DwellStudio definitely knows how to do "zoo" right. Their Zoo Collection bedding created for Target caused quite a stir. Now the same simple animal graphics are available in a unique shape sorter that doesn't focus on traditional "shapes" at all.

There are gads of shape sorters out there, many of them eco-friendly and high-quality, and the Zoo sorter is no different. Made from engineered and recovered wood, all the animals use non-toxic dyes.

But what we really like about DwellStudio's product is that it doesn't focus on the traditional shapes at all, instead substituting animals for squares and triangles. We think that makes this toy a little more flexible; use it for problem-solving and coordination associated with fitting shapes into their proper holes, or create your own imaginative scenes with the animals. Kids can create any kind of scenario they want, from the animals escaping from the zoo to the Ark boarding all its passengers.

It's a little more fun than circles and squares.

Available for $32 at DwellStudio.
