My 3 year old loves this set!
on October 20, 2012
I got this set for my 3 year old. I was looking for things to encourage fine motor skills, and thought this would be exciting for him since he loves the book so much.
The cards are very rich in color (just like the book), and printed on thick cardboard. However, my son ended up bending one on the first day (ugh). I would have preferred each card had a matching shape, color, or number on the back so he could easily find the match. As it is, it's a bit difficult for him to figure out on his own.
The string included is very nice, thick shoestring style laces, bold colors, and easy for little hands to manipulate. My only wish here, is that instead of having the laces open on both ends, they should have put a stopper on one end. This way when my son passes the lace through the whole he knows how far to pull it, and it won't come through the other end. It's also difficult for him to gauge how much string to pull through to make it across the entire board; can get around this by tying a knot on one end.
My 3 year old needs assistance figuring out how to lace these for sure, but he enjoys it. The box is nice and makes a great gift for any little one.
