He was anxious to play with it. He kept grabbing the toy and saying "I want it out" over and over.
He immediately took it apart and put it back together repeatedly.

What we thought: Right away he wanted to play with the sorter. He LOVES solving puzzles, sorting, stacking, naming colors and shapes. This was the perfect toy for him to do that with. I love that the toy is made from wood and dyed safely. One negative is something that Rj said, which is that all of the color transitions of the blocks make sense except the orange. It goes from orange to really red, not a darker orange. I don't mind that but maybe it could be confusing for an older child? Regardless, we love the toy! It's perfect for Brayden and I know Lincoln will enjoy it in the future. It's a perfect toy to help develop motor skills.
