From the manufacturer
This classic wooden shape sorter is fun cubed! The beautifully crafted toy features smooth, natural wood, dove-tail joints, a slide-off lid, and 12 cut-out shapes in four of the sides. The 12 brightly colored solid wood shapes are easy for little hands to grasp and make a wonderful 'clunk' as they drop in the shape sorting cube. Fit the pieces in the matching holes, then dump them out and do it again! An illustrated guide on the label helps identify the names of the shapes — from a triangle and a trapezoid to a parallelogram to a pentagon.
Shape Their Skills
The shape sorting cube helps teach sorting skills, color and shape recognition, and helps children develop and hone fine motor skills. It encourages problem-solving and builds hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity. See confidence and self-esteem grow as children two and older rise to the challenge of matching the shapes to the correct holes.

Although I know this response may be overdue, I am sorry to hear about your experience with the shape sorting cube. I would like to help you out with this right away. I also wanted to take a moment to assure you that we at Melissa & Doug take safety and testing of our toys very seriously. We had an isolated recall in Canada for a small quantity of this toy 7 years ago. We immediately took several steps to further control our suppliers and increase our inspections to assure accurate testing and safety of our toys. Please call me at 800 284 3948 so that I can make this right for you.
Unfortunately, the shapes fit through any hole in the sorter, so the child isn't really learning much of anything. Plus, the lid is impossible for a small child to keep on while they're playing with it -- even my older son (now 4) has trouble with it!
I've also found that it gets so crowded in there that the shapes don't always fit well when you're fitting in the last few. You need to shake the sorter so that the shapes settle to the bottom. Another issue that I have with this product is, several of the pieces are small enough to fit INTO a small child's mouth -- our younger son, 18 mos, has proven that on several occasions! The plastic ones we have from the other shape sorter are all a bit larger than these pieces, and I think safer. We keep this shape sorter up on a high shelf, to be played with on a rainy day with supervision. It's not a toy I'd leave out for everyday play.
