This unique, heirloom-quality toy has eight triangular wooden blocks that fit neatly into a chunky octagon-shaped wooden storage tray. Representing the colors of the rainbow, the blocks can be sequenced or mixed in the frame, or stacked like building blocks into three-dimensional towers and other structures. It's an excellent creative puzzle for toddlers, older children, and adults (makes a fun desk toy!) Play will bring opportunities to develop skills like ordering, counting, hand-eye coordination, spatial awareness and more. It is the smallest version of the Octagon Form Block Puzzles made by Grimm's. Each triangle block measures 1.6" x 1.6" x 1.4".
