I love the cylinder design so that it can spin on the ground making it easier for a toddler to find the right shape. Also great that it is color coordinated so the child can learn shapes and colors at the same time. It includes much more shapes than the typical circle/square so it is good for older toddlers too. Great quality!

Melissa & Doug Rainbow Stacker Wooden Ring Educational Toy

My 1 year old love this! loves it! it is one of her favorite toys. The only reason i did not give it 5 stars is because it is a little heavy and i worry about her dropping it often. She is only allowed to play with it when she is being supervised. I plan to buy this for my friend's daughter for her first birthday. Much better made than the plastic ones.

Talk about a classic childhood toy! all the colors of the rainbow are represented by these eight smooth, easy-grasp wooden pieces. Stack them on the solid-wood base, designed with rocking edges for safe and intriguing play.

Not the highest quality when it comes to. Wooden toys but it kept my 6 month old entertained. Baby is unable to stack them on the base so i stack them on the floor and baby knocks them over. Another thing to do is stack them on the base and have baby remove them.

Melissa-&-doug-rainbow-stacker-wooden-ring-educational-toy-(melissa-doug) set picture

- N. LauraAll wood, it sounds great when those wood rings slap together, wish the top screwed on so it stayed together for storage. The rings stack well together with or without the center stand. It is a big hit with my granddaughter.

I received this product earlier than expected, it came nicely packaged and is an all around good purchase. My 3 year old gets the most out of the toy, she likes to practice her colors and counting and making sure she puts them on in order. My 8 month old loves to just gnaw on the pieces and dump the rings off the pole. I am really satisfied and would recommend this toy to many others. I just love melissa & doug products. Great quality.

Melissa & Doug Caterpillar Xylophone Musical Toy With Wooden Mallets

Great product. The paint on the sticks rubbed off onto the metal keys when the sticks were run along them. Otherwise, it is well made and fun to play with.

Over time, this little caterpillar will help children develop an appreciation for sound and music! the nifty wooden mallets store neatly in the xylophone itself to look like the caterpillar's antennas.

Melissa & Doug Geometric Stacker - Wooden Educational Toy

First, let's address a safety issue. The pegs are rounded and are made of a pretty tough wood. They will not impale anyone. But, if you leave the base lying around while a youngster is running or jumping . . . You're gonna get boo boos. And your kid could easily bonk your pet on the head with the base, when it's empty. . That said, this toy is an excellent educational play thing. My 16 month little monster loves this thing. The sorting combinations and stacking possibilities keep little ones entertained for quite a while. The colors are vivid. The blocks are easy for tiny hands to manipulate. It is easy for a toddler to lift the pieces off of the pegs and resort or re-stack as he/she wishes. This one was just really thought out well. For young minds, this toy is essential. It gets them thinking and problem-solving and creating all at once! . . The blocks are durable wood. The paint does not chip off all over the place. The base is heavy and balanced enough to stay upright on its own, but not too heavy that a little one cannot carry it around. The plastic bag is durable and holds all the pieces zipped tight. It has a handle that little ones can use to carry it around. . Overall, one of the best buys for your baby/toddler. In fact, older kids play with this as well because of the color and shape combinations and three pegs of possibilities. :). . Highly recommended.

Match and sort these 25 colorful wooden pieces, and skill-building is just part of the fun. Rings, octagons, and rectangles can be slotted onto the three rods, stacked on top of each other, or lined up to compare shapes, sizes, and colors. This first-concepts set is a manipulatives all-star!

Melissa & Doug Geometric Stacker - Wooden Educational Toy (Melissa Doug) FAQ.

My 2 year old son is obsessed with stacking things & i found this as a gift for his birthday & just had to have it. He loves it & it holds his attention for at least half an hour. He loves stacking them on the pegs & also lining them up on the floor in order from smallest to largest. The only negative is that we have only had this toy for 2 weeks & one of the wooden pegs has already come out. Fortunately it just pushes right back in, but still. We really enjoy melissa & doug toys. -Notice from J. Hayward, Rutland

We love melissa and doug products and this one is great. The only issue is the paint does come off on the inside of the holes due to the friction of them being moved on and off but my son loves this. He is obsessed with the old school plastic ones so i thought he'd enjoy this. I was correct. He looked amazed when i gave it to him. This is what you want when you give a toy to a child. Its colorful and bright. The square ones are great because they are cut like a puzzle and they fit together. Its a nice added touch. This is not a toy you want to get wet because the paint is water based. The age was changed on this. I saw it for 6 months and over but now its 2 years and older. This was a smart change because kids like to put things in their mouths and that's not a good idea with water based paint. My son loves to throw things and this has done quite well with the abuse. I saw other posts about the sticks maybe being dangerous and i could see that. However, with monitoring kids will be just fine. My son is 2 but isn't sturdy on his feet so i put it up in the window seat in my room so he cant fall on it. I also did some research on whether it has lead paint in it because of some of the questions and reviews. While lead may be present it is no where near levels that would be dangerous. Lead can be found in everywhere (air, soil, water) but its only dangerous at high levels. This is from the cdc website. "only a certified laboratory can accurately test a toy for lead. Although do-it-yourself kits are available, they do not show how much lead is present and their reliability at detecting low levels of lead has not been determined. " so the reviewer that tested for lead at home probably doesn't have an accurate test. I have somewhere between 1-2 dozen melissa and doug toys and they have all been of great quality. Again, maybe some work on the paint can be done but this is my sons favorite toy and its such a minor issue. Even with other paint it probably would wear down inside the holes eventually.

Melissa-&-doug-geometric-stacker---wooden-educational-toy-(melissa-doug) set picture

- N. FabianThere's two product lines that are a win for toddlers - melissa & doug and fisher price little people. M&d are always great quality and this piece is no different. The wood is solid, smooth, and well painted. The square pieces are two parts that interlock, making them quite challenging. The round and octagonal pieces are more traditional. My 2 year old doesn't quite get the order and shapes perfectly yet, but enjoys building some very abstract towers from them. As she grows i suspect she'll grow to learn to do them, with the squares probably taking some time to get right, so it has growth potential. Nice quality, safe product.

My son loves this toy. He is two years old and absolutely loves it. He stacks them in all different ways and then dumps them back over and starts again. The options are endless and if he gets board stacking on the pegs he sometimes builds with the blocks too. The only thing i want to warn other parents about on this toy is the red ball. My son really likes to throw it because it resembles a ball. It's made of wood so it's potentially very destructive. We have removed that part of the toy for now.

Melissa & Doug Deluxe Pounding Bench Wooden Toy With Mallet

I bought this for my daughter. She is 16 months old and doesn't quite understand how to use the hammer. When we play with this i usually end up using the hammer and she just pushes the pegs down with her hand. I leave this item out all the time and she never just plays with it on her own so i wouldn't say this is a favorite of hers by any stretch. However, it is a wood toy that works exactly as it should and there aren't a million pieces to pick up and put away as with most of her toys. My only suggestion would be to have some kind of clip or holder on it so the hammer stays with it when not in use. I just place it on top but it would be nice if it somehow stored better. I would buy this item again but since it's not a favorite toy for my daughter i don't know if i would buy it for a gift for another child. Maybe she will become more interested in it when she's a little older?

The pegs on the bench go up and down, playing peekaboo on this solid wood pounding activity. Non-removable pegs take turns showing their smiles while your toddler has fun naming the colors and enjoys practicing fine motor skills. A sturdy mallet is included.

Melissa & doug deluxe pounding bench i bought this for my 2 year old grandson. As with most boys he loves to "pound" on anything and with anything. I love melissa & doug products as they are sturdy/brightly colored and have always been a big hit with the kids. Grandson loves it, has pounded so hard at times i thought for sure it would break! only problem i've had is keeping him from using the hammer part of it on everything else! -Notice from X.

This pounding bench has been a welcome addition to our sons sensory toys. As with all m&d toys, this is a great, quality toy. The wood is smooth with no worries of splintering. The painted pegs are vibrantly painted with cute little smily faces. Perfect choice for those little ones who like this type of pounding toy, likes to make noise or loves the cause and effect of the push pop reaction.

Melissa-&-doug-deluxe-pounding-bench-wooden-toy-mallet-(melissa-doug) set picture

- S. FinchWhat i love about this toy is that the pegs aren't removable, so they can't get lost. The only piece your child could possibly lose would be the mallet. When you hammer a peg on one side down (for example, the yellow one), the peg on the opposite side of the bench moves up (in this case, the purple one). It's very cute and fun for my three year-old. She's delayed, so i would recommend it for a typically developing two year-old.

I am torn in reviewing this toy. Here's why: the toy is definitely well-made, will not come apart, will not break unless subjected to massive violence. It definitely builds motor skills, hand-eye-coordination, and even thinking skills-as deciding which colors should be up or down or evenly matched in height requires some intricate choice and physical application. So, the toy is a great toy! . . But . . . . You are basically giving your child a miniature of thor's hammer. Not a hollow plastic hammer, mind you. No, no. This is a toddler weapon the great god of thunder would approve of. Two solid wooden pieces held together very well. The head of the hammer is sculpted to allow attacks from many interesting angles. Great for the toy. Not so great if your little one might decide to go "a-viking" during a playgroup, family get-together, or school function. . Like the mighty mjolner, this hammer throws well, flies fast and far, and can kill the mightiest of trolls. Or televisions. Or pc's. Or grandma. . So . . . The only reason i take a star off is because of the deadly weapon that comes with this awesome toy. Maybe it should have been fastened by a cable to the toy, melissa & doug? it's not cool that parents have to do this thinking for you. But we love grandma. Having our toddler turned thor send her to the hospital is not our idea of fun. . If your child is meek and kind and dependably non-violent, go for it. Great toy! if your little one may just be a conqueror of lands reincarnated into this tiny body, please beware the hammer!

Melissa & Doug Stack Sort Board - Wooden Educational Toy With 15 Solid Wood Pieces

My son has outgrown these and i have passed them on, but i will say that he really enjoyed this toy. At first he just played with the shapes and then he began concentrating on taking them off and putting them on. Eventually, he got to a point where he understood that he was to match them and put them in the right spot. He was always very proud of himself when he got them all on in the right spots. As he got too old for this toy, he would use the shapes, once again, for other things - cook them in his imaginary kitchen, add them to his built creations, etc. Definitely a good investment and a great learning toy.

The 15 wooden pieces in this first-manipulatives set offer a variety of colors, shapes and opportunities for leaning. A printed key on the wooden base offers guidance when it's wanted, but the possibilities for play are endless! use these colorful blocks to encourage matching, counting, stacking, dexterity, fine motor skills, color recognition and more.

Great solid wood shape sorter. Pegs are just long enough to fit the pieces onto them and are thick and rounded for safety. I only wish the two sided shape was a heart, since it truly has two sides, unlike a rectangle, which has four. 5 red pentagons - 5 sides, 4 blue squares - 4 sides, 3 yellow triangles - 3 sides, 2 purple rectangles - 4 sides. I don't like it; should be two hearts. Other than that, there's really nothing wrong with this toy. It's the best wooden shape sorter for the price on online store. -Notice from C.

Blocks are extreamly sturdy, after being pummeled with them from surprise ninja attacks from my toddler i have many bruises- but i feel my reflexes have become faster within just a few days. . My two year old enjoys sorting these blocks out, they have helped her learn colors. She brings a block to me and i say the color, then she repeats it before throwing said block at me. . My only problem is that the stand is exreamly sturdy too. My daughter had taken to holding the base by the red colored prongand spinning it above her head or towards my head. We ended up having to confinscate it to prevent head injury to my husband and i. . Overall, our daughter adores this toy. It is her number 1. For mommy and daddy. Not so much. . I suggest buying this toy for a toddler that is older than two, or buying helmets and bubble wrap along with this toy. Possibly even sanding the corners of the base to be more rounded.

- T. SharonI bought this toy for a class of severe and profound learning disabled students. It's become a popular toy because the colors are bright, the pieces are easy to pick up, and one can do three things here: teach students to count to five, teach students colors, and teach them some shapes. The pieces are easy for young people to grab and pick up and place on the pole. . I haven't had trouble with students trying to eat the wood pieces. The pain seems to be sprayed on and is hard to bite off. The bar is 2. 25" wide, 13" long and 3/4 inch high, so easy for young hands to pick up.

I really love melissa & doug toys, they are so heavy duty that they will last for years, and you just don't see that in toys anymore. The quality of this stacker/sorter is no exception. The pieces are all very brightly colored, so there is no mistake or confusion for the child to sort. The pieces also feel as if they are coated, which will offer protection for the paint, as chipping can be a problem for wooden toys. . My daughter is special needs and if anyone out there has a child with special needs, you know that any type of toy or product geared toward our children is super expensive. Melissa & doug toys are appealing to my daughter, sturdy enough to stand up to tossing and/or chewing, and cost effective enough to not break my wallet. Just the fact that i know that these toys are sturdy enough to pass down to my grandchildren is worth the price. . I really like this toy and my daughter does too (which is really the only opinion that matters) and recommend it to anyone with small children!

Melissa & Doug Rainbow Caterpillar Gear Toy With 6 Interchangeable Gears

We bought this for christmas for my then 7 month old, and it has been her favorite toy hands-down. She loves to put the gears and wood in her mouth and the gears are the perfect size; plenty large enough for no choking concerns. The quality of the wood is what impressed me the most as i've found the wood quality of other melissa & doug items to be lacking. This is smooth, well-constructed wood, and the gear motion is excellent quality. As a former early childhood teacher, gears are great for developing problem-solving skills. Best toy we have for our 8 month old and she'll be able to enjoy it and learn from it for many months to come.

Turn the gears slowly and watch each interlocking segment move the next, or see how fast your child can make the caterpillar "crawl" on the wooden base. This rainbow-colored gear toy is hands-on fun at any speed! with their bulky, notched shape, the colorful gears are easy for children to fit onto the color-coordinated pegs . . . Then rotate, remove and rearrange. Toddlers will be fascinated by the colors and movement of this charming toy.

Theses brightly colored pieces fit perfectly in little hands. My 13-month old daughter very quickly figured out how to remove and replace the pieces and she giggled joyfully when we made all of them spin by turning the "face" piece. She liked it so much that i bought a second as a gift for my neighbor's 1-year old. The only down side to this toy is the the pieces only loosely fit on the base, which makes them very easy to bump or fall off, which is why i rated it 4 instead of 5 stars.

- U. AnonymousMy toddler got this as a christmas present and likes the bright colors, gears, and matching. From his point of view:. I like to throw them, so it helps that they aren't solid pieces (that would hurt mama). The plastic is good quality that doesn't show teething and wears nicely as a hat as well. The long skinny piece is also fun to use to try and reach things on forbidden counters. The plastic gears fit on my fingers as hats and make colorful pretend cookies (but they don't fit in my cookie monster's mouth, which is disappointing).

This is a toy we bought for our handsome little man to work with him on his fine motor skills (he has delays) and to start working on matching and sorting by colors (because the gear pegs are the same color as their gear, so we originally had him just getting the gears on anywhere, them moved him up to getting the gears on the right color pegs). . I think the toy is well made, and from the standpoint of what we were using it for, i think it worked fine. And because our son loves to make things form a line of some sort, he found it to be a more motivating fine motor toy. . My only reason for taking a star would be that because of the simplicity of the gear line up, i am personally not sure it would hold the interest of your average typical functioning toddlers for very long. But as a mom of a boy with some more specialized challenges who is very motivated by bright colors and things he can line up and put away, i was very happy with it and what he was able to get out of it.

Purchased for my 17 month old and its a tad too difficult for her right now but great activity to work together on. She gets so proud when she gets a shape to go in. My 3 year old loves it too and does it with ease but enjoys it still.

A number of questions have been asked here.


(0) Question: Would this be considered heavy for 9 month old baby?

(1) Question: How many *different* shapes does it have?

(2) Question: How small are these pieces?

Best melissa & doug match roll shape sorter - classic wooden toy (9041) in review

This is a fantastic old school toy for kids. I bought it for my 8 month old son and it will last him a while. Right now he just plays with the blocks, but as he gets older i can teach him colors, shapes, and how to match them to the right cutout. I feel kids are exposed to too much technology at too young of an age so i'm trying to stick to the toys i had when i was a kid. This is my personal preference and i don't want to judge anyone else, but i feel these old school toys are the best for kids. Somethings never get old.

We got this for my 2 year old for christmas. She's been having a lot of fun with it! . . One thing i noticed is the red piece that holds the blocks in is *really* hard to get in and out, even my husband and i struggle and none of our kids (10, 8, 5) can do it at all. Most kids could not play with this independently, they'll need assistance getting the 'plug' in and out.

P. Guest, St. Helens

This is the only wooden shape sorter that i could find that also incorporated color matching the shapes. The pieces are very well made and on piece fits into another shape's slot. My 16 m/o son loves it and i was amazed to see how quickly he learned how to match up and find the right color/shape.

I. Mary, Maryland says

Got this for my 1 year old for his birthday he loves banging on the blocks and we have fun together finding the correct spots to put them in. It rolls on the floor which he loves. On the back of it it has all these suggestions on games to play with your toddler with it. Great product!

W. Eleanor, Florida

Talk about high quality. This sorter foots the bill. I also enjoyed looking at the ca safety regulations as i understand that this product is made in china. My 9 month old twin boys do not quite understand the sorting just yet, but they do enjoy the rolling of the sorter roller. I love the color coordination of the shapes too.

O. Lynette, Yukon Territory says

Cant get enough play with that toy, it helps our baby to focus (he can sit with it 20-30 mins if we play together), gives us a piece of mind, cause he is in the running/climbing stage now and its just great that there are toys out there that help to focus.

O. Imelda, Coventry

Our nine-month-old isn't interested in putting the shapes in the right spots yet, but she loves rolling it back in forth with the shapes inside - what a fun noise! we love that this is a toy she can grow with and she loves all of the bright colors.

U. Heidi, Nevada says

Bought this as a gift. the kids love love it.

E. Cathy, Trafford

I bought this for my 1 year old son and he loves it. This toy has really helped his fine motor skills. I have seen an improvement on his ability to grasp and handle objects because of the practice with this toy. He is also learning colors and shapes. He is now 18 months and still plays with it. We play with it together which is good for "joint attention" which educators say is an important activity for young children.

Q. Elanor, Warwickshire says

Very nicely done melissa and doug! makes a great gift, very colorful and not too big or small as a gift. Nice that you can keep the kid from just opening it to put the shapes in, a bit difficult to open - making the cap another shape hole throws them off, but making it a screw cap would keep it even more effectively closed.

R. Nancy, Wokingham

A classic learning toy, simple, educational, and fun.

H. Alice, Illinois says

I'm so glad we got this! my daughter absolutely loves it. It's beautiful and feels very sturdy. My daughter loves putting the blocks away (she's a little young to match shapes yet) in the hole in the top and loves peeking in at all the shapes. She also loves to roll it around with the shapes in it and hear them all clicking together. I would buy this again and probably will for friend's kid's birthdays.

D. Hannah, Bracknell Forest

Love the color and shape matching, love that it rolls and makes sounds. 12 month old loves it! she can't do it herself yet, but she's interested in it.
