The musical sensory station can be used as a tray toy, or remove the toy from the base for floor play. Suction the tray toy to a smooth surface for frustration free play! Press the button on the base to activate music; encourage baby to reach, tug, & bat at the spinning ball & beads - a developmentally appropriate skill baby can do. The spinning center ball is transparent with colorful beads inside that make a gentle rattle sound with spun. Musical tunes can also be activated when the center ball is spun & batted at. The outer ring has squishy textured beads that baby can move freely around the ring.
