John Crane High Tea Shape Sorter - Review

Ever since Isla was 6 months old and was given a tea set and plate of pretend cakes for Christmas, playing tea parties has become a regular part of her role play games. She loves pouring tea and handing out the cups to people and pretending to eat cakes, so when we were sent the John Crane High Tea Shape Sorter to review I knew it would go down really well and is also so pretty!

This gorgeous wooden set is a two tiered cake stand and comprises of 15 different shaped and brightly coloured cakes.The great thing about this shape sorter is not only do children learn to match shapes but each of the cakes also has a number on their base which corresponds to the numbered shapes on the stand. Isla is great with matching shapes but the fact that this also includes the extra feature of number recognition is brilliant!

Apart from the educational aspects of this toy it is just so stunning to look at, all the cakes are so beautiful and individual, decorated with strawberries and cherries, they're so girly and sugary! I can see that we will have lots of fun with this and also that it will have longevity in terms of playtime. My Other half also commented on how well made it is and it was very easy to put together.

Since Isla has had it we've had more tea parties than The Ritz! We love this set and I think it would make a perfect gift for any little girl! 

High Tea Shape Matching Set available from all good toy stores including Dillon’s ToyBox , RRP £23.95
