A basic fundamental learning block is recognition and understanding of numbers and shapes. The Melissa & Doug Big Button Number Fun Kit is a great way to make a game out of teaching young children. It will also teach them how to count and teach them about number sequences, giving them a head start when they become old enough to go to school.
The kit consists of five wooden boards which are double sided and give kids 10 designs to identity and number card inserts for each design. The object of the game is to match up the shape cards with the cards that correspond to the number of shapes a child is seeing. This kit is perfect for boys and girls and will help them get excited about learning colors, numnbers and shapes. Few other toys are this educational for any child.
