Melissa&Doug 美丽莎和豆豆 图形分类钟
Introduces telling-time concepts and communication skills.
Telling time has its own vocabulary, with terms such as “half past” and “quarter of,” and concepts of “before,” “after,” “early,” and “late.” This colorful clock is a playful way to share this language with children. As children sort the pieces, push the hands, and explore visual cues on the clock face, caregivers can help them understand and talk through it all. The clock can also be a unique way to talk through the events of the day, talking about what happened in the morning, at midday, and in the evening, as the clock hands move around the clock to show breakfast time, lunchtime, and bedtime.
Great skill-builder for color recognition, shape recognition, counting, and fine motor skills.
Each solid-wood, removable shape piece has a distinct shape, offering a hands-on tool for learning about the different types of edges and corners that make up a geometric form. Thanks to a shape-guide on the back of the clock, caregivers can help children learn each shape name too--from triangle to octagon, and even a quatrefoil. Each also features a bright color--and with two shapes in each shade, opens up possibilities for matching and sorting activities. The numbered shapes can be placed in sequential order, used to illustrate simple math concepts, stacked high as a motor challenge, and of course placed in the matching wells to complete the clock face. This classic set offers countless ways to play and learn!

Again, the skills offered with this product are a strong value for the investment. It's a great addition to the playroom, classroom, or homeschool room.
My only criticism of the Melissa and Doug brand, is that once you get accustomed to the thicker, higher quality of brands like Janod, Hape, Haba, or even the Alex line of wooden toys, you can clearly tell the craftsmanship is not on the same level. This product is much thinner, and not sanded to the same softness as toys by the other brands.
Dollar for dollar, with all the skills this particular toy offers I still highly recommend it as a 5-star purchase; but overall, brand for brand, I don't feel that Melissa and Doug offers toys that will stand the test of time as well as some of the other manufacturers on the market.
