SURPRISE INSIDE ELEPHANT
Publisher/Manufacturer: International Playthings Inc.
Child psychologists talk a lot about object permanence, the awareness that objects -- and important people -- exist in babies' minds even when out of sight. One great way to reinforce the concept is with this toy: The Surprise Inside Elephant, a velour pachyderm that holds soft, squeaky surprises for little discoverers. Babies can find a ball, mouse, baby elephant or bag of grinning peanuts in the elephant's body and 'hide' them in the outside pockets. With its own easy-carry handle, this colorful elephant promises hours of portable, quiet, imaginative play, perfect for families on the go at holiday time.
