The item came and there were 4 shapes with the same color instead of the normal 2 shape per color as depicted. Also, the shape of the keys did not match the color of the doors. And the lock of the doors did not match the shape of the door either. Needless to say, I returned the item since the whole point of this toy was for the shapes and colors to match for each component – door, lock, key, shapes.
My daughter seemed to like the toy though – she fussed when we were repackaging it to return – so I decided to try again with a different vendor and see if I can get one that had matching colors/shapes. This time I bought from Diana Toy Store and it was exactly as depicted in the description. Everything was great. 🙂 It turns out that the toy is a bit too difficult for my daughter – she is only 1.5 yrs old – but she has fun with the keys and can unlock the doors if I tell her which key to use. Overall a good buy – and it seems like it would be very educational and fun once she gets a bit older.
Overall I would say this is a nice item. I bought this item mainly for the different keys. For some reason my two year old has become obsessed with locks and keys. I got sick of trying to find my car keys that she walked away with and eventually set down somewhere in the house. My only complaint is my two year old has a hard time opening the doors after she turns the keys. Also sometimes the doors won’t open because another piece is sitting funny inside the door. Otherwise I would recommend this to any child that likes shapes and keys.
