Wooden Shape Sorting Clock

One of my friends came over for a visit and brought my little girl a gift. It was a Melissa & Doug Wooden Shape Sorting Clock. The shape sorting clock indicates that the toy is for those 3 and over, and my little girl was only 18 months at the time. We opened it for her to play with anyway, and I was surprised at how much she loved it!

The clock contains different colored blocks that are numbered and each a different shape. In the centre is an hour and a minute hand to teach the child how to tell time. At first, it was diffucult for my 18 month to put the shapes in the correct spot, but about a month later, she was able to match all the blocks to the spaces in the clock. Now she just has to catch onto the numbers and colors!

I am happy that my friend introduced me to the Melissa & Doug line of toys as they are colorful, high quality and highly educational. The wooden shape sorting clock alone helps me to teach my child the different colors, shapes, numbers and how to tell time.
