Earth Rainbow ArcRaduga Grez £19.13
Earth Rainbow arcs are colored in deep, sophisticated hues – the color of blueberries on your fingers, the color of a quiet hollow, the color of November ice, the first grass, butter, dawn and sour garden cherries.
The arcs are made of linden wood, so they are light, stable, and quite strong. The linden trees were carefully grown and gathered in Russia, and then dried in the air for two years. The arcs are coated with health-safe paint without the use of lacquer.

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.
