extended safe use.

The First Bead Maze is a delightful and educational gift for kids 12 months up. Add the Melissa & Doug Shape Sorting Cube to round out the hands-on experience and to give kids an engaging option for screen-free play.
