Many homes have one of these stacking rings.Tristan likes to call it a “Piston Cup” as it’s the same shape as the trophy in the Cars movies. We had a Fisher Price one as children. Our children have a store-brand one, but it works just as well; the only thing missing from it is the ball that fit onto the top to hold the rings in place. But as times have changed, perhaps this extra ball was not fit for health and safety purposes? Regardless, this is still a classic toy with lots of fun learning potential!
The rings can be used to practice learning primary colours.
Size differentiation can be learned while stacking the rings onto the post while also working on hand-eye coordination at the same time.
This set of rings also has different raised shapes on some of them which adds some tactile exploration as well.
It takes a lot of concentration to hold them like this
I have one for each hand. Hmm, they feel different, do they taste different?
As the children grow a little, they are still using these stacking rings, but in new ways.
The rings have become fashion accessories when they are used as bracelets.
The rings can be used as a ring toss instead of just calm stacking.
Children can have a competition to see who can roll a ring the furthest.
