A Message To Parents of Young Children



Maybe it’s the fact that the latches are “real” metal, working latches… maybe it’s the clever little animals and numbers inside each house… or maybe it’s the kid-preferred graphics…

Whatever the reason, we know for a fact - this latches board by Melissa & Doug gets played with over and over again.

An excellent toy for early learning classrooms. Lots of fun for children with developmental delays and disabilities.

This inviting latches board gives toddlers and children with developmental & fine motor challenges a workout - but they love every single minute!

Inquisitive minds are busy at work - fingers coordinate to grasp and pull, twist and turn, open and shut, open and shut, open and shut. Something about metal latches intrigues kids. Latches Boards entertain kids for long spans of time, time and time again.

A solid choice for fun learning experiences. Melissa & Doug’s Latches Board builds fine motor skills, concentration & logical thinking abilities. Children identify color names, recognize numbers, count & name animals.

An ideal toy to keep close by on long road trips or airplane flights.

    Product review of Latches Board
    Posted 28 days ago

    Great toy for a 16 month old! My LO loves the latches and opening up the doors. For his short attention span, he will play with it for almost 30 min on his own. I like it as he will grow into it when he learns his numbers and colors, hopefully soon!

    Product review of Latches Board
    Posted 6/9/2014 by Michelle

    Offers a variety of dexterity exercises. It also provides a multitude of skills learned of concentration, open-close, lock, counting and colors. Great toy! Only complaint, the design some locks overlap with some doors and for a child it can become frustrating not understanding the "layers" concept to close this first and open that or move this.

    excellent!
    Posted 5/31/2014 by DWAIN WHITEHEAD

    My son loves to play with puzzles and locks and this latch puzzle is wonderful for him because it lets him play with the locks without possibly hurting himself on doors where the locks normally are.

    Puzzle fun
    Posted 5/14/2014 by Pat

    Bought this for my one-year-old granddaughter but when it came, I thought the 3-year-old would like it too. He was immediately an expert at opening all the locks and was happy to show off his skills. She likes to open and close the doors so we keep the locks open for her. Better to give it earlier than later. The quality is excellent. It is sturdy, well-designed, has vibrant colors and the pieces stay in one place. ;-)

    Although the age recommended is for a bit older child, our grandson is starting to use this and likes to move the various locks and latches.
