product information

Latches Board unlocks learning and fun! Undo a lock, swing open the wooden door, and count on finding fun when the picture beneath is revealed. Each numbered door hides illustrated animals to count, matching numerals with quantities to teach number recognition and early math skills. Six unique latches and locks test fine motor skills, too, making Latches Board an ideal way to engage kids in different modes of learning through one exciting activity.

Quick facts:

  • Wooden activity board

  • 6 doorways, 6 unique locks

  • Introduces key early-learning concepts: colours, shapes, numbers, animals

  • Numbered doors hide illustrations to count, connecting numerals and quantities

Great for your child's development:
Preschoolers learn through discovery-driven play: counting objects, manipulating moving parts, calling on memory, and solving simple problems. Melissa & Doug's Latches Board rewards their curiosity with something to learn on every level. Children can identify numerals, shapes, and colours above and below each unique hinged doorway; when kids challenge fine motor skills to open each unique lock, latch, hook, or clasp, they are rewarded with even more colourful surprises to identify and count!

Customer verdicts:
"My daughter loves this! She quickly learned how to manipulate the latches. It's also great for learning colors, numbers, animals and animal sounds! Every preschool classroom should have one of these on their manipulatives shelf!

"I bought this toy for a friend's child and now I am buying it for my wonderful mentally challenged son. I know he will love this one!"

What you need to know:
Latches and content are appropriate for a wide range of preschool children. Latches vary slightly in difficulty to keep the motor-skills elements engaging for many skill levels.
All hinges, latches, and doors are securely attached to the board; no loose pieces.

The various locks are realistic and hard wearing. The puzzle appeals to children when they enjoy manipulating different fastenings. The puzzle develops dexterity.
