Ideal first sorter
on 23 August 2011
I hunted this toy out for my grandaughters first birthday after using it all the time for teaching pre-school children twenty years ago. Unlike most sorters you cannot put the wrong shape in the wrong hole and it doesn't matter much about the angle the shape is posted at. Some sorters you can try the right shape in the right hole but at the wrong angle and it won't go in, which is confusing, so it is ideal for learning to match shapes and colours by trial and error.The key adds another level of play too, little fiddle fingers learn to put it in and turn it to retrieve the shapes. I just wish it was easier to find by googling as until I finally remembered its' name I couldn't find it anywhere.
