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!

I have to agree... my 3 year old loves it.. but the corkboard broke the first day. Also I had to make the holes on the shapes a little bigger.. some of them were't cut all the way through.

I teach in a nursery school, pre-K. My kids have always loved this toy. It's amazing what they think of to make with it. My only problem with this item is the cork board. While I've had it in my class for about 5 years, the back side of the board is all taped in order to hold it together.

They used this type of item in a Montessori school and I liked it. I wanted it for my Day Care and the kids love it! It is taken out everyday even by my own children. The only problem was, it was missing several pieces when I received it. I would definitely recommend it to others!

I love this product. I'm a Pediatric Occupational Therapist and this has been perfect for my kids. It has duplicate pieces so you can make a design and have the child imitate the same design. Great for the price!

I was very happy with this project. I only wish the corkboard was mounted on another stronger board to keep it from ripping apart or in a frame. Otherwise, I love this product and so do my kids!!

Good set, but missing pieces
This is an overall good set, but there are pieces missing. Also, part of the cork board was broken off when I recieved it. It would be a great addition to my other contrustion boxes but it is not useable.
