Why we love blocks
Like puzzle pieces, blocks fit together. Unlike puzzle pieces, they can do so in a variety of ways. Learning to predict what fits where is the work of many years. Which pieces will I need? Do I have enough? The expert can see simply by turning the blocks over in her mind.
Small world play
Is your castle missing a section of wall? Does your railway need a tunnel? Never fear! Here is your humble set of blocks to the rescue. Infinitely versatile, blocks provide the canvas upon which to paint your stories.
Red, blue, red, blue; big, small, big, small. So much of early mathematical thinking is about making patterns. Can you see how it's a small skip from here to odds and evens or the two-times table? A set of blocks like the one above can even illustrate a number's relative size and how it can be combined to make ten.
