I am a Head Start teacher and the Melissa & Doug Shape Sequence Sorting Set
was donated (brand new) to our classroom community, we have 20 children aged 3 to 5 enrolled. I was excited when I set it out in our math area, because I love Melissa and Doug toys (they are inviting, durable, and they offer many levels of open ended play) and this did not disappoint me. This awesome learning toy is utilized every day by students of both genders and varying levels of development. Here are some of the ways I have observed my students playing with the Shape Sequence Sorting Set:

- The way it was intended, as an open ended sequence puzzle that has more than one possible solution, this was how I introduced it and almost everyone tried it and eventually accomplished it. (Cool early math)

- I have "caught" more advanced students quizzing younger students saying, hand me the tallest ones, the blue one, the triangle....etc. (Boy did I praise them for this and now it is a common occurrence in my classroom ... yay)!

- Using the pieces without the board to stack a tower that stays up. (Great for improving spatial understanding)

- Creating an impromptu dollhouse by using the blocks as furniture, and props from our block area (Dramatic play)!

All in all, this is a solid asset to help young children learn and discover many different academic concepts through play. It would be great addition to an early childhood program as well as to any home with a young child. I promise to update my review with more observations, as my brilliant class find new and fun ways to play!

Bonus: My class is notorious for losing pieces to puzzle like toys (I think it is almost unavoidable in a classroom setting) but we have had this for 4 months ....and we still have all the pieces!

A good buy, my 23 month old loves this one! I love it too, with the extension activities there is a lot or room to grow with this puzzle.

Something no one else mentioned, which I was delighted to see when I got this toy, is that there are instructions on the back of the base which explain different ways to play with this toy with your child. I found these directions very helpful.

I think this is a very well made product. I thought my daughter would enjoy it more than she did. I think she may be a little old for it. She played with for 2 days then became bored with it. She was just over 3 when I ordered it. Perhaps a younger child would have more interest. Overall I love the product and the quality.

My little boy got this for his second birthday and has really enjoyed it in the month since. The pieces vary by shape, size, and color, so it is good for learning those things. It's not very difficult for him to assmeble, but he's found other fun ways of playing with it. (Like stacking the blocks and knocking them over.) A nice, wooden puzzle

The toy is well made. The pieces are smooth and sturdy and the colors are vibrant. The pieces allow for matching shapes, colors and sizes. The pieces fit together well and are just the right size for little hands (ages 18 mo and up.) The puzzle pieces fit together in several ways, so it "grows" with the child. They also stack like blocks in a variety of ways that challenge little ones. Or, if they are really little, the pieces may challenge siblings, cousins, parents or grands to stack them up high so the little ones can knock them down. Giggles will ensue.

March 2013: Edited to up to 5 stars. As our little one has grown, this toy continues to captivate. She's 2yrs 3mo and really likes this toy. She has mastered the colors AND the shapes and enjoys not only assembling the puzzle, but also likes to build towers of matching colors with the blocks. It's a very nice toy.

I'd like to start this review with the positive.

The design of this puzzle is WAY cooler than the photo would lead you to believe. It looks like so much fun, and based on the DESIGN, I'd say you should run out and buy this for your child right away.

But the QUALITY of this puzzle? Oh, my. The quality is ATROCIOUS. Melissa & Doug should not only be ashamed of themselves for the quality of this puzzle, but, frankly, the Consumer Product Safety Commission needs to be aware of the absolute junk this company is churning out for young children.

Straight out of the shrink-wrap, this toy looks like it's 20 years old. The pieces are cracked. The paint was chipped and scratched. The paint job itself is completely irregular and the shapes are off-centered; and debris was stuck to the product during the painting process, which resulted in a low-quality, highly-flawed paint job. Most importantly, though, the wood this puzzle is made out of is rougher than sandpaper on all surfaces and full of extremely dangerous splintered edges.

We own countless wooden toys that are soft, well-sanded, and have high-quality finishes. I know Melissa & Doug is not up to the same standard as a lot of European Toy Makers, but I would have never, in a million years, expected to receive a dangerous and unusable toy.

I have included images of this "toy" so you can see for yourself that, as awesome as the design is, if you are concerned about your child's safety, you need to stay far away from this one.
