KidKraft Noah's Ark Shape Sorter Review


KidKraft is one of the leading creators, manufacturer, and distributor of children's toys and furniture. Having been around since 1968, they take great pride in making superior quality wooden toys. Their goal is to inspire kids to use their imaginations with their creative wooden toys and play furnishings. They have everything from kitchen sets to Harley Davidson motorcycle rockers!  Here's a look at a few of the products from KidKraft:

We were sent the Noah's Ark Shape Sorter for review.

Most toddlers will start to develop the hand-eye coordination and problem solving skills they need to be able to sort around 15-18 months. Little Guy doesn't have any kind of shape sorter toy, so I thought this would be a great 1st birthday celebration present that he could enjoy for some time to come!  This solid wood shape sorter is really pretty and colorful!  It includes the Ark, Noah and his wife, and two of each of the following animals: lion, panda, turtle, dove, monkey, giraffe, and elephant.  The moment I pulled this toy out Little Guy was VERY interested.  He crawled right over and immediately took the top off the ark and started pulling out all of the animals. The animals are the absolute perfect size for little hands!


Obviously, this shape sorter doesn't use the traditional shapes for children to practice so it provides even more of a fun challenge for toddlers.  Little Guy is a little young to use this to try and sort the shapes to fit in the correct place, but he has enjoyed using it to practice taking out all of the shapes and putting them back in again.   Because it is solid wood the shapes make a good clinking noise when he puts them back into the ark.  He likes that a lot and it's not too loud for mom and dad compared to some of the other noisy toys out there.  This has actually kept him busy playing independently for 10-15 minutes at a time before, which has been great for me to get a little something done around the house while still keeping an eye on him.


Overall, we really love our KidKraft Noah's Ark Shape Sorter!  After experiencing the high quality of KidKraft toys I want to get so many other KidKraft toys for Little Guy too.  I think the Fire Station Set might be calling his name for a future birthday!

  11. I love the colors and that it is wooden, because wooden toys just last so much longer. I also like that there are more than 3 animals. I feel like when you Noah's ark toys they only give a few different animals.

  16. Oh my goodness! My son is in love with the story of Noah's Ark. He always asks for my husband to tell it to him. When I TRY to tell him the story, he will make sure to tell me if I do not get all the details right. He would adore the Ark play set. Also, I love how a lot of KidKraft's toys are wooden.
