Wooden Cake Stand Shape Sorter Toy

Where I can I strive to offer toys to the children that are made from wood rather than plastic. Wood is a natural product and is more durable. Usually the attention to detail is more visible on the decoration of wooden toys too. I much prefer the painted details to stickers that don't take long to become damaged.

Today I want to invite you to a tea party. Where there are lots of delicious cakes. At your service my beautiful 4 year old with a great big smile.

It wouldn't be a tea party without a cake stand of course and I have the most adorable one to share with you today! This Wooden Cake Stand Shape Sorter Toy is a product from Lucy Locket.

Not only is it excellent for aiding imaginative play the attention to further learning impressed me! Each cake has a shaped bottom giving the opportunity to explore shape and match them up with the correct shape on the stand.

In addition to the shapes each cake has a number too! Giving children the chance to recognise and play with numbers. Each cake has a unique shape and all are eye catching. With twinkly glitter and brightly coloured they make a great addition to any tea party!

Within the Early Years as care givers and parents its our job to allow children the opportunity to lead their play. Give them play experiences linked to their interests and allow time to observe what we see. This product really did allow me the chance to see where strengths and weaknesses lay.

My daughter enjoyed the challenge of matching the cakes to the correct place in the stand without being able to look at the numbers on the cakes. I am still taken back that she managed to complete the task quicker than me! Something she remains rather proud of.

She's enjoyed ordering them both forwards and backwards. We had lots of fun chanting the numbers backwards and the Space Theme crept in as we pretended to be rockets launching up into space.

I have seen my daughter running her fingers over the cakes feeling the textures of the glitter, gems and the smoothness of the coloured paint.

Its made a really cute addition to her play kitchen area and continues to be played with lots!
