Blocks (of any kind)
Blocks not only work to develop gross and fine motor skills, but also provide the opportunity to hone children's problem-solving and creativity skills.
Squigz offer a fun sensory attribute (big pop! sound when it disconnects) and versatility in how a child can play with them: they can connect to a variety smooth surfaces (bath tub, table, wall, each other, etc), they allow for imaginative play, problem-solving and help develop hand strength (pushing together/pulling apart) and visual perceptual/spatial skills.
These blocks come in two sizes, toddler blocks which are smaller and kid blocks which are bigger. They are great to foster gross motor, visual motor, and visual perceptual skills. There are endless ways to use these blocks and can play with them for many years.
