My Thoughts: Shape Sorter’s are a must have for every child. There is so much to learn from them and they are so fun. I remember when my girls were babies and they played with their shape sorter they would get so excited when the put the proper shape in the proper spot. Of course they got frustrated when they couldn’t find the right spot too, but that is all part of the learning process. Not everything is always going to work the first time – just keep trying and that is what they did.
And Little Tikes just keeps making these better and better including the basic shape sorter. The new Little Tikes DiscoverSounds Shape, Sort and Scatter is adorable. The shapes all have cute little faces on them – so they are more like ‘friends’ then toys. I think visually this is so much more exciting for the babies. And the color of the shape corresponds with the color of the opening it goes in. So it’s a great coloring matching game as well. But the most fun part I think is the sounds it makes. Seriously my 5-year-old played with this over and over again when her little friend came over and loved it. She would be bored pretty quickly with it, but not the baby.
But as the babies get older, this shape sorter will teach them their colors and shapes because there are games you can play where they will have to put the right color or shape in and they will know when they are right and when they are wrong. So seriously you’ll save some money on preschool with this toy!
This is definitely a nice improvement to the traditional shape sorter and so much more fun. If it’s at the top of your Christmas list keep reading and see how you can win one!
