Fun Play Number Rods
The FunPlay Number Rods are definitely not your typical counting cubes. This whole set is so unique and offers children an excellent way to learn while having fun at the same time. Children will not feel like this is a “learning activity,” but it likely will be something they choose to play with simply because it’s fun. The Number Rods are made of an excellent quality plastic material that can be quickly disinfected. The vibrant colors add a nice pop and help children create visually stimulating designs. The kit comes with 25 double-sided cards that encourage counting, number relation, addition, and measurement. But what makes this set even better is that it also includes simple and complex creative designs. All of the cards are made of thick, glossy cardstock that is not easily bendable, and the graphics are just outstanding. The set comes with a plastic tray where children can build their designs, so no matter where they are, they will have a flat surface to work on. One design feature that stood out to parents was how the tray has one corner that curves out to create a pour spout which allows you to very easily pour all of the pieces into the box or into a bag when the child is done playing with it. As for value, parents were over the moon. Just a great price, especially when they considered the number of blocks and the built-in learning it offers. The recommended age of 4+ is spot on as there are some very small pieces, so it could be a choking hazard for younger kids. High marks and high praise make this a winner!
