(Fat Brain Toys
Let the building begin. This 106 piece set of 4.5" multicolored planks look a bit like a plastic version Citiblocks. However, 55 of the planks come with notches so that they clip together more soundly than the straight planks. These are a good choice for developing spatial relationships as well as patience and problem solving skills. The come with their own storage bag for safe. Neat keeping. Kids will find their own way of using these, but they can also use them for counters, sorting by color or notched attributes and mixed with other construction sets from the company, such as their Dado Cubes and Squares. Marked 3 & up. We think early school years kids will find still more uses for them.
The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.
Use these pastel colored planks for matching. Sort by color or use them for making patterns - lime green, lemon yellow, melon orange, lime green lemon yellow - what comes next? There are enough pieces here for counting or sorting into ten-stacks and then counting by tens - to 100.
