      This is a great toy; it could be excellent.

      I'm surprised that in a classic shape-sorting toy:
      1. There is no circle.
      2. Both the rectangle and the square are dark green and very similar in dimension.
      3. The lid easily slides off during "sorting".
      4. Two sides of the cube have no shape slots, but the lid, which can be accidentally lost, has three shape slots.

      Great things about it:
      1. Top-of-the-line Melissa and Doug wooden construction - sturdy and (non-toxic) colorful.
      2. 3-D shapes are easy for small, chubby baby hands to hold.
      3. Sorting box easily holds ALL of the shapes at once - no need to shake them "down".
      4. 3-D shapes are interesting to feel and interesting to view from different angles.
      5. There is a great variety of shapes (with exception of the "missing" circle), offering a learning curve for children. In other words, they're not all easy to do the first time.
      6. The names and 2-D photos of each shape are printed on the back label. I even learned a new shape name! (Quatrefoil, the "clover" shape)

      The product information panel should be the bottom panel that slides in and out to retrieve the shaped blocks. This would provide another panel for additional shapes as well as remain secure when rotating the box. As one of the sorting panels is the sliding panel it slides out of the box when turning the box to insert more shapes. This was not well thought out and not up to Melissa and Doug design quality.

      Real nice toy blocks. My grandson and I put the shapes in the proper spots in the box, then he likes to build towers with them. The reason for buying them was he had been given a set of these but it was missing 3 shapes.

      Great... Until the paint comes off

      Comments about Melissa & Doug Shape Sorting Cube:

      Baby loved this toy, and so did I until baby had flecks of paint all over her mouth. It's also hard to believe the non-toxic claims when the toys are coming from China.

      Over challenging?

      Comments about Melissa & Doug Shape Sorting Cube:

      Our old shape cube has lost too many pieces over the years so we purchased this for our one year old granddaughter who loves to put things together. I love Melissa and Doug but feel this toy is a bit on the cheap side and more complicated than expected. There are a lot of shapes and some of them are similar. Hopefully she will grow into it.

      Flimsy and Splintered

      By 

      from Illinois

      Comments about Melissa & Doug Shape Sorting Cube:

      I was given this as a gift for my classroom and it is very poor quality. I only got it a couple months ago and the wood is already separating and splintering. The top slides out too easily and falls out when students turn the box to find the correct shape. Some of the shapes look to similar and students get easily frustrated with it. I love Melissa and Doug, but this product was a dud :(

      Disappointed

      Comments about Melissa & Doug Shape Sorting Cube:

      Poor quality. The wood is thin and splinters easily. The sliding door is too loose and nearly slides off when turning the cube. There is no circle/cylindrical shape. I've bought lots of Melissa & Doug toys through the years but this is not at all what I expected from them.

      Comments about Melissa & Doug Shape Sorting Cube:

      Although it is a good value for the price, it is made of thin wood. Several blocks appear to be the same and are easily confused with others. The stickers (not shown in this photo) are meant as packaging, and aren't removable. I was unaware of this and attempted to remove them, only to rip these stickers and leave behind piece of ripped sticker. It looks absolutely horrible and I am extremely disappointed.
