Count the tentacles! One. . . three. . .

This wooden octopus counting toy is adorable!


The only odd thing here is that the tentacles and baby octopi are numbered in a single sequence. It makes sense, I suppose - you want the child to put the numbers in the proper order, and that works better if you're filling gaps between numbers: 1 _ 3 _ 5, etc.

It's just . . . unexpected to see an octopus with a tentacle marked "15."

Wait - a second odd thing is that it has a small parts warning: for 3 yrs & up. Aren't most kids losing interest in basic counting toys by 3-4? Oh well, it's still adorable.
