More than just a fun toy, the GUIDECRAFT Unit Blocks Set B - 56 Piece Set allows children to explore and get their creative juices flowing. Providing opportunities for open-ended play, building blocks give children the chance to solve problems using spatial thinking and early engineering concepts. Fine motor skills develop through continued play.
Made from smooth sanded rubberwood pieces mean no splinters. The size of the blocks makes them sturdy enough to sustain small bumps so that play can continue uninterrupted. Young children progress from lining blocks up to stacking and ultimately to thematic play.
Quality construction ensures blocks are proportional. Children learn the concept that 1/2 + 1/2 = 1 by placing two squares on one rectangle. The fraction lesson repeats itself with other shapes since two small triangles equal one square and two large triangles equal one rectangle.
Children ages 3 to adult develop invaluable skills as they learn to build towers, bridges, and enclosures, working their way to dramatic play.
