Bello – Galaxy Stacker
We love wooden toys that are vibrant, colourful and well made. Even better when they come in a theme that Reuben is totally into – space. He loves pointing at stars and the moon, and telling us how dark it is at night, and he has a book about hippos going to the moon. So at Christmas, he was gifted the Bello Galaxy Stacker Rocket from Kidstuff. His imagination took off straight away, it was fun to watch. The lady goes ‘zoom’ and ‘blast off’ and goes to the moon!!
He is developing his own little games with it. The pieces are magnetic as well, so he can mix and match them in different orders, which keeps the enjoyment going, and he can get creative by putting other magnetic items together with the rockets. The Galaxy Stacker is often involved in renditions of ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’, with new versions such as:
Twinkle twinkle little star,
How my rocket goes so far,
Up into the space so high,
watching the moon as it flies by,
Twinkle Twinkle little star,
how my rocket goes so far.
Or it is also used when we are reading ‘Hippo Goes to the Moon’, where the hippo and its friends build a rocket, and then it explodes in space, and then she lands safely back on earth – all possible to re-enact with this great little toy. He especially loves making the Galaxy Stacker explode. In fact, the rocket has proved to be very durable, lasting through many, many, many collisions in space!
Bello is a great range of wooden toys with something to suit every child from young baby through to preschoolers.
