I have 2 (of many) toys and what appears to be colorful little plastic props are actually interactive toys. The Tugboat and Board Book Set is a great option for any child over 6 months. The tugboat doubles as a fun toy and a bath toy with a wide spout for hair washing. Cleaning him is easy as he comes apart to get to the inside areas and is dishwasher safe.

The Cargo Plane is so adorable. The car and plane can be played with separately but as a set, the cargo plane opens up in back to fly your car wherever their little travel minds desire.
