LP and Little Man are just learning to tell the time so when Magic Fairy Wings sent us their Melissa and Doug Shape Sorting Clock to review I loved it immediately – and hoped the children would too.
The Shape Sorting Clock is a chunky wooden clock with hour and minute hands and numbered blocks that sit around the clock face, each numbered like a traditional clock. The blocks are all different shapes which add a fun puzzle element to the clock – and they’re all brightly coloured too. The whole teaching clock is so colourful and fun for any child.
Little Man loved moving the hands around on the clock face and he now knows any of the o’clock times – and is just starting to learn quarter to, quarter past etc. The teaching clock is really helping with Little Man’s learning and we’ve found it to be a great resource.
Little Man’s favourite part is the numbered blocks, helping him to recognise numbers and he loves to line them up before putting them back into the clock. They can also be used to build towers, learn different shapes and any other games you can play with a set of colourful blocks.
The clock is so well made and it’s clearly built to last. It’s the sort of toy that can be treasured and handed down once it’s outgrown, lasting for generations. LP and Little Man love it and I know it will have a place in the toy box for years – and I can’t wait until they can both tell the time with the help of the teaching clock too.
The Melissa and Doug Shape Sorting Clock has an RRP of £11.99
