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.

    My son loves it!
    Posted 7/22/2014 by Shannon Offerman

    My one year old is obsessed with opening doors, so we got this for him to hopefully keep him away from the ones that can pinch his fingers. It doesn't accomplish that completely, but he does love to play with it, and it keeps him occupied for a good amount of time! It's also helped with fine motor skills.
