Rubbabu 3D Shape Sorter is a great addition to a child's toy room. Like other Rubbabu products, it is made out of soft rubbery foam, making it ideal for infants through preschoolers. Unlike traditional wooden puzzles or sorters, one doesn't have to worry about a piece "accidently" getting tossed across the room and hitting a little one. It holds appeal for various age levels too. Our testers, including those just learning their shapes, enjoyed putting the star and rectangles back into their spaces on the sorter. Older testers found the toy challenging and engaging as well. The square on the bottom of the arrow is made up of two triangles and the circle made of two half moons, making play not as straightforward as it might appear. Young testers learned that new shapes can be made from putting other shapes together, a concept that many children won't learn until elementary school.
