Number of different shapes
Number labeling tiles
Paint quality on shapes seems good
1. The shapes are not appropriately matched to numbers. For example, one is a trapezoid instead of a circle or oval. Five is a rhombus not a pentagon. Six is an octagon. Eight is a hexagon. Ten is a pentagon. A little more planning should have been done instead of randomness.
2. The shapes can't all fit on any slot without overlapping so less fun for young children who can't get sort correctly.
3. The labeling tiles slide around. Ideally there would be dividers that hold them in place.
Neutral comments: there are tons of little pieces with this toy, obviously and my kids like to play with them like confetti, so I keep it out away unless I sit down to help them with it. That is, of course, obligatory for this type of toy so I don't fault the toy design in any way.
The shapes on the Ten peg were off - I got 3 pentagons (matching the label) and 7 hexagons in the same color. I simply called the company (whose number is on the bottom of the toy) and they mailed me replacements. Love that!
All in all, my kids got some number/color practice with it and the shapes have come in handy for our math lessons, since it's not just anywhere you can usually find a rhombus or a trapezoid lying around. The colors are vibrant and the assembly is sturdy.
What bugs me - and made me rate it 1* - is that as an educational toy it is totally confusing. Who decided that a 6 should be represented by an octagon (8 sides. 8, not 6!). Then, 8 gets a hexagon (6!!!). When we get to 10, I don’t even care about pentagon anymore. Cognitive dissonance at its best!
He’s isnt 3 yet and knows his shapes and WHY his shape are called what they are. He also know his numbers and in what order they go. I really can’t say enough about the educational bennifits of this toy.
He dumps the thing and pieces go EVERYWHERE. One is still missing.
