Babies love the fun and repetition of put-and-take play. It’s fun for baby to put the blocks in the bucket one by one, and then exciting to dump the bucket so all the blocks come tumbling out—over and over and over again! And while they’re having fun, they’re exercising important developing skills, too, like eye hand coordination (and other motor skills as they grasp, put, take and dump!), and thinking and problem solving skills.

Colors, and counting, and shapes, Oh My!

Baby’s First Blocks is a fun way for you to extend play into an early-learning opportunity for baby, introducing baby to colors, counting and shapes as you play together. As baby puts blocks into the bucket, identify colors (“That block is red…”), shapes (“Look, that’s a triangle!”), and counting, as baby puts all 10 blocks into the bucket one by one. Pretty soon you’ll be able to ask baby to find a red block, or a triangle block—and even count!

Matchy-matchy!

Baby’s First Blocks “grows” with baby’s developing skills! When baby’s ready for a little more challenge, the shape sorter lid fits right on top of the bucket for sorting and matching play. Five shaped openings encourage baby to match shape blocks to the openings, and then fit them through the lid to drop into the bucket. And when baby’s done, of course it’s fun to dump the bucket and do it all again!

Less is more This shape sorter is great. I read the reviews before I bought it, and almost didn’t get it because one or two said how loose the top was. I thought back to when my girls were little, and I got them the shape sorter ball from Tupperware. It had way more shapes to sort and a handle on each end that was used to open it. You held both handles and pulled, and it came apart in the middle. I learned more from it that the girls did. One, that was too many different shapes for a little one, and two I had to open it cause they couldn’t. The point here is this is easy to open, my eight month old can do it easily because the lid doesn’t SNAP on. Second point, there are 5 shapes, and that’s enough to start with. One of the best things is there’s two of each shape. We’re showing her where the first one goes and since she has the second one, she’s learning to fit it in the same hole! Little ones need something simple that’s easy to operate by themselves. This is it.

Love it! I’ve always viewed this block puzzle toy as a standard baby toy to have. It is definitely one of my daughters favorites and one of her go-to toys when we get home. Currently, at 10 months old, her favorite thing to do with this is pull the lid off and then dump out the blocks then put them back in sans lid. She isn’t interested in putting them through the proper hole yet, just wants to dump the bucket and pick them up (hopefully she’ll clean up her room in the future as well as she cleans up these blocks after pouring them out!). I can’t wait til she gets more interested in the puzzle part to watch her figure that out!

They started out dumping everything and carrying it around like a purse My twins have been playing with this since about 10 months and they are 15 months now. They started out dumping everything and carrying it around like a purse. Then putting thing in and out of it and playing it like a drum. They finally now are trying to put the shapes through the removeable lid but they haven’t mastered it yet so expect they will want to play with it for several more months. That’s good longevity for a baby toy!
