Product Description

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. Quality craftsmanship and classic design make this a toy that never goes out of style, and its sturdy construction ensures it will last through years of hands-on play and learning. The shape sorting cube helps teach sorting skills, color and shape recognition, and helps children develop and hone fine motor skills.

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.

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

    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.

        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

          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.
