Nice looking, but not as pretty as pictures. Colors arent very attractive to my toddlers eye--unlike Grimms. I like the assortment and quality of shapes, but the stacking base could be improved by making the bottom thicker, therefore heavier. That way it wont slide away so easily as my toddler stacks the shapes on it. I purchases because I generally like this toymaker, but this one disappointed. I wouldnt purchase again.
