Is it a dog, a cat, a pig?

One of our favorite toy companies has come out with a whole new collection of toys designed just for the smallest of hands. The Alex Junior Collection will take your baby from newborn to preschooler.

The new Round the Farm ball from Alex Toys has me wondering... what exactly is it. Depending on which way you turn it it looks like a Dog, a Cat, a Pig, and a Frog.

The Round the Farm ball is a medium sized plush ball perfect for tossing and practicing those first catching and rolling skills. Its not too big for small hands but its big enough that its easy for little ones to manipulate and big enough that each side is distinguished from the other so each animal is easy to make out. Each side is brightly colored with stripped patterns that you will want to roll the ball around just so you can see each of the faces.The best part though is the fact that each "side" has its own set of ears and if you squeeze them the ball makes the sound of the animal who's ears you are squeezing. Safe for babies but interesting enough that even preschoolers will have fun playing catch with it the Round the Farm ball is one of those toys you can get a lot of life out of.

Personally I think it would make a fabulous stocking stuffer for the upcoming holiday season!

You can read more about the Round the Farm ball at Alex Toys and pick up your own over at Amazon or use the store locator!

I have a Round the Farm ball to give away to one lucky reader!
