Rated 2 out of 5Â by Em8484 Good, but not great
I really wanted a shape sorter for my daughter & was disappointed when this arrived. The blocks themselves are great - love the bright colors - perfect for sorting games. And, the shapes fit into the slots fine.
However, my main complaint is that the top is TOO easy to remove. When my daughter moves the box to find the slot for the shape, the top slides right out. It really should have some sort of feature that locks it into place while in use. Plus, I wish it was painted also (but, that's a personal preference).
It's a good shape sorter, but not great.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by grandmaIN old fashioned toys are better!
This grandma is always delighted to find the toys I remember my children playing with at home and in kindergarten/preschool--"no batteries required". When I got this shape sorting box, I worried it would be a little advanced for my granddaughter for her 2nd birthday. But she caught on quickly that a shape wouldn't fit just anywhere, and while some were more difficult than others, with a little prompting, she was able to fit them in, and her face had such a sense of accomplishment--she was delighted with herself!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Disappointed Teacher Flimsy and Splintered
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 :(
