Should have bought a plastic version
on March 11, 2012
The problem with this product is that a baby can just stuff the shapes into the wrong slots as they are soft. It does not hold them back the way a plastic version would, so how are they supposed to learn their shapes? Also, the lid on the top is very prominent, so my son either puts the shapes in through that way, or just stuffs them through the wrong hole. Plus, the shapes are big so that they fill up the inside quickly, making it hard to fit them in all together (even when going through the correct hole). At first I thought that when he got older he would use it properly, but now my son is 15 months and I just don't see that happening. The fabric is nicely sewed and vibrant, however. It was nice to roll the shapes and shake them when he was younger, but now it is useless to me and I will have to buy a plastic one. Wish I knew this before, now it is another toy lying around.
