Try sitting your baby by the balls roller-coaster. You can roll the balls down the ramps and ask your baby to retrieve them at the trap door at the base of the coaster. This will encourage the development of motor skills & object permanence, the understanding that objects exist even when they cannot be seen. As your child begins to stand he will master this task independently.
You can teach concepts of color by asking your child to match the colored ball to the matching color chute. Count along with your baby while you stack balls in the numbered chutes. At the age of 1.5-2 years, ask your toddler to use the colored shaped sorter keys to retrieve the balls from inside the tent.

He can pop his head out the front opening or peek at you through the holes on each side. This will develop his sense of object permanence.
