This Jungle Shape Sorter definitely became a “buddy” as kids gravitated to the colorful lion’s face and wanted to start pushing the shapes through. Quickly, my little friends discovered that pressing the top button released all four sides of the cube as they dropped down to reveal the shapes. They were delighted to start another round of sorting. The lion’s mane encourages some sensory description and his nose rotates for a reinforcing clicking noise. Parents can up the language learning as they name the shapes: flower, hexagon, triangle, heart, cross, star, square and circle, as little ones select them and push them through. Describing your child’s actions with this Jungle Buddy helps him take in and learn language concepts like open/close, push/pull, or in/out. This little lion provides lots of smart fun!
