I think this is a really cute way for toddlers to learn early math skills, colors, and grasping skills. I also liked how everything stored within itself when you were done using the parts. I am all about convenience and keeping things all together for the next time you want to use them. My daughter is 5 so she wasn't really all that into the idea of learning with it. Having been in pre-school and now kindergarten for awhile now she already knows her numbers, colors, and basic math skills. She was more interested in using the parts with her pretend kitchen set. But mean old mom told her since she already knew her math skills we were going to pass it onto someone that would enjoy using it for its intended purpose. She seemed okay with that, I mean she did get to test it out first.
