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.

Real nice toy blocks. My grandson and I put the shapes in the proper spots in the box, then he likes to build towers with them. The reason for buying them was he had been given a set of these but it was missing 3 shapes.

Great... Until the paint comes off

Comments about Melissa & Doug Shape Sorting Cube - Classic Wooden Toy With 12 Shapes:

Baby loved this toy, and so did I until baby had flecks of paint all over her mouth. It's also hard to believe the non-toxic claims when the toys are coming from China.

Comments about Melissa & Doug Shape Sorting Cube - Classic Wooden Toy With 12 Shapes:

This little box is the perfect size for my 10-month-old. She loves grabbing the different shapes. She chews on the pieces, which I bet are a nice change from the usual plastic toys that she chomps. She hasn't figured out how to sort the shapes yet, but I trust it will entertain her in the months to come.
