16 - 18 Months

Welcome to The Pioneer Play Kit for months 16-18

Pioneers are explorers, innovators, and tinkerers: just like your child. By now, they may be understanding two new words every single day, pointing at everything they want to notice or explore, and are starting to identify body parts. In the next few months they’re entering a brave new world of language growth, gross and fine motor abilities, even the beginnings of artwork—it’s an exciting time for babies and their families.

The Pioneer Play Kit is designed with months 16, 17, and 18 in mind. Your toddler will zoom little wooden cars down the Race & Chase Ramp, delighting as the cars change direction and flip over rapidly on their way down… and shoot out across the floor at the end of their journey. This is an early lesson in the way objects work mechanically, as well as cause-and-effect. Your child will also practice threading, opening and closing lids, responding to two-step directions—and so much more.

For all kinds of ways to play and learn, plus developmental information and tons of new activities, be sure to check out the Play Guide that comes in the kit.
