Wooden Abacus

Now that the office is near enough straight I thought it was about time I got on with writing some more reviews and adding more products to ToyBoxLive.  We have just got this delightful wooden abacus in stock by Plan Toys and it offers lots of play as well as educational value.

The wooden abacus has long been a staple teaching product at nurseries and primary schools, often giving children their first introduction to mathematics.  The abacus has been around for centuries and this corful version will help to introduce children to visualise counting, addition and subtraction.

Each line on this Plan toys wooden abacus has ten colored beads on string that can be easily slid from side to side, it is also bright and will encourage early colour recognition.  With one hundred beads in total your child can really start to get to grips with numbers and mathematics.  Educating your children doesn’t have to be just whilst they are at school you can really help them by making it imaginative and fun using the wooden abacus.

Suitable from ages 3 years – 12 years this toy certainly retains its value and can also be a great way to engage children with additional learning needs who may require a more tactile learning experience.
