This is a great toy; it could be excellent.

I'm surprised that in a classic shape-sorting toy:
1. There is no circle.
2. Both the rectangle and the square are dark green and very similar in dimension.
3. The lid easily slides off during "sorting".
4. Two sides of the cube have no shape slots, but the lid, which can be accidentally lost, has three shape slots.

Great things about it:
1. Top-of-the-line Melissa and Doug wooden construction - sturdy and (non-toxic) colorful.
2. 3-D shapes are easy for small, chubby baby hands to hold.
3. Sorting box easily holds ALL of the shapes at once - no need to shake them "down".
4. 3-D shapes are interesting to feel and interesting to view from different angles.
5. There is a great variety of shapes (with exception of the "missing" circle), offering a learning curve for children. In other words, they're not all easy to do the first time.
6. The names and 2-D photos of each shape are printed on the back label. I even learned a new shape name! (Quatrefoil, the "clover" shape)

There are many of these "Shape and sort" type toys on the market,and I wanted something a little better than average.I had read good things about this company, and the cost being somewhat pricey (compared to other like toys)I decided to purchase this one. Well, you can't judge on price; the more it costs does not mean it's better. The quality of the toy is good,except the top of the toy is not secured. If it gets turned over, and it does, everything falls out and you have a very frustrated child.She got tired of it after only 5 minutes. They really need to fix this designing problem before selling anymore. And send a fix-it kit to those with the bad lids.

    Flimsy and Splintered

    By Disappointed Teacher

    from Illinois

    Comments about Melissa & Doug 12-Piece Wooden Shape-Sorting Cube:

    I was given this as a gift for my classroom and it is very poor quality. I only got it a couple months ago and the wood is already separating and splintering. The top slides out too easily and falls out when students turn the box to find the correct shape. Some of the shapes look to similar and students get easily frustrated with it. I love Melissa and Doug, but this product was a dud :(

    Disappointed

    By Grandma's house

    from Maryland

    Comments about Melissa & Doug 12-Piece Wooden Shape-Sorting Cube:

    Poor quality. The wood is thin and splinters easily. The sliding door is too loose and nearly slides off when turning the cube. There is no circle/cylindrical shape. I've bought lots of Melissa & Doug toys through the years but this is not at all what I expected from them.

      I like that it has 12 different geometrical shapes. More than any ther toy in the market for 18 months. I like that my son will learn about these shapes at very young age. The only reason that I didn't give 5 starts is because the cube is not that sturdy, specially the lid. Actually I think one of these days my son will break it.
