    This cuddly plush pelican has an empty belly . . . and a big appetite for fun! Young children can open the pelican's big bill (which squeaks when squeezed!) to drop four mini plush animals into his open mouth. Then the crinkly shrimp, squeaking octopus, and rattling fish and crab drop right into the bird's big belly! A peek-in, reach-in window on the pelican's front lets kids spot them easily and pull them out to try it all again. The repetitive activity is great for babies and toddlers working on motor skills and other early developmental skills. And thanks to an incredible array of fun-to-explore features--from chubby, squeak-able cheeks to crinkly wings to floppy, rattling feet--it never gets old!

    Melissa & Doug K's Kids toys nurture early childhood development in three key skill areas: physical, cognitive, and social. With interactive designs and multisensory features, K's Kids promotes constructive play and effortless learning, keeping interest high and new skills flourishing throughout the baby and toddler years!

    Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:

    • 9 MONTHS AND UP: Show the child how to place a piece in the pelican's mouth. Then point to the animal in the pelican's body and help the child retrieve it.
    • Hand the child a piece to touch and hold. Encourage the child to shake, squeeze, and pass the object from hand to hand to hear its sound.
    • Encourage the child to hold one of the pelican's wings in each hand, lifting and lowering the wings as they crinkle.
    • 12 MONTHS AND UP: Ask the child to place the sea creatures in the pelican's mouth and gather them from its belly.
    • Place the four sea creatures in a row and count them. Count them again as they are placed in the pelican's mouth, and as they are retrieved from the belly again.
    • Help the child learn the names of the four small sea creatures by saying each name aloud as you lift and point to the animal.
    • 18 MONTHS AND UP: Ask the child to place the sea creatures in the pelican's mouth and tilt the pelican to dump them out again.
    • Help the child identify the different colors on the pelican. Say a color name aloud and ask the child to point to that color on the pelican's body. Ask the child to find the color on the sea creatures, too.
    • Help the child identify the different parts of the pelican's body, such as eyes, cheeks, and feet, and encourage the child to point to the same parts on his or her own body.
