Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Grandma Not Just the Time
We bought the Shape Sorting Clock for our grandson because we were impressed with the old-fashioned wooden toy that teaches little ones to tell time and to learn about shapes while doing so. Very impressive. A small problem when we opened the packaging as the hour indicator was stuck. After contacting Melissa & Doug, a lovely representative said no problem and they would completely replace the item. It was shipped to our home and we now have a fully functional toy for our grandson. The Customer Service and desire to do right by their customers makes them a company well worth supporting. Kudos to them and their representative! Thanks, Melissa & Doug for striving to be a cut above all the other manufacturers and instilling your workers with not just pride but permission to immediately and cheerfully address an issue and resolve it. Love your products!

As one would expect, pieces came up missing little by little. I contacted customer service and asked if they provided replacement pieces. They emailed me a reply stating that the clocks were HAND MADE and that the pieces were not interchangeable. Really, then why was I able to find one at a thrift store that perfectly fit my clock base. It is evident to any one with a brain that these pieces are made with a common design. I felt as though they thought I was a 3 year old. I would have gladly recommended this product had I been treated with respect. If it isn't practical to sell the pieces individually then just tell me that. I would have gladly purchased another one. But when you lie to me and treat me like an idiot, well then you lose my business. I hope all of my 4000+ facebook contacts take the opportunity to read this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by R's Mom Multiple learning toy
Okay, I love this toy for it's many learning opportunities: time, number order, shapes! Although, I don't understand why they didn't think about the number of sides on shape matching with the number on the clock. There is a triangle for three, a square for four, an octagon for eight, BUT they could have used a hexagon for six and a pentagon for five. I know that they could not have done this with all of the shapes, but why couldn't they just switch those two!

My son is 13 months old and loves this clock. He is learning his shapes, and takes them everywhere! It will continue to be a great learning tool as he grows and works on learning colors, numbers, and eventually to tell time.

I absolutely adore this clock, my mother bought this for my daughters. My 3yr old is now teaching my 20month old how to tell time with this clock and it really is an educational toy for them to learn.

This product is great for helping my 3 yr old grandson grasp time. When we are trying to explain what time something will happen we use this clock to show him what the hands of the wall clock will look like. It seems to help him wait a little more patiently.
