Count on years of learning
Count on this wooden abacus for years of play and learning! The solid hardwood base and frame holds 10 thick coated wires with 10 colourful wooden beads on each – 100 beads in all. Slide the beads for a visual and hands-on way to learn numbers and mathematical concepts. There are many ways to play as skills develop. Several activity suggestions are included to keep kids coming back to this toy over and over again.
Numbers, colors, and patterns
Ideal for the classroom or the playroom, this classic toy gives kids lots of ways to explore numbers, colors, and patterns! Sometimes called a counting frame, the abacus was used as a “calculator” hundreds of years before modern number systems were developed. Still today, it’s a simple and fun way for kids to learn counting and math skills, and to explore patterns and colors. The smooth, colorful wooden beads encourage little hands to grasp, spin, and slide them, promoting fine motor skill development.
This wooden “calculator” helps teach math skills, patterning, and colour recognition. Counting and moving the beads on this wooden frame develops a visual and tactile relationship with numbers and early math concepts–but to a child sliding, sorting and counting on this colourful abacus, it just feels like fun!
