What our experts think
The Sensory Shapes set from Le Toy Van is a wonderful toy that helps toddlers learn to recognise colours and shapes. The many different sensory features to explore, from mirrors to sounds, really help foster a child’s curiosity and keep them engaged in the toy. It was lovely seeing our little testers investigating the shapes and finding out what they all did, and this is great for stimulating their different senses.
Fitting the shapes in the right space is ideal for developing logical thinking, shape matching, and hand-eye coordination. Handling the shapes also develops the small muscles in a toddler’s hand, known as fine motor control. We love that the blocks can be stacked as well, giving more play possibilities and further encouraging fine motor and logical thinking skills. An adult can use the different shapes, colours and pictures to encourage speech and vocabulary building too.
