Description: The Giant Rock-A-Stack is the "Big Daddy" of all Fisher-Price Rock-A-Stacks. The toy has a base that rocks from side to side with a tall cone in the center to stack plastic rings onto. The rings graduate in size and color spectrum to teach children basic shapes and colors. The Giant Rock-A-Stack is a bit more challenging than the traditional #627 Rock-A-Stack because the Giant has a whopping 10 rings to stack and it measures 11-5/8" tall all togehter. Costs were cut in 1980 reducing the number of rings to 7 and reducing the height.....it was nice while it lasted! Designed for children ages 6 months to 3 years old.
