2.0 out of 5 stars Not great, December 14, 2010

This review is from: Rainbow Sound Blocks (Toy)
I bought these for my 1 year old and for my 3 1/2 year old. The colors of the blocks are not bright like shown. Maybe in front of a bright window in the dead of summer but in a normal lit room they are all dark and hazy looking. It's hard to see the beads and the sound they make are not unique or musical.

The box they come in is wasted and just a source of confusion and annoyance to my children who really want to put the blocks inside. The front and back is open so the blocks just fall out as they try to place them in. Plexy glass or another hard plastic (like the blocks themselves!) would have made a lot of sense for the sides of the box.

A really great idea just needs some tweaking.

My daughter (almost 3) loves putting the shapes inside the box, seeing the different combinations she can get; so I was surprised to read your review. Have you tried showing your children that as long as they have the color sides facing out, that they can get them in? The inside of the box has channels in it, allowing the shapes to be "held" in. It can be tricky for little hands at first, but it's a great thing to help them work on motor skills. Once they get it, they might really enjoy it. :)
