Everytime we go to the doctors surgery my youngest daughter who is 2 makes a bee line for their table which is like this toy, knowing how much she loved the table my Mam decided to buy her this from Ikea for her second birthday.
The toy is one of Ikeas own creations and so can only be bought from there however you can buy very similar in many different places, the toy in Ikea is £10 which is reasonable in my opinion.
The toy cames packaged in a flattish box which was quite a surprise which may just me being a bit dim but I just expected it to come ready built. The packaging is a simply open topped cardboard box with cellophane wrapped around it which was easy to tear open.
The toy was easy to build and it only took my husband about 5 minutes to put it together, there are three letal pieces which sit between two rectangles of wood and then the two rectangles of wood are screwed togther.
The toy comprises of a purple piece of thick metal which is like a curv m shape, there is a red thick metal wire which is a spiral all the way across the wooden base and then finally there is a green thick metal wire which is like an m shape again but less of a steep curve in the middle. Each of the metal pieces has wooden different coloured shapes on it which your child can move from one side to the other.
The blocks are a great range you get red, green, blue and yellow so your child can learn the basic colours from it if they don't already know them and the shapes are spheres, flattened spheres, cubes cones and cylinders so lots of different shapes to contend with.
My daughter doesn't play with this toy every day but this is a toy which she will return to time after time and she will sit for ages pushing the blocks from one side to the other fastinated by it all. She also likes to come over and show you what she is doing to get some praise for it and she thinks it's funny when an adultdoes it from one side to the other really fast.
the toy is durable and the blocks are chunky and easy for young hands to handle, the wires are lovely and smooth so there is no chance of any injury from them. The wooden base makes this toy a little bit heavy for carrying around which my daughter often does but she has never hurt herself with it. I think this toy is a very basic toy but it gives a lot of entertainment for a young child although I just can't really understand why, it is a decent price and a toy that is robust enough that it will be passed down through the years.
Summary: A great basic toy
