SumBlox Home Set
A set of 43 Solid Hard Beech Wood SumBlox with 4 Activity Cards. The 43-block set is designed for 1 or 2 kids below age 6, learning simple arithmetic skills.
Including 10 x single blocks, 1 x ten block, and 4 of each 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 blocks.
SumBlox building blocks help children learn a wide range of mathematical skills through play. With hands-on discovery, children explore new ideas for themselves. Simply build a tower to understand 3 x 3 = 9. Each block's size is reflective of its numerical value. Seeing the mathematical problems take physical shape helps the child significantly in understanding new ideas. A great accessory for Montessori or Waldorf style learning, educators are describing SumBlox as one of the greatest learning tools available and a necessary addition to any fully equipped classroom for children ages 2 and up.
Package Size: 15"x14"x3" - 9 lbs
SumBlox are crafted from Artisan quality solid beechwood. They are made to last a lifetime.
Students can learn a wealth of information through play and hands-on exploration.
