- A Great Toy that Grows with Kids by Rachel @ Third Stop on the Right on 1/21/2015
*I received this toy for free to facilitate this review, however, all thoughts an opinions are my own*
I love Melissa and Doug products. They are always well made, educational, and sturdy. This Noah's Ark Shape Sorter is no different. This shape sorter is made of solid wood and the animals are the "shapes" that go in the sorter. The ark has a cutout of two of each of the animals and also has a gangplank that opens not only for storage but for play. When my first son was younger we bought him one of the traditional shape sorters with the shapes that go in the box. This set is so much more though. Not only does it help you share the story of Noah with your children, but it also encourages imaginative play.
With many sorters, once a child is older they may get bored with it and no longer play with it. This sorter grows with your child. After the child has moved beyond identifying which shapes go where, they can continue to use the ark for imaginative free play, and parents can use it as a Bible story illustration. This is a toy that I would highly recommend!
