Just Hammer Away Shape Set
Using in our preschool and it's a great manipulative. I have another similiar set made in Germany and pieces are much thinner than these and break easily. If the cork board breaks, that is easily replaced at any Hardware store. Kids love to make designs with these pieces. Good eye hand coordination toy!

Kids love, has held up well
I bought this for my son when he was about 3. He is now 5 and we still have it. He loves to play on it- we take it out a couple times a month and he loves to build pictures out of the shapes which is a kindergarten state standard for us. The cork board didn't look that stable so i used duct tape and taped along the back two layers and then wrapped the edges with a 1/4 inch on top. It has held up really well and still looks new, not sure if that is due to the duct tape or just that it has held up. If you had a wild and crazy kid I definitely would supervise them..as it wouldn't hold up to wildness- I don't think. I really like this toy and decided to get one for my niece as well.
