Rated 5 out of 5Â by Thankateacher Excellent purchase
This beginner pattern block set is an excellent early learning tool. The two-year old that I purchased it for is learning her shapes and colors from the set, as well as seeing shapes within common objects: birds, fish, buildings, trucks, etc. Her mother enjoys the oral communication that this set encourages, as the little girl has a speech disability. The package includes a storage place for the pieces, but I purchased a cloth bag for them. I have already purchased the more challenging magnetic set for her next level of learning. I am a teacher, and this product is a winner!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Sis F needs a lid or case
This toy NEEDS a lid or case of some sort. All our toys go in the toybox except this one, which has to sit out because otherwise the pieces would go everywhere. My 11 month old has discovered the shapes fit perfectly in the slots of the heat/ac vents and we have lost most of them down there, but I dont have a place to put the toy that he can't get to. It isn't a favorite toy to begin with, it was given to my son as a Christmas gift when he was 2 1/2 yr old and he already found it boring, but I've been keeping it for the baby.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Amanda- mother of 2 young boys Great toy!
My son was 2 when he got this puzzle, as we were working on colors and shapes. It was easy enough that he did not get frustrated, and he loved all of the different pictures. Since the puzzles are double sided it was easy to do many puzzles each time we got the box out. He was very proud of recognizing the shapes and putting the different puzzles together. He's 3 now and he still loves the puzzles as much as he did a year ago. A lid with a latch may be nice, but it hasn't stopped us from having fun.

My son and daughter love these pattern block sets! My son (4) has the more advanced set, but still loves to do this one too. My daughter is a little over 2 and enjoys putting the shapes in and flipping over to the pattern on the other side. The shapes are also fun to play with on their own - my son loves to use the wooden box and build all sorts of things with the shapes....fun toy and great buy!
