Product Description

Product Description

Playskool Form Fitter

Amazon.com

Playskool has been making the same shape-sorting toy for so many years, parents may worry about their own regression rather than their child's. For young children, however, the Form Fitter is still reliably educational. The big, bold, yellow cube has cutout shapes on each side; three per side make each of the six sides look like a different, silly face. The cookie-cutter pieces in blue, green, and red get matched up and dropped in. Be aware that some of the shapes look very similar, so it takes practicing shape discrimination to get it just right. There's an extra clue built into the Form Fitter, too: each side has a different texture, and the shapes that fit in that side have the same texture. When all the shapes are done, one side flips up to release them from their cubed cage, letting preschool learning run free one more time. --Lynne Sampson

If you look at the reviews on this toy, you'll see that they skip 6 years between 2002 and 2008!! What's with that?? Just reading the first reviews before I ordered, I thought I was getting a shape sorter with 18 shapes! Well those were the people that gave it 5 stars.......back in 1999. The latest positive reviews are mostly from people who ordered this and are excited because they'll be getting the same toy for their grandchildren that they remember having years ago. (in other words they hadn't received it yet when reviewing) Well this isn't that toy! Playskool has cheapened it up BIG TIME. It only has 9 shapes now, amazon should really remove the reviews here that pertain to a totally different toy! I would have never ordered it had I skipped back several pages in the reviews to find the truth! Having the #1 review be from 1999 is a little misleading!! Also the shapes are cheap and hollow with only the top being solid, and the bottom is "open" to the hollow interior. (not shown in any pics, misleading again) The entire thing is just cheap junk now with not enough shapes to make it stand out from other nicer shape sorters out there. Would NOT recommend this toy unless Playskool gets a clue and starts making the 18 shapes people are expecting.

I purchased this toy for my 97 year old father who has a bit of dementia and also needs to exercise his motor skills. It keeps him busy for the longest. He does try to insert the parts into the wrong places, but he finally puts them where they belong. A great toy/exercise game for a senior with dementia and who needs to exercise his hands. My grandson also uses it when he comes over.

I thought that this toy would be a great value for the money because you got so many different colored shapes, etc. However, I've learned that variety is not always the best thing--especially when it comes to mastering sorting skills.
The main drawback of this toy is that there are 18 different shapes to sort, and each shape fits one and only one hole. Imagine if you will, your average toddler who is just learning shapes and fine motor skills trying to master such a complicated task. Incredibly, it took both my husband and I several minutes to sort them because you have to turn the cube over and over looking for the right hole, and some of the shapes are only slightly different. There is absolutely no way that your average toddler could succeed at this task.
This toy is colorful and my daughter does enjoy dumping the shapes out, but there are many other shape sorters out there that have a skill level that's more appropriate for a toddler. Lamaze makes a great soft shape sorter, and Fisher-Price has one that only has three types of shapes to sort. I'd recommend either of those over this one.

This shape sorter is very challenging for an 18 mo. old. I have to show my daughter where to put the shapes & then she can usually get them in with a little work. She is now almost 2. I do think it will become more interesting to her in the coming year. I also found the removable side to be very annoying as whenever my daughter tries to open the box the side comes off and then an adult has to put it back on.

My daughter has had this since she was about 4 months old. Shes 8 months old now and still loving it! One day she'll actually be able to put the blocks in the holes. But, for now, she's happy just banging them on things and throwing them with her newfound motorskills. Lol

At a mid-1970's World Game Seminar lead by the famous geodesic dome inventer Richard Buckminster Fuller, he mentioned in passing that he learned a lot about education by watching small children, including newborns, at play. A woman asked him what was his favorite teaching toy and he named the "PlaySkool Form-Fitter" as the single best educational plaything for kids from 0 to 3 years of age. Fuller said he liked it because, compared to copies of it, it: 1.) did not roll away from the child and make the child frustrated or angry, 2.) it and all its parts could be put in a dishwasher for sanitizing, 3.) the pieces were large enough not to be swallowed, and 4.) that it was extremely inexpensive for what it did. Basically, Fuller explained, this toy helps a baby most rapidly wire its brain, speedily making the connections between the synapses and neurons. He gave it to the parents of friends with new babies. Since I learned that, this is the only toy I buy in cartons to give to friends with new children. IMHO, it is the world's best toy for ages Zero to 3.

I was searching for a simple shape sorter. Many shape sorters have shapes that are not easily described. For the very young, shapes need to be the most basic and easy to describe. I also was looking for more than 4-5 shapes. This one has 9, so it has a good variety. This toy delivers just what toddlers need. My little guy loves it and is getting very, very good at working it.

I bought this for my boys as a replacement because the other one we had was broken. My kids really have fun playing with this. I like that it has more shapes than most shape sorters I've seen. It's also really easy for them to open it to get the shapes out. The only thing I don't like about it, which isn't such a big deal, is the color. They are sent randomly and the one we got is in pastel colors. The kids didn't seem to care though. Great product overall.
