Love these!

Bought these for my son's 5th birthday and they are great! They are very sturdy and my 5 year old has no problem locking and unlocking them.

Casey Ohman

This was sent as a gift to our child's daycare facility. They have since mentioned to us that this is one of the most played with toys in their program. The kids love the keys and locks and it is so easy for them to handle and use.

very well made 4 year old loves it

very well made, 4 year old loves it

Great gift for a teacher’s classroom!

My son’s preschool teacher had this on her classroom wishlist, and from what I’ve heard, it has been a great tool for the kids! It’s also pretty durable, as it is still intact after being in the hands of a bunch of 3 and 4 year olds ! Great gift for teachers..and even something different to have in waiting rooms (doctor’s and dentist’s offices, etc) to keep kids entertained for awhile!

Cultivate Coordination and Concentration

Exploration and manipulation of the locks and keys helps to develop your child’s fine motor skills, visual discrimination, coordination and concentration. Each key is matched one-to-one with a lock, so the activity is both self-teaching and self-correcting. The locks are perfectly sized for little hands, making them easy for children to use.

Getting Started

Getting Started

Start with just one lock and gradually add more, based on your child's readiness. Place the locks in a row in front of your child and leave the keys in the wooden tray. Model for your child by taking the first lock and selecting one of the keys from the tray. If the key opens the lock, leave it in place and return the opened lock to its original spot. If the key doesn't open the lock, return it to the tray and try a different key. Continue this process until all locks have been unlocked and your child is ready to try on his or her own.
