(Ad-gifted) We received this stacker and rocker toy in exchange for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Little Dottie is now 18 months old and very interested in everything around her. As she is the second child, there are always lots of L’s old toys hanging around which she loves to pick up and look at. However, I do feel a little mum guilt as we rarely buy her toys of her own.
When Hello Baby Direct got in touch with us asking if we would like to review something off their online baby store website, I thought it would be a good idea to choose a toy for Little Dottie. One of her own that wasn’t a hand me down and one that would help her with developing her motor skills.
There is so much to choose from over on their website with many different brands. We are loving wooden toys at the moment so I went for this Elk and Fox Looping Stacker and Rocker. The brand that made this wooden stacker toy is a French brand called Janod. They specialise in the creation of traditional toys and games from wood and cardboard.
The Janod Zigolos Elk and Fox Looping Stacker and Rocker toy is 4 fun activities in 1 smartly designed wooden toy! Stack and build a 5in. fox and elk with wooden shapes felt ears and tail and spring necks. Move wooden beads through an 11in. tall metal maze. The all-wooden base rocks back and forth as weight is added or taken from either side and contains 4 wood marbles and a bell to add some lively sounds.

- Stack and build a fox and an elk
- Move beads through the maze while trying to keep everything balanced

What we thought
First thoughts were of the good quality and feel to the wood and paint used on the wooden stacker toy. It’s sturdy and will take a lot of toddler bashing! I like the addition of the material felt parts to the elk and fox. It’s fantastic for sensory touch.
It’s not an overall large toy, but with there being 4 games in the one unit it will keep little ones busy and interested. Moving the beads through the metal maze is great for fine-tuning those motor skills and hand-eye coordination. The stacking of the elk and fox is fun. All kids love stacking toys!
The balancing part of the toy is perfect for teaching little ones about balancing and movement. Overall the Elk And Fox Looping Stacker and Rocker Toy is a lovely toy that will supply lots of fun while learning and amusement for all.
