More than a shape puzzle

Comments about Melissa & Doug Pattern Blocks and Boards Classic Toy:

My husband did not think our 4 year old would understand the objective in the beginning, but she grasped the idea very quickly. We also use it for pattern sequencing within our homeschool curriculum.
Like many Melissa and Doug learning toys, it has many more uses, you just have to create your own added uses.

    Purchased this for my niece who is 3 for her birthday. Reports are that she has spent many hours building out her mosaics. I love the classic wood products offered by Melissa & Doug.

      Comments about Melissa & Doug Pattern Blocks and Boards Classic Toy:

      I had been looking for tangram puzzles for my 3 year old when I came across this set. I was by no means disappointed with my purchase - they were an instant hit! My daughter is now 4 and she still plays with them weekly, as does my 2 year old nephew. They are very versatile - you can put them together the traditional way or use the pieces on their own to make your own designs. My older nieces (8 and 9) like to have 'races' to see who can put their choosen puzzle together faster. The price is also simply unbeatable - Highly Recommend! :)

      I love these pattern blocks but it would be a good idea to add a lid to keep the small pieces for getting lost. That would give it the extra star.

        We bought this toy for our daughter over 6 years ago(when she was 2) and it is still a favorite of hers. As homeschoolers, we like to find good educational toys that are still fun. This product has been great for this. She has used it to learn colors, shapes, and develop an understanding of basic geometry. While she still uses it in her spare time or art time, her little brother is now using it for his education and we are about to purchase the magnetic one for on the go.

          My four year old son LOVES this toy. He will sit for almost an hour, working on different designs. It is teaching him so much about patterns, spatial awareness, and geometry, but he just thinks it is fun! I recommend it highly!

          The only con is that the sturdy wooden box doesn't come with a lid. Melissa and Doug, what do you have against lids???

            Toys of this quality will be passed down to the next generation. It is one of the most durable educational toys I have found. As a speech pathologist, I would recommend talking to your child about the shapes, how they go together, what they have made, and how they might change the design to make something different. I can't wait to explore more Melissa & Doug products.

              This is great for my 3 year old and I to do together.
              It teaches shapes, colors and creativity.
              It is a lot of fun and even her 9 year old sister enjoys it.

                My daughter has the simpler pattern block set, but it had gotten too easy for her. At 2 1/2 years old I was afraid this set might be a little difficult for her. I was wrong. She loves playing with it. The set is very well made and a terrific value for its price.

                • PATTERN POWER Create a linear pattern using four blocks. Have kids replicate the pattern. Increase the difficulty by adding more blocks.

                • RAINBOW REVIEW Have kids sort the pattern blocks by color. Ask them to count the number of pieces of each color. Review the names of each geometric shape with kids (green = triangle; yellow = hexagon; red = trapezoid; orange = square; blue = large rhombus/diamond; white = small rhombus/diamond).

                • SHAPE SHIFT Have kids combine two or more blocks to make another shape. For example: two triangles make one rhombus. Stacking the blocks on top of each other may help kids better visualize the equivalency.

                • 7 WAYS Have kids find seven different ways to replicate the hexagon. 1) two trapezoids 2) six triangles 3) three rhombuses/diamonds 4) one trapezoid, one triangle, and a rhombus/diamond 5) one trapezoid and three triangles 6) four triangles and one rhombus/diamond 7) two rhombuses/diamonds and two triangles
