Product Information

Looping beads up, down and all around never gets olds. (Admit it, you want to play too.) The quality craftsmanship, like the smooth-sanded pieces and brightly colored shapes, will stand up to endless zigzagging around the wire pathways. Plus, this classic toy helps build early shape, color and size recognition while developing hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.

 
Why You’ll Love It: You can stick it on the highchair or plop it on the play table super strong suction cups hold the maze base safely in place.
 
Age: 1 year and up
 
Features
  • Base suction cups
  • Maze beads of multiple shapes and colors

    Comments about First Bead Maze:

    My daughter is 15 months and immediately loved this toy. My only complaint is that the suction cups hardly stick to anything. She has trouble with the beads on the red wire, so I think it's just something she needs to learn, but she can wander around her playroom and sit down anywhere to play with this. Great item at a great price.

      This thing keeps my 6 month old entertained for an eternity -- which at this point is about 5 minutes. He loves it, and I'm sure will continue to love it.

      Comments about First Bead Maze:

      The paint chipped off of the beads as soon as I brought it home. I still use it but I don't let my son put his mouth on it! That has to be dangerous. I will probably throw it away soon.

      Comments about First Bead Maze:

      My son fell in love with this toy from the very beginning, and I was really excited about it. Until I noticed that it doesn't stick to anything, at all. The suction cups are worthless. I was hoping to use it on my 6 month old son's high chair tray table, but it just doesn't sustain the vacuum. I tried moistening it, pushing it, squeezing it. Totally frustrated. But, I'm giving it 3 stars, since the toy itself is really great, my son just adores it. I just hold onto it, with both hands.

          This bead maze is the perfect size for my 17 month old. It's easy to store and the suction cups stick to his high chair and the table very well. Once he's done with his meal we let him play a little as we finish our meal!

              My 9 month old LOVES this! I put it in front of her while I prepare all of her meals and she is completely absorbed by pushing the beads around, back and forth, up and over..., with her little fingers.

              The only downside is that we have to keep pushing it down to keep it sticking to the wooden table. It sticks well to plastic items. Otherwise, down it goes.....
              Love this!
