great back-to-basics toy that engages gross and fine motor skills as well as cognitive skills and problem solving. I love that it's made of wood but is still colorful and fun which keeps my baby's attention. I am laughing at these reviews... #1 on the list is complaining about having to show a toddler how to do something? smh... feel like that's the point when you're raising a child. 2nd place goes to the several of you that are very upset about the lid's ability to slide off. if it's such an issue or your kid is too lazy to keep playing the way it's intended, tape it shut 😱 honorable mention goes to the OCD parent losing it over not including a circle...I just pray the crazy doesn't pass down.

Door slides open and does not stay put. How is my kid supposed to use this if she just sees one big side open and figure it’s just easier to put the shapes directly into the box instead of into their corresponding slots. Waste of time and money

Love the box and the colors on the shapes, but the lid is very loose. It falls out when the cube is turned wrong. Should be easy to fix.

The door doesn’t stay shut so as the toddler moves the cube around to find the right hole, the top slides off and everything falls back out!

Simple and straight forward. My 1 year old loves to carry the wooden crate around and fill it up with the blocks.

Claire - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
Bought these in advance. My baby is old enough now that he can start "playing" with the blocks. He has been playing with them on and off for about a week. DISAPPOINTED. Wow, the paint scrapes off very easy, and apparently the wood is soft yet dry and brittle. I took a picture. Waste of money. I wonder what the return policy is because my son will no longer be playing with these.

I got this for our 11mo thinking the wooden blocks would help her learn shapes. What happened to squares, circles and triangles? This has a quadrafoil, rhombus, parallelogram, trapezoid, hexagon, pentagon, octagon etc... these are not shapes my baby can differentiate. Plus several very similar shapes are painted the same color so she can’t even figure them out by color. This might be good for a teenager having trouble with geometry but not a baby/toddler. She does like to bang them together and dump them in the box but learning shapes may take some time. I’ll be looking for one a little simpler.

I love the fun bright colors, and the same basic principle that comes along with a Melissa & Doug product, however, I was disappointed wit this one. It wasn't fine tuned emough- I bought it for my nearly-two-toddler. And upon fitting the pieces the first time. The pieces were splintering because they were made of just wood. And lightly painted. I would not recommend this for anyone under 3. Or is teething. Side Note: some of the pieces were very similar in shape. I loved the versatility of the shapes but my little one got frustrated because of their similarity. But maybe that was just my son. Lol

I'm sure this fits well over standard faucets, but it fits not fit the tub faucet in our home & it isn't adjustable in any way.

My 17 month old loves this! He loves trying to figure out what shapes go where, he's starting to try and repeat the colors as I say them and the shapes, and so much more. This toy may not grow with your child, but it will help them learn through several developmental stages as they grow older. Great toy and is very well made.

This is a pretty straightforward and simple toy, but my 2 year old likes to carry it around and hold the blocks. The lid does slide right off, so we took it away for now. My son recognizes the shapes from his other Melissa and Doug puzzle, but it might actually have TOO many shapes options. There's an octagon, pentagon and hexagon and they look very similar. The square and the rectangle are also too close in shape and they're also the same color. Less would probably be more in this case, but it's still a fun toy.

Great quality product. Had this for months now and still looks brand new. Only thing I don't like is the lid gets lost sometimes, haha. I wish the manufacturer could create some sort of "stop" on the lid to where it wouldn't come all the way off. Get it tho. Your kid will play with it for hours.
