    I found the shape factory to be extremely simple but then again I'm 53 years old, My 1 year old grandson has not played with it yet because it is a Christmas gift but I'm 100% sure hes gonna love it !

    Love all the bright colors. I like that the child can change the shapes by pushing down.

    Perfect gift for 2-4 years old!

    I purchased this as a Christmas present for my 2 1/2 year old niece. She is prone to swallowing things but loves to play with small toys. This toy makes her think about where to put each shape and she played with it for an hour after opening it on Christmas morning! The pieces are just the right size that she can't try to eat them, but also have texture to them so they are interesting to look at and feel and hold. I 100% recommend this toy. I was worried it would be too young for her, but it is spot on for 2-4 years old. I will buy this again for my children when they are old enough!

    Well crafted and well designed. I believe that this is a bit challenging for a (just turned) two year old.

    The shape factory is a great gift and is lots of fun for little ones to play with. My grandson loves his new toy. He is learning his shapes and colors with his new toy. And likes to carry it around with him. An awesome toy for little ones both boys and girls.

    I do a lot of work with math and families. Most shapes toys and books designed for young children have mathematically uninteresting content. Triangle, square, circle; that's about it. The Shape Factory is such a welcome relief in this respect! The variety of shapes is delightful. The ways it is designed to play tap into children's natural curiosity and ideas about how shapes are put together. AND! As a bonus, there is a ton of really deep math right under the surface. Why is it that 10 shapes are the right number to fit through all of the combinations of 4 half-shapes? What if there were a fifth half-shape? How many shapes would you need? How many times do you have to spin the top in order to get all of the shapes through their assigned holes? Is there some other way to arrange the holes that would result in more or fewer necessary spins? Are the holes on top and bottom arranged in the same way? How do you know? How many ways are there to arrange them? SO MUCH awesome math that can

    Fun toy with the durability to last. The combinations of top and bottom allow for multiple times a shape can be inserted. Allows child to try different orientations and be successful more than once.

    A little too difficult

    The fact that she (2 years old) can "change" how it works keeps her interested. Even her 7 year old autistic sister enjoys playing with it.
