What our experts think
This latches board is great for little hands who love to open and close things! Working out how to open the different latches was fantastic for challenging our tester’s dexterity, hand-eye coordination and problem-solving skills. It kept our testers busy for a long while – each child was excited to see what was behind the doors and they were also able to practice sounding out numbers and animals.
We like how versatile this toy is, benefitting children in different ways depending on age – toddlers love to play with and feel the locks, whereas an older child could benefit by discovering how different locks work and identifying what’s behind the doors.
