Green Toys Shape Sorter Review

Little J has had so much for fun this week with his new Green Toys Shape Sorter that we were sent to review. Sometimes it worth remembering that classic toys are called classic for a reason.

When it arrived it was in a simple box that was easily opened, the shape sorter just popped out so no need to cut packaging or tags. I have since found out that all packaging is earth friendly and recycled.

The shape sorter has two colours, a lovely green and blue.

Inside there are eight basic shapes included
two plastic blue stars
two plastic yellow circles
two plastic purple squares
two plastic orange triangles

The two halves of the sorter clip together and you twist to close. Once closed you can begin sorting shapes.

Little J really likes the shapes, especially the circle. He always has the circle in his hand.

I have showed little J what to do with the shapes and he will try and fit the them in the sorter.
When all the shapes are in the sorter little J likes to pick it up and rattle it. It is quite light in weight so he is able to pick it up with ease.

As always he likes to give it a quick taste. Green toys feature no external coatings or paint, also no traceable amounts of Phthalates, BPA or PVC.

Little J loves rolling the yellow circle along the floor

and chasing after it.

Then after he has collected them and put them in one half the sorter

He likes to spin it on the floor so they all fall out again.

Little J really likes his Green Toys Shape Sorter. Its suitable from 0-4 years and for now little J is using it as he pleases and is finding it very entertaining.

Over time this will provide little J with basic shape and colour recognition and hand-eye coordination.

The Green Toys Shape Sorter is quite chunky and it looks like this will last little J a long time. Its made from 100% recycled plastic and seems really durable.
