I couldn’t leave out the most popular of pop up toys around. The infamous Jack in the box pop up toy. Watch your child’s eyes light up as he gets surprised by the Jack popping out of the box when you turn the handle and the song pop goes the weasel plays. Suddenly out pops the jester Jack and baby will squeal in delight for sure.
This toy comes in a brightly colored tin box with the jester made of soft material. The only issue with this toy is that it does take a bit of time before learning how to get Jack back into the box!
