From his point of view:
I like to throw them, so it helps that they aren't solid pieces (that would hurt Mama). The plastic is good quality that doesn't show teething and wears nicely as a hat as well. The long skinny piece is also fun to use to try and reach things on forbidden counters. The plastic gears fit on my fingers as hats and make colorful pretend cookies (but they don't fit in my Cookie Monster's mouth, which is disappointing).

The plastic cogs are brightly coloured and each interlock so they will move , which ever one that is moved activates the whole line of cogs.
Each cog fits on to an matching peg and so helps to develop matching and order skills. The whole caterpillar promotes a number of developmental activities, suggestions are given on the back of the box. All fixed onto a wooden board the caterpillar makes a bright, stimulating , educational learning toy.
Ca remporte toujours un vrai succès auprès de l'enfant et des parents.
Très ludique et les enfants surprennent souvent les plus grands en assimilant rapidement le principe dès rangements par couleur.
Le jouet est robuste et très joli, le tout pour un petit prix
Nous apprécions beaucoup cette marque de jouet
