Nice little shape sorterMay 17, 2010
I bought this recently for my nine month old. I can't imagine why the packaging says age two.
I like the safe features (nontoxic, not made in China, double hinge on the lid so no pinched fingers) and the overall design (pieces are too small to be a choking hazard, six is a good number of shapes, shapes are all distinct, and the box aspect gives more open ended play value).
So far, this is only the second "toy" to really catch her eye. She likes to open the box to take out the shapes. She has put the shapes back in and also some little finger puppets. She laughs when the finger puppets poke their faces out of the holes. When she opens it all the way the hinge catches nicely so it stays open. When you put down the lid there is a second catch so it never slams down on little fingers. It makes a satisfying noise and she laughs at the bang. And then does it again looking at me for my reaction. My toddler has been using it as a dinosaur boat. It is nice that it has a life outside just shape sorting.
We had the lousy Melissa and Doug shape shorter for my first but it was really advanced play (so many similar shapes, bad box design) and recalled in Canada so I threw it away and found this one instead.

Favorite Sorter IMPORTANT NOTE!!!Nov 29, 2010
I got this for our son for his first birthday and he got two different shape sorters from friends... This is by far the favored one! So far he can only get the circle in the correct hole but it still holds his attention because he can lift the lid and throw the others in (makes a great sound!). It's easy to cary, has good colors, and the shapes are the perfect size for his little hands. That said, there is one down-side:
*We have a little friend who has a sever allergy to latex (she's had three anaphylactic reactions and is not yet two). When I received this toy I read the included material from the company (Thank God!!), and noticed that it is made out of rubber wood (the trees natural latex is taken from). This toy would be DEADLY to our friend! We have to make sure it's put away in a closet when she comes over. I don't want to scare people out of buying this terrific toy (it has been great for my son), but I know how much trouble my friend has had to go through to eliminate latex from their home and I like to help where I can. Before they found out about her allergy I didn't even know latex came from trees, so I'm just trying to spread the word for other parents who are dealing with this allergy, latex is EVERYwhere! I hope this helps make the world safer for our friend!!*

Satisfied MotherJul 25, 2011
By Mom' Reviewin
After researching lots of suggestions for my family as to what toys to get my daughter for her 1st birthday, I settled on this and a few others. I've become increasingly tired of plastic in our home that is coated with god-knows-what and breaks after 3 days of use. This toy is a wonderful, non-toxic learning game that the birthday girl and her 3 year old sister love. They have abused it greatly in the month since we got it, and there is no chipped paint or broken hinges. The toy looks like it will last forever, bringing generations of toddlers the satisfaction of matching the shapes to their intended slots before opening it up and dumping out the pieces to start over again. I cannot recommend this enough to not only the eco-conscious, but to everyone!

Well made shape sorterSep 12, 2010
By T. Miguens
Great fun for 9 month old. Solid construction, paint has not chipped on any pieces after several months of rough play. Hinges are fantastic, no worries about getting stuck or pinched.

Warning: Shapes are Small Enough to Choke?Dec 24, 2011
I want to love this toy, I really do. From the high quality eco-friendly wood to the happy workers pictured on the insert, it should be a winner. I was a litte shocked how small the shapes are however. Unfortunately 4 of the 6 shapes are small enough to easily fit though a toilet paper tube. Maybe I'm overly paranoid, but I thought that was the test for a choking hazard. I don't think that changes much by the listed 18 months. I love the swing up doors though, so we are keeping it to work on putting things away and taking things out with our 9 month old twins. I know they will get a kick out of banging the doors open and shut. Just another 1/2-3/4 inch diameter on all the shapes and this would be perfect. The Wonderworld Peek-A-Boo ball has been a huge hit, so I will keep buying from this company. Bummed that this one can't be used as it was meant to be.
