Introduce your child to math in a fun way!

This set of twelve whimsical wooden blocks is taking the home education market by storm.

Because of its precise inch segments, Inchimals can also be used to guess and measure common item around the house. How tall is the glass? It is as tall as a tiger, or six inches tall. How long is a carrot? It is as long as a rabbit, or four inches long. Or build a corral for those Lego horses and chat about perimeter.

About Cuisenaire Rods Introductory Set:  In the 1980s, when widespread homeschooling in the USA was still in its infancy, I read of a homeschooling mom in Ireland who used multi-colored, multi-length rods to teach her children a variety of mathematical concepts. Using rods in an assortment of ten bright colors to depict numerical values, her children could easily see a multitude of mathematical concepts as they manipulated the rods. Used in classrooms around the world, this essential learning tool is suitable for preschoolers and on through eighth grade. Set of plastic rods contains seventy-four rods (the smallest rod is a one cm cube, the largest is ten cm long), tray with lid, and an activity guide.
