Loads of different activities can be explored and shared by kids of all ages with this taggie-adorned ball. Super soft and cuddly, it makes a fun sound too.

This Taggies is brought to you by Mary Meyer Toys. Mary Meyer has been making toys that are safe and fun for more than 75 years. In 1933, 29 year old Mary and her husband, Hans Meyer, put their talents together to design, manufacture, and sell animal pin cushions and with dolls. After several years they added stuffed toys. In the early 1940's, they moved the company to the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont. In the mid 1950's Mary's son Walter joined the company.
