Fun Educational Toys : Shape Sorting Cupcakes

This is a sponsored post.  As with all the products I blog about, I use them personally and opinions are my own, I was not influenced in any way by the compensation I received.

Carly Jo is fixing to turn 2. In my mind this the fun stage. Their mind wants to soak up and information that you are willing to provide them. I am always looking out for new educational toys. One of my favorite site to find them on is Learning Resources. Recently I had a chance to review Shape Sorting Cupcakes by Learning Resources.

About Shape Sorting Cupcakes: 

A delicious way to encourage shape and color identification and build fine motor skills! These 8 two-part cupcakes pull apart to reveal a circle, square, triangle, rectangle, oval, hexagon, star and heart. Match the shapes to put them back together. Then match the shape to the pan bottom.

My Thoughts: 

Carly Jo loves her cupcake shape sorter. The cupcakes are made of a rubber like texture. I think in many ways that makes it a little easier for to mess with. This toy is perfect for teaching her not only shapes but colors. Several times I will ask her where is the blue square and she will find it. Then we will locate the square in the pan to put the cupcake up. This way I know she not only knows her colors but also knows her shapes. Granted the only ones that she has figured is the square and circle, but hey she’s only 2 and not even for another month. Overall I am pretty pleased with it. It’s educational, sturdy, and fun for her!
