Product Description

Amazon.com

Children are endlessly taking things apart and putting them together, only to pull them apart again. This ageless game is capitalized upon by the award-winning Geometric Sorting Board. It focuses on attention-getting, easily grasped shapes that come in four colors. The challenge is to find which shape fits on which set of pegs. The circles have one hole, the rectangles two, the triangles three, and the squares four. They are perfectly sized to fit on a finger, too. Making different color patterns, counting, or stating the color before putting it on the 7-inch square wood base adds interest as your child develops a skill. Note: Winner of the Good Toy Award from Parent magazine. --Lynne Sampson

A colorful, educational toy and very well made!
Karen Sperduto
In any case, chances are you can find a plethora of ways to use this toy - if the kids will allow it.

Good montessori style toys that teach colors, shapes and good hand eye coordination and motor skills.

Don't adhere too closely to the age guide on this one. A younger toddler can begin a process of discovery by simply trying to place the shapes on the pegs. (Most of the shapes will fit only on the correct pegs) With a little parental guidance toddlers can see and feel that the two holes fit on the two pegs. Once they grasp that concept they really can take off. Even if everything isn't quite "right" by adult standards, it is still fun and if put away for a week or so, skills will invariably improve with each additional play session. The skills learned on this game seem to transfer remarkably well to other activities.

Two stars were deducted because one of the pegs fell out which required a re-gluing. Otherwise, this product, like all other Plan Toys' products, uses replenishable rubber tree wood and vegetable dyes for coloring, and is smooth and well-machined -- good for the little one who sticks everything in her mouth. On the same token, the loose peg was small enough to pose a serious choking hazard and I always make a habit of regularly inspecting this toy -- something I should do with all toys anyway.

Great for sorting, development of small motor skills, and shape and color recognition. This is a wonderful, open-ended toy. Beautifully made and sturdy. Ours has been with us through three kids and 6 years and still looks as good as ever. I wish more companies put as much thought into their toys. Plan Toys makes some of the best toys you can buy and they are reasonably priced if you consider how long they'll last.

I purchased this for my son (who was 18m at the time) thinking that it would be a good first introduction to shapes and colors. It really was! He took to it right away and (for all you tired mothers and fathers out there) he stuck with it for a good half hour! It has pegs for each of the shapes and at first, he was having a little difficulty putting the appropriate shape on the right group of pegs, but he soon figured it out. The holes in the shapes are large enough so it is not difficult at all to put the shapes on the pegs - sometimes the problem with traditional puzzles. It is durable - made of really nice wood - made to last! I love wooden toys - just for the sake of durability and longevity - and this one is really worth it because you really get your money's worth. Just be careful - as with all puzzle pieces...they are easy to lose around the house.

I'll confess, I was fairly undecided on whether this toy would be any actual fun. But since my two year old is really into shapes, colors, and simple numbers and I've just confiscated all the scary Melissa & Doug (see:toxic) puzzles in their collection, I thought this might stand as a fair replacement.

The kids, 23 months & 4 years, both immediately loved it; ie. The youngest immediately took control of the toy whilst being loudly scolded by the bossy 4-year old on how she wasn't assembling it correctly(!!!!), which quickly spun out of control, and ended up in a draw with both of them letting out an ear-splitting screech. In toddler/preschooler world, I suppose this is a "two-thumbs up."

After the dust settled, I took a look-see at this new toy, and received a few reprimands from the 4-year old on my unorthodox experiments with it. Namely the totally cool discovery that this toy not only teaches about colors, shapes numbers, with a little dexterity thrown in, but it also fits the bolts and nails that come with the Green Toys Tool Set they own, and that it also makes a whole new 'wardrobe' for their Turnello the Mouse toy that they received for Christmas. My youngest, had she not been in such a tizzy at this point might have approved, but my four-year old insisted this kind of out-of-the-box thinking was a highly unacceptable use of a toy with only one stated purpose.

Against her explicit warning, and under her disapproving eye, I continued to compose a little car - that would even roll for a time - though the nuts inevitably fell off, and thus the 'wheels' detached.

We bought this toy for our 1-year old son at Christmas last year (2009). He's now 22 months. This toy has offered fun and learning for different stages throughout the last year. And it's one of those toys my son keeps going back to over and over. When he first started playing with it, the challenge was simply for him to get the shapes on the pegs. Then he began learning the name of the shapes, then he was counting the number of holes in the shapes and now it's the colors of the shapes. Great investment! Lots of time spent playing w/ this simple (and simply wonderful) toy.

My daughter received this as a birthday gift when she turned 1, and I remember thinking, 'This toy looks boring. She'll never play with it.' I was wrong, wrong, wrong: It is one of the best toys she has (and, trust me, she has A LOT). My daughter is 2 now, and she still plays with this almost every day. Now that she's 2, she can do all sorts of things with it, and I see that she creates challenges for herself--she'll stack them all by color (blues first, then reds, etc.), or she'll name the shape and color before putting the shape into its corresponding peg, or she'll try to see what shapes can fit into the other pegs. Sometimes she'll use components of this toy when playing with other toys. Basically, this is a great, versatile and very educational toy. And it's made very well.
