The Soft Shape Sorter lets you bond with your baby with three different ways to play: put in and take out play, shape sorting, and color matching. This developmental toy features four shapes with different textures, colors, crinkles, and chimes to explore. Show baby how putting the shape in the right spot completes the animal’s face. Engaging textures and crinkling sounds make grabbing and exploring this toy even more fun and are perfect for helping develop dexterity and hand-eye coordination. The bright colors and high contrast patterns are designed to provide your baby with visual stimulation while they play. When playtime is done, the top opens to store the shapes neatly away.
