Melissa & Doug Rainbow Caterpillar Gear Toy:

Delight the imagination with the Melissa & Doug Rainbow Caterpillar Gear Toy! Turn the gears slowly and watch each interlocking segment move the next, or see how fast your child can make the caterpillar “crawl” on the wooden base. This rainbow-coloured gear toy is hands-on fun at any speed! With their bulky, notched shape, the colourful gears are easy for children to fit onto the colour-coordinated pegs . . . then rotate, remove and rearrange again and again. Toddlers will be fascinated by the colours and movement of this charming toy. Which one is your favourite colour? How fast can you make the cogs spin around?

Melissa & Doug aim to create toys and games that inspire imaginative and open-ended play. Designed to encourage curiosity and creativity, to develop problem solving skills and determination, and to build social and cognitive skills.
