Information about Latches Board

We bought this toy for our 3-year-old son. The learning curve at that age is pretty short. I'm not sure whether this toy will be played with often. One of the latches didn't latch properly so, in light of its simplicity, we decided to return rather than exchange it. It would probably be ideal for a 2-year-old.

M&D have great ideas, so-so execution

Was keen to have this. My kid is fascinated with latches, locks, knobs, etc. Great variation on latches, but a couple are hard to open...the kind you rip a fingernail on and once unlatched there's not easy way to open some of the doors. At 18 mo, my kid can't utilize it fully. Had the same trouble with a D&M puzzle. The cut of the wood made it difficult to put the shapes in if not in one particular way. A square should go in any way you hold it. There should not be one right side up.
The upside is you're right. Right side up, fully utilized, and in great shape is how we prefer things too. We contacted our customer to assist, and this feedback was provided to Melissa & Doug. Visit our Returns & Exchanges Center for prompt care.

Okay, he wasn't real interested in it, might have been because he also had the poke-a-dot [book] which he loved.

Review for Latches Board
Posted 3/7/2013 by Cathy LoDuca
Rating: 3

I loved the way this looked with all the latches, however, I gave only 3 stars because my granddaughters are constantly getting hurt by the latches. Either by being pinched as they close one or hurt by the force needed to close others. Overall, I love the idea and so do they.
First aid for any product you are not completely thrilled with is just around the corner at our Returns & Exchanges Center. We've got the cure for three star situations.

Wonderful for problem solving and fine motor skills

As a mother, I love the fact that she focuses and works on it on her own diligently while talking to me. However, she was "spoiled" with the board that has magnets behind the doors, so she expected to take something out of each door. That's my only complaint. Otherwise, I think this is a very good example of REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE PRACTICE. Pretending is wonderful, but this gives her real life problem solving experience.
