Little Tikes Activity Garden, sometimes also described as Little Tikes Discover Sounds Activity Garden, is a great toy which will allow your infants to discover sound activities. It is suitable for children of the ages 6 months to 3 years. Like most of the Little Tikes Toys it grows with your toddlers. Therefore the Activity Garden can be easily transformed (without any tools) from a play center to an open-playspace, two-sided play center which accommodates and engages your child to learning. The closed play configuration will allow babys to play safely inside of the center, but also to exit the center through the arches. Babys like the stimulating colors, shapes, and textures which they will find on every surface around them. The open Activity Garden setup allows older children to access both sides of the play-center and discover every single feature of the play gym.
