PlanToys designers have created an innovative sorting and stacking toy with the Wooden Lacing Sheep. The head of the sheep has a spine of 5 multi - colored "vertebrae." The toy also contains 5 different "wooly" disks with a colored center which corresponds to the colored vertebrae on the sheep's spine. Children match the colored centers to the colored vertebrae to create a beautiful sheep. Two of the pieces contain legs and one contains the tail. Children can thread the pieces pieces on to the spine to create their own unique sheep too and get a giggle. The toy helps children learn colors, sequencing and sorting, fine motor skills, and create their own unique animals.
