Baby game : up, up, up and dowwwwwwn

Ziggy and I explored a new set of blocks I bought for the preschool. It turns out that these light weight musical rainbow blocks were very interesting to my little 9 month old grandson and perfect for playing the baby game:  “Up, up, up!” and “Dowwwwwwwwwwwwwwn!” over and over and over again…

My job was to stack the blocks up (with one hand and try to take photos with the other)….

And Ziggy’s job was to reach out and knock the blocks down….

My job was to say, “Up, up, up!” as I stacked the blocks on top of each other…

And to say “Dowwwwwwwn” when Ziggy knocked them all down…

Ziggy loved our game and for as long as he stayed interested, we continued to play…

Ziggy concentrated on the blocks all throughout our game. Well except for a moment here and there…

After a little while, we changed the game to “In and Out”…

      Hi Miriam,
      I ordered the block from Amazon. They weren’t too terribly expensive but they weren’t the cheapest set either:)

    Sometimes the things that sound so easy can be the most fun! I am very interested in the musical rainbow blocks, too.
