Let your little ones soak up some quality time in the bath with our Waterworks - Pipeline. Pour water through the top of the head of this multi-layered toy for an early childhood lesson in water exploration. Watch as the water ﬂows through the pipes, turn the valves on and off to stop and start the ﬂow, swap the eleven key pieces around and change their direction. Where will the water ﬂow next? Watch the ball rise and fall with the changing water levels. Who knew cause and effect could be so much fun? Ideal for developing problem solving skills, creative thinking, critical analysis, independent thinking, as well as testing and exploring.

It can also double as a fun pool toy or cool hanging decor item for kids’ bedrooms.
Each set includes everything you need to make your own fabulous shrink-art jewellery.
