Shape Sorter Toys

Toddlers develop shape recognition and hand-eye coordination with shape sorter toys

Shape sorter toys help toddlers develop shape and color recognition and hand-eye coordination. Shape sorter toys have holes of different shapes and pieces that fit correctly into their respective holes. Toddlers have to categorize these pieces according to their shapes.

What is the educational value of these toys? Shape sorter toys help children recognize the difference between different shapes. They can also enhance their problem-solving skills in sorting out the shapes and looking for the appropriate hole. Toddlers also learn about colors and to name the shapes (oval, triangle, etc). Toddlers usually find these shape sorter toys very entertaining! We recommend the Melissa & Doug Shape Sorting Cube (ages 2 and up).
