This review is from: Lamaze Soft Sorter (Baby Product)
It's a soft toy sorter... it's a soft, fabric cube with different shapes cut into teh sides. The different shapes correspond to the separate 'toys' that come with the box. The different toys are all different shapes- square, triangle, circle and egg-shaped. They fit through the holes when pushed.
The separate shapes are made from fabric of different textures- soft, cord, silk which gives babies the chance to explore different textures of material whilst playing.
The shapes can be pushed through the holes in the side of teh cube or put straight into the cube by lifting the lid at the top. The patterns on the cube are very bright and stimulating for the baby to play with.
I particularly like this toy because it is soft. So many shape sorters are wooden or plastic bu this is soft so makes it chewable which, i'm sure you will know if you have a baby, is a bonus! My baby is always chewing on things so these shapes are really good for that! Also with it being soft she doesn't start screaming when she drops one onto her foot like she has with other toys!
I think it's a really nice toy to buy and it has definitely attracted my little girl's attention although she can't directly play with it properly yet as she is too young. The recommended age is from 9 months as this is when developmentally babies are able to push shapes in and out of holes and understand differences with shapes but there is no reason why your baby can't familiarise itself with this toy earlier as it is soft and very light and teh shapes are really good sizes, perfect for holding in the first instead of mummy's hair!
