Made in Germany, this Zookeeper Sorting Box from HABA is tons of fun and prompts free play! Just like in a real zoo, within every enclosure there is a slide. If pushed down, only the half wooden shapes fit through the opening. If pushed upward, the opening is large enough for the whole wood shape. This is fun because as children play, they can pretend to feed the animals while becoming more familiar with color and shapes. Contents: 8 wooden shapes and one sorting box.
Available to purchase at HABA and Amazon.
This is such a great toy! All three of my boys enjoy playing with it and I have to admit I love to play with it too. It’s a great stress reliever, I have started to use it in place of my stress ball. My boys love making shapes with it over and over. It’s also a huge plus that it doesn’t dry out. Overnight it does get a little hard but after kneading it a few times it’s back to normal.
