How to Use
During the early stages of your baby’s development, you can sit her by the wall (inside or out) with the rain beads disk and 2 propellers. Demonstrate the activity and watch how quickly your baby will master these skills. Try sitting your baby by the balls roller-coaster. You can roll the balls down the ramps and ask your baby to retrieve them at the trap door at the base of the coaster. This will encourage the development of motor skills & object permanence, the understanding that objects exist even when they cannot be seen. As your child begins to stand he will master this task independently. You can teach concepts of color by asking your child to match the colored ball to the matching color chute. Count along with your baby while you stack balls in the numbered chutes. At the age of 1.5-2 years, ask your toddler to use the colored shaped sorter keys to retrieve the balls from inside the tent. Develop confidence through games like “Now you see me, now you don’t!” Sit your baby inside the playhouse and call his name. He can pop his head out the front opening or peek at you through the holes on each side. This will develop his sense of object permanence. The Discovery Playhouse is also great for cooperative play allowing your little one to practice and develop social skills and imagination.

Special Instructions for Storage and Handling
Each wall panel has a sleeve in the bottom into which the tubes must be inserted. The insertion of the tube is not from the side of the sleeve but from a hole, located a few inches to the left side of each panel. The hole is created from the sewing of the sleeve and from that hole the tubes are inserted. Part H is both. When playhouse is in an open position, the part is clip-connected to the blue tube creating a roller coaster. When playhouse is folded for storage, part H connects above to hold all 4 wall panels together.
