What is it
It’s a deep sea dance party! The Lil Ocean Explorers Stand ‘N Dance Starfish tower encourages Baby to create music and dance along. The light-up keyboard can be played by little hands when sitting, or by little feet when standing and dancing. Baby can use the curvy tower to pull up to standing position, then make the balls spiral out of control down the ball drop to chase. Hours of fun from sitting to standing, to …dancing!
2 Modes of Play
Mode 1: Press or step on the keys to initiate lights and music
Mode 2: Chase the lights around the tower for crawling or walking fun!
Easy grip handle to help child pull to stand and dance

What our experts think
The Stand ‘N Dance Starfish is a fantastic way to get young children up and moving about. They loved standing up and using their feet to press the buttons, which is great for strengthening gross motor skills, balance and coordination. The sounds really grab the child’s attention and introduce them to music.
Children can also learn cause and effect, for example seeing what happens when they press the buttons. Picking up the balls and dropping them down the slide also help children practice fine motor control, strengthening the small muscles in their hands and building hand-eye coordination.
