Modularity is the Key


Educators agree that modular blocks can teach mathematical concepts like length, volume, fractions and geometry – even literacy.

All Unit Blocks and Hollow Blocks share the same modular dimensions: the length of each unit is exactly twice the width, which is exactly twice the thickness. And when you mix all four sets, you'll find that the Mini Units are half the size of the Unit, which are half the size of the Mini Hollows... et cetera. This modularity inspires children to build stable structures combining all the sets, while exploring important math concepts.

Dimensions

Block cart measures 61 cm W x 30 cm D x 38 cm H (24" W x 12" D x 15" H)
