Wooden Shape Sorting Drum (Melissa & Doug) that rolls too
There are shape sorters and then there is the wooden Shape Sorting Drum. When your baby has tummy time, roll the shape-filled drum in front of them to catch their attention. Once you baby is sitting, you can play ‘put it in’ and ‘take it out’ games with the shapes. This is a fabulous investment toy that will be useful for four years as your child learns how to post the correct shapes through the holes, stack shapes and match shape and colour.
