The Peek n’ Peep Eggs set is a simple educational toy that develops a wide variety of social, cognitive, and developmental skills.

You can use it as a simple matching game; the very young child must match the eyes to the egg shell. As a sorting game, children must sort the egg shapes on the bottom of the eggs to the matching shape inside the carton. Use it to teach colors and shapes as well. (Read More Click Here)
