This unique and useful building set offers a wide range of color combinations and shapes. An essential addition for any home or classroom, children will find many way to use these building elements for open-ended play, building structures and learning new concepts. Stacking and combining new shapes is a fun and engaging way for children to gain an understanding of geometric forms. The shapes are excellent 3-D math manipulatives, even for older children, to explore geometry concepts including circles, squares, rectangles, cubes, cylinders, triangles, measurement and much more.
Ideal for Kindergarteners, this set is brilliant on its own, but is sized to work in conjunction with any of the other large 4x4 blocks (with a 4 cm thickness) by Grimm's, including the Large Building Sets (Basic, Standard, 1001 Nights or Romanesque, Stepped Pyramid, etc), Geo Blocks, Elements of Nature stackers and more. Manufactured according to stringent European toy safety standard EN71 and certified non toxic.
