Since my son was 1 year old, he has loved playing with the animal pieces, lining them up, etc. However, as a shape sorter, this really doesn't work great--some of the opening are so big, that he figured out he could put the smaller pieces inside the bigger holes! I do love that it is Noah's Ark and that he loves playing with it, but it doesn't necessarily work as a shape sorter. Though it does teach problem solving skills (where to put a piece if it doesn't fit somewhere).

Comments about Melissa & Doug Noah's Ark Shape Sorter:

This is for grand-daughter who will be two in several months. I think she will love it as it will help with her imagination play and role playing. It will be such a delight for me to give it to her.

      Comments about Melissa & Doug Noah's Ark Shape Sorter:

      I bought this before even having children to use in our church kids' class and for when the next door neighbors came over. It has been a lifesaver several times when kids are getting restless! You can match the animals and tell the Noah's Ark story, or hide one of the pair and let the kids go on a treasure hunt for it. We also use it to review the names and sounds of the animals. Wonderful, sturdy product- I can't wait to use it for my soon-due little one!

          Comments about Melissa & Doug Noah's Ark Shape Sorter:

          My son got this for his first birthday and even before he could put shapes into their propper place, he loved to see the different animals. Most cute was that he loved to look for Noah. Now that he is almost three he is very proud of himself when he can put the animals into their propper place. He has always enjoyed matching up the pairs and telling me what each animal was. Good use of shape sort that is non traditional shapes.

            Comments about Melissa & Doug Noah's Ark Shape Sorter:

            I recently purchased this item for my son who has speech delay and I use this toy to practice animal sounds as we match the animal to the right cut-out shape on the ark. Since it is Noah's Ark and there are two of each animal I can hold up one of the animal pieces and have my son try to find the "matching" lion for example. Overall, it is a nice durable toy that has become a staple during family play time! Have to also add that I love that this toy does not have flashing/blinking lights, talks or makes any noises at all:-)

                    My son received this as a gift over Christmas, and although most toys eventually ran their course, this is one that he will still play with for a good bit without losing interest. On evenings when he is particularly cranky or when a babysitter comes over, this a toy that will change the mood. There are a lot of little pieces (26), but somehow we've managed to contain them all, and the toy is quite resillient as well. One thing I would caution is that there are sharp edges on the roof of the ark, so if you have a new walker in the house it's something to keep out of the way.
