Guidecraft Peekaboo Lock Boxes Review

I am a proud member of the Guidecraft Educator’s Blog Team and get very excited every month to introduce you to the highest quality, educational children’s toys. What makes Guidecraft so special in my opinion is that the toys are so unique, creative and brilliantly encourage children to use their imaginations and do what children should be doing………..PLAYING with no batteries required!

Guidecraft Peekaboo Lock Boxes Review

The Peekaboo Lock Boxes by Guidecraft are a great play offering both function and fun as children are sure to love unlocking each of the six color coordinated boxes. These wooden lock boxes are a great twist on shape sorting toys because this fun and educational toy includes a different style lock for children to open and retrieve the correct colored shape. Each acrylic transparent window is colored to match the color coordinating shaped block and door so kids can peek inside adding to the fun and assist them with problem solving.

Designed for ages 2 and up, the wood shapes are chunky and easy for little fingers to grasp and manipulate developing the child’s fine motor skills and coordination. I originally thought that my children were a bit too old to enjoy this toy but I was proven wrong as my five year old son and six year old daughter immediately gravitated towards this toy during free play time at school. They spent over 30 minutes locking and unlocking the lock boxes and declared it to be, “lots of fun”.

Each lock box is nicely sized and I love that the six blocks can be stored in the accompanying wooden tray. As is the gold standard at Guidecraft®, the Peekaboo Lock Boxes (SRP $90 per set) are durable, well-crafted and sure to provide years of learning fun!
