Turtle Shape Sorter

I've been organizing all of my interview notes for the series on Albinism in the workplace, but until then here's a new therapy toy to keep you busy.

I found another shape sorter that we just love! It’s called the "My Little Turtle Sorter" and we were blessed with it as a gift at Liam’s 2nd birthday party. The turtle has a bright green shell with bright orange shape pieces, so the contrast makes it much easier for Liam to see and find the correct spots for each piece.  When you open the turtles mouth the pieces can easily be shaken out to begin again. 
It is easier to find in stores than the original house shape sorter I posted about HERE, but both are great for toddlers. Give it a try if your working on learning shapes!
