Until Baby Bear began playing with blocks, I didn't realize just how much hand-eye coordination goes into making two blocks fit together. This toy was actually a little frustrating to Baby Bear for a little while because he wanted to make the blocks to go together, but this skill didn't come naturally. It took a lot of practice and a little help, but eventually he got it. The tip that helped our Baby Bear the most was telling him to pat down a block after he put it on top of another one so they would stay together. The first time this worked gave him such a sense of accomplishment!
