Ladybugs play a valuable role in nature. Hape's Ladybug Shape Sorter plays a valuable role in providing youngsters with a fun and friendly place to sort shapes and colors while improving coordination and motor skills. The Ladybug Shape Sorter has four pegs with different shapes that your youngster plugs into its “shell”. Each peg has two corresponding circular blocks of different shades of the same color. Your little problem solver needs to figure out which pieces go where! The ladybug's face is on a removable block as well. The entire set is built with the high-quality construction that is a hallmark of Hape Toys. For ages 12 months and up.
