My Toddlers love this toy! Its a huge hit in our classroom. We have had it for about two years and its very durable. It gets thrown, kicked, stepped on and eaten and it still looks like it did when it came out of the box! Ontop of that, its eco friendly :-) Its also amazing to see the babies struggle to fit in the shapes and then a few months down the road, after their fine motor skills develop some more, they become pros! Not long after, they start identifying the shapes. All around great toy for development.
