The Best Shape Sorting Clock Toys

Young children are constantly learning. Between discovering the world around them as well as beginning to identify shapes, numbers and concepts that they see every day, children are like sponges thirsty to absorb all the information they can. Very young children are building fine motor skills and cognition with every object or person they interact with. These fun shape-sorting clock toys can help them learn colors, shapes and even how to tell time.

This incredibly tactile shape-sorting clock toy set is perfect for preschool-aged children.

The vibrantly colored minute and hour hands move on this shape-sorting clock toy, giving you the opportunity to quiz your children on telling time. This is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.

We like that this shape-sorting clock toy features 12 individual colors in addition to an analog clock that can be used to point to minutes and hours. This is another perfect toy for toddlers.

We like this shape-sorting clock toy because it also offers 12 puzzle pieces on the clock face that help to build fine-motor and problem-solving skills.
