#1 – Bee Hive
Each bee has a bee hive that is color coded so it is easy for your kid to know which bee goes where. Using the forceps to put the bees back in their home is great at developing little hand muscles that will eventually hold a fork or spoon.
#2 – Tricky Fingers
Tricky Fingers is a fun game with 14 pattern boards for a lot of variety. My girls liked playing with it, trying to move the balls to their color coded space on the game board.
#3 – Little Tool Box
The little tool box is so much fun. With wrenches, hammers, a saw and more, there is a lot that can be done with this play set! It is made from rubber wood, and painted with totally non-toxic paints, dyes, and lacquers.
#4 – Wooden Car Carrier Set
My girls love playing with their car carrier set. Just like the big rigs on the road, the truck transports cars from one play place to another. The cars also fit on standard train tracks from other toys for even more possibilities!
#5 – Monster Bowling
Hand stitched little monsters make up the pins for the indoor monster bowling game. They are wacky and colorful, not to mention super fun. The set includes a zippered case for neat storage or easy travel.
#6 – Stacking Train
The stacking train is made of an engine and two cars with 15 stackable wooden blocks. What will your little one transport? They can make many shapes on each car and let their imagination run wild!
#7 – Animal Car and Bead Maze
Your kiddo can pull their little wooden animal and bead maze around the house. Once they are satisfied with a play area there’s a bead maze to entertain and a shape sorter too! He’s TOO cute!
#8 – Musical Tree
Each piece of the musical tree makes its own unique sound. Four different “instruments” allows for the whole family to join in on the fun. When the kids are done playing with it, it can be stored in the shape above so it looks like a tree.
#9 – Pound and Tap Bench
My girls love the pound and tap bench. It has a slide out xylophone to be played on its own. When the xylophone is stored in the bench kids can pound each ball through the holes on the top to roll down the xylophone and make music. It is super fun and very compact!
#10 – Hide and Seek Ball
Easily the cutest toy on this list is the hide and seek ball. These little guys pop in and out as the ball is rolled around or manipulated by hand. They are really cute and the ball is small enough for kids’ hands.
There we have the top 1o toys the promote fine motor skills for 3 year olds. All of these toys are fun and educational, but more importantly, they will teach your little ones how to use their hands and to be more independent. This is only a list of my favorites, did yours make it on the list?
