Product Description

Amazon.com

Circles, squares, triangles, hearts, and stars! Little ones will delight in their ability to sort and stack these colorful, spongy shapes on glossy wooden pegs. The Shape and Color Sorter helps preschoolers and kindergartners learn the essential skills of hand-eye coordination, shape and color recognition, and sorting. Brightly colored and fun to touch, the 25 crepe rubber pieces are nearly indestructible. In fact, this set exceeds standards set by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission. Still, the product is not meant for children who may put objects in their mouths. Comes with a 3.75-by-11.5-inch base panel and five removable "punkin-head pegs." --Joan DeClaire

Product Description

From basic pegging to the challenges of sorting by shape and color, little ones love this time-tested favorite. Inviting, chunky, colorful shapes—bumpy on one side and smooth on the other—slide over the wooden pegs on the sorting board. The Shape & Color Sorter promotes finger dexterity, hand-eye coordination and sorting skills. Lauri crepe rubber is bright, durable, soft, latex-free and washable!

Four different mothers have asked where I got this toy! The wooden pegs and crepe rubber pieces just have a great feel. My toddler loves it. He becomes absorbed with fitting the pegs into the holes and sorting and re-sorting the shapes onto the pegs. This is a quiet toy, which makes it ideal to take along to restaurants or church. Even better: if any pieces get lost, you can phone for replacements. The shapes can also be used as a first lacing toy -- my son likes to string them on a shoelace. The pieces are washable, too, which is great in a toddler toy. And don't think this toy is just for toddlers: a visiting 5-year-old friend was having so much fun playing with it that she didn't want to quit when it was time to leave!

I saw all the good reviews for this, and bought it for my 2 year old daughter for this last Christmas. She loves it. She already knew her colors, and shapes, and this toy just reinforces it. She loves sorting the pieces into same colors and also same shape. When they are older you can help them to learn patterns with the toy. I think it would be an awesome tool for teaching colors and shapes to kids who don't already know them. I was actually suprised that she chose to play with this toy more than any of the other "lights camera action" toys she got for Christmas. Although, if you have a dog, keep the pieces away. My dog has chewed several of the shapes, so some of them are missing corners, and have bite marks in them . But on the up side of that, the Lauri company replaces pieces for something like 25 Cents.

After I saw a completely wooden version of this toy at a friend's house, I jumped into buying it for my 16 month old without carefully reading what it was made of. I was surprised to receive a package so light for a toy I thought was all wood. I would have preferred the shapes to be made of wood because the foam shapes bend and thus stick to the pegs when my child tries to pull them off. Since the pegs are not attached to the base, which is also very light, they easily come out when a piece is being removed and your child might not be able to put them back securely to continue playing. On the positive side, it is safer to have foam pieces scattered around a toddler who will inadvertently step all over them. My daughter is just as preoccupied with this sorter as she was with the wooden version at my friend's house.

I bought this for my 18 month old son. He was immediately drawn to the bright colors. I think he also likes the texture of the pieces (he likes to carry them around with him a lot, which unfortunately means we are always looking for missing pieces). He didn't know his shapes and colors very well before he got this toy, but it only took him about 20 minutes to figure out how to sort the pieces. He's very proud of himself and claps and cheers each time he successfully sorts the pieces by color or shape. The only thing I don't really like about this toy is that the pegs come out of the base. Sometimes it's hard for my son to pull one piece off a peg without pulling the whole thing out. Then he gets frustrated and throws the peg across the room. Overall, I'm pleased with the quality of this toy and feel happy I bought it.

The package did not mention that it was a choking hazard for children under 3!!! I plan to complain to the manufacturer. Its definitely a hazard if your child is still teething -- my 19 mo son who still likes to chew up stuff decimated a piece. I luckily fished out the red star in four pieces from his mouth before he could swallow and get into any trouble.
So while I no longer give the toy to him, I plan to once he is over the chewing stage since he loved fitting the pegs back, and stacking and sorting and it definitely kept him educationally engaged. 3 stars on the durability since while he can chew it up, its an engaging toy, and my friends 3 yr olds enjoy the toy too. Also, Lauri replaces pieces for [a nominal fee.]

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Karen on September 1, 2004
My mom bought this toy for my daughter, then 18 months, in Hawaii. The fact that it is easily assembled and lightweight make it great for traveling. My daughter, who loves shapes, played with it every day. Now, at 20 months, she keeps asking for it, every morning. Because it is easily assembled, she has learned to do this on her own, which I think is another benefit of this toy. I am always thrilled when I come into the room and all the circles are stacked up on one peg, or all the blue shapes are stacked up on the blue peg, this is a great learning toy. Also, I remember reading the box insert that said you can contact the manufacturer to get replacement pieces if you lose one.

I purchased this toy for my 15 month old daughter. She plays with it every day, placing the shapes on the pegs. She is learning to match colors on the pegs, but will also use the pieces as "food" for her dolls and stuffed animals. She also likes to remove and replace the wooden pegs themselves. The foam rubber base and shape pieces seem very durable, although my daugher is past the 'put everything in your mouth' phase so I don't know how they would hold up to being chewed. All in all, she seems to be having alot of fun with this toy, is hopefully learning color and shape recognition and gaining fine motor skills.
