5.0 out of 5 stars Well made Educational Toy 12 April 2010
By Nixxie
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
We wasn't sure about purchasing this toy because it seemed expensive (at the time of purchase in Feb 2010) we are VERY glad we did though! As another reviewer mentioned you can see where the money has been spent. Well made, all brass fixtures and hinges and robust too. The board is BIGGER than we thought it would be (45cm x 30cm). Each latch has a different colour background (to help teach colours) as well as a number of different animals to aid learning to count (there is a small insert with the board's instructions for ideas what games to play). Our son is 21 months and can open and close all the latches except one that he is still trying to master! This is not a toy that they are going to play with all day every day, but something you bring out to play and help them learn. We actually bought a separate padlock with keys to use with one of the latches which works brilliantly (our boy loves keys and locks which is why we bought the latches board originally). Great fun to use once-twice a week and help your child's hand and eye co-ordination as well as counting and colours. Comes highly recommended by my little lad!

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I ordered this for my two year old, as he has become bored by supposedly age-appropriate toys. It is really well made and durable, well designed and he really likes messing about with it. My only issue is that I thought it would take him a while to figure out and he had all the latches open and closed in twenty minutes. Don't get me wrong, he still plays with it and his dexterity has improved a lot in terms of how skilful he is at operating all the latches, but I would query whether a three year old would be kept occupied for a particularly long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars In praise of this latches board! 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase
My 21 month old son loves to manipulate things and is pretty handy, so we bought this as something different for him to play with. What an amazing piece if kit! He loves it! For a toy to hold a toddlers attention for upwards of half an hour at a time says something about its appeal. It is really solidly built wooden toy, with high quality brass fittings to work. There is a range of learning opportunities with this toy, including colours, animals and numbers, as well as the actual latches. Some are really quite stiff to work, but this has taught my son perseverance. He is a bit little for it, but can do most of the latches himself, but needs a wee hand with others. We love this toy.

Excellent quality,fascinating for kids of all ages: I bought this for my preschoolers ( I run my own childcare business), but the older kids have been equally obsessed! Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something a little bit different.
