This shape sorter, also known as a Mailbox, develops and strengthens fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination as children work to place each shape in its corresponding space in the wooden bench. The shapes, formally known in Montessori as geometric solids, develop the visual and tactile senses.
Once the geometric solids are placed in the bench, push down on the bar to release them and start all over again. A great toy for a child interested in exploring cause and effect!

Fine motor and logical thinking skills as children determine which shape belongs in which slot
Visual perception skills are engaged as children use hand-eye coordination to sort each shape successfully
