Hoot is adorable. But there’s more to him than just good looks. He helps kids hone their preschool skills, letting them practice pincer grips by spinning his eyes, boost their hand strength by squeaking his nose, and developing hand-eye coordination by dropping coins into his slot. Once the coins are inside, kids use scissor skills to flap Hoot’s wings and send them falling back out again. The thing is, well, a hoot.
