Start learning at a young age and teach your child about popular landmarks in their own state. Use this travel sensory toy as a way to engage with your little one discussing recognizable buildings, monuments and staples as they explore. Share facts about the state that they live in: state bird, animal, tree and look and find the state flag, flower and motto. The State Square is accented with coordinating ribbons that are sewn shut, so little fingers do not get intertwined in the ribbon loops. The variety of textured ribbons and fabrics encourage tactile play and help children develop cognitively, socially and emotionally through sensory interaction.
