- This toy is definitely a winner. Our 21 month old son loves it and will play with it often. He especially loves the door with the 6 goldfish. You can do a lot of mini games with this toy - like have your child count the animals for you, tell you the colors of the houses, etc.
- We got this toy for our son when he turned one recently. Several weeks later, he still plays with it (or "works" on it!) every day, unlike just about any other present he got. We leave it propped up where he can crawl over and play with it on his own. He has gradually been figuring out some of the ways to open some of the doors, but there is still a lot to figure out. If your child loves to play with mechanical devices and take things apart as much as ours does, then she/he will love this latches board.
- My two year old loves this! My kiddo is dexterous like you wouldn't believe, and has a passion for opening and closing doors as well as removing covers and lids (electrical socket safety plugs, the backs of remotes, change purses, bottle tops, baby wipes) and opening clasps (wallet, watches, bracelets). If your child is the type who's always looking for new and exciting ways to raise your blood pressure with feats of exquisite motor control, this latch board is a great way to redirect that energy and curiosity. I remember reading some horrified parent exclaim that perhaps teaching young kids to open latches and locks is a dangerous idea, but realistically speaking - the latches featured here probably aren't used in a safety capacity anyway. (Unless you hide your dynamite behind a miniature chain locked door. And you might want to rethink that.) The thing is also virtually indestructible. I can say this with confidence because it was "tested" by the brats next door, and those boys could destroy a padded cell. The colors and pictures are bright and appealing, too; it's remarkably well made. Keep up the fine work, eSpecial Needs.
