I love this toy. We've given it to our friends 1 year old, but I wish we got one for our 1 year old as well. It's your standard shape sorter, but with extras, particularly the jingles are great. So you can use it to make music, as building blocks and as a shape sorter, great purchase!
This is a nice set of wooden blocks/toys. We've received this as a birthday gift and our 12 month old enjoys playing with it. There are jingles in one of the blocks, a mirror in another. There's a big yellow ball which she loves to walk around with. Great toy. I was a little disillusioned, as with so many toys these days, by the size of the box and the content, but you get what's shown on the box (makes sense right?)
This toy ranks at the top of my list as a baby toy. We've first given it as a baby present to friends of ours, who raved about it: it would keep their daughter occupied for an hour when she was about 6 months old! Since then, we've often given it as baby presents and it always turned out a great success. Obviously we then had to get one for our own daughter and it's her fav toy. Bottom line: you can't go wrong with this!
This was a birthday gift for my 1 year old, she loves it! She's in the I'm-obsessed-by-buttons-and-zippers-phase, so it's right on the mark. She's too little to do any of the dressing, but takes much interest in the monkey and walks around with it and gives it cuddles. A 2.5 year old at the party loved it as well and started to try and tie the laces. Bottom line, love it!
