Encourages basic color and shape identification, as well as the development of problem-solving abilities. The beaded shapes provide rattle-action auditory stimulation.
The color and shape sorter helps the developing mind discriminate, order and sequence. These are underlying skills for math, science, reading, writing, problem-solving and more.
When a child is a year old, they will handle and clutch the pieces practicing motor skills. Eventually, they will learn to place the correct piece in its corresponding hole which requires eye-hand coordination.
This toy is self-correcting. Parents simply need to model the action.
