Review: Melissa and Doug Latches Board

3+ years

This colourful fun latches board is a great toy. Although it states it is for any child three years and up, my toddler of 15 months absolutely loves it. Undoing a lock or latch and swinging open the numbered door is rewarded when a colourful picture beneath the door is revealed. This wooden play board builds fine motor skills while the child learns colors, numbers and animals.

 

It also gives you the opportunity for constructive play with your child… ask questions like ” Which is the yellow door? What animals are behind it?”

 

And letting my little one work out the locks and discover what is under each door on her own I found that this toy is fantastic for independent play. It is definitely a valuable addition to any toy collection.
