We designed this set to guide children as they begin their discovery of shapes, scale, perspective, and depth.
As children peer through the holes in these whimsical blocks, they are able to play with shadows and perceive how they change based upon the shape of the holes, the surface on which the shadows are cast, and the distance between the light source and the toy.
The toy can be used in a myriad of other ways— as puzzles, as objects to trace over and make designs with. Children see the world differently, in a more creative way and this toy helps children express all that they imagine.
We use beautifully sanded European beechwood with our toys to ensure they are safe for children. We do not use burnishes because we love the patina the toy acquires over time, but you could apply any natural oil or beeswax from time to time if a more standard finish is desired. Please note wood have different hues so sometimes the color may differ slightly from the one on the image.
This set is composed of nine 65 mm (2.55'') square side pieces and thickness 9 mm (0.35''). The whole set is conveniently packed in a cotton bag.
