Overall Good Toy - Hard to get shapes out of sorter
on January 30, 2013
I actually love the quality on this item, I mean Hape is always awesome. The paint does not chip off when your child puts it into her mouth (and she will). The blocks have little things inside them so they double as rattles. Overall I was very happy with this toy, but I have to say that my daughter has another (much cheaper) shape sorter which she likes much better. She gets so frustrated trying to pull the shapes out of the shape sorter. I guess I thought the doors open but they don't. The only way to get the shapes out of the sorter is to bypass the string. It doesn't sound that hard, but I can hear her grunts of frustration from the kitchen. Its still a cool toy, great for manipulating with tiny fingers, putting into tiny mouths, learning colors and shapes and making noise...the only downside is the darn string!
