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.

      Got as a gift for my 2yr. I like it because it helps for him to learn his colors and shapes and helps with space relation. There is even a harder shape for him. I would tell a friend about the product, plus I have always been a fan of the brand

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

        Although it is a good value for the price, it is made of thin wood. Several blocks appear to be the same and are easily confused with others. The stickers (not shown in this photo) are meant as packaging, and aren't removable. I was unaware of this and attempted to remove them, only to rip these stickers and leave behind piece of ripped sticker. It looks absolutely horrible and I am extremely disappointed.

          Best Uses

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

            The product information panel should be the bottom panel that slides in and out to retrieve the shaped blocks. This would provide another panel for additional shapes as well as remain secure when rotating the box. As one of the sorting panels is the sliding panel it slides out of the box when turning the box to insert more shapes. This was not well thought out and not up to Melissa and Doug design quality.

                  Bought this for my son's 2nd birthday. He loves it. I love that the shapes are a bit complex. I had to chuckle at the quatrefoil and parallelogram shapes. My son has had it for a week and knows all the shapes, still working on putting them in correctly. It's a bit challenging as the wood is rough. I think the more we use it, the better it will be. I highly highly recommend.
