This set of 15 wooden figures makes a stimulating balancing game that will challenge whoever plays with them. Children and adults alike will enjoy playing with these wooden people in a variety of ways - stack them up to make human pyramids and towers, upright or upside down; make patterns; use as maths toys and counters; and as part of imaginative play in combination with other wooden blocks and toys.
Parents and educators interested in Montessori theory will love this versatile wooden toy that can be used for education and play in a variety of ways. Grasping, moving and positioning the 15 Mendelson figures will develop children's dexterity, hand to eye co-ordination as well as encouraging creative, imaginative and patient play - on their own or co-operatively with others. A second set is recommended for children who are eager to build larger structures.
This set was designed by Wojciech Bajor, head designer at Bajo, and ethically made using solid, sustainably sourced wood in Poland.
