Old City [Beige]Raduga Grez £33.15
While building your city, you can study the peculiarities of architecture and urban planning, and talk about what you need for a comfortable life in the city. You can add a river of blue fabric to the landscape of your city, plant the streets with greenery and flowers, and invent your own eco-friendly transport.
Beautiful, muted colors are soothing to the eye, and water-based paints allow you to discern the texture of natural wood - you'll see that every detail is as unique as a fingerprint.
How to play:
- Build a fairytale city, populate it with rainbow gnomes or other small toys
- Build two villages and lay a road or railroad between them
- Build the tallest tower you can
- Imagine that the parts of the constructor are cakes, and have a tea party
- Combine with Domes Instead of Cubes set or the Old City Rainbow
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.
