Create opportunities for your child to explore two-dimensional (2D) shapes through open-ended play: building, balancing, rotating, sorting, stacking, tracing, stamping into playdough, making new shapes and more. Suitable for ages 3 and beyond (see below), these beautiful, handmade wooden 2D shapes have been thoughtfully designed to enhance children's understanding of early geometry. Plus, they are environmentally sustainable and a great alternative to throw-away plastic toys.

The set has been designed by Elle Collective and lovingly manufactured by the small business, MJ Designs, in Tasmania. Both Jarrah & Spotted Gum timbers used in making this product are locally and sustainably sourced.  

DESIGN FEATURES

  • Large size, perfect for little hands to grab & engage
  • Each shape is a two-piece puzzle, which allows children to learn what two pieces combine to make a single shape, or create their own shapes
  • Mix n match your pieces to create new 2D shapes such as parallelograms, kites, isosceles triangles, rhombuses & trapeziums
  • Lines of symmetry are discovered; as children stack & match shapes, they learn that regular 2D shapes have at least one line of symmetry
  • Made from hardwood timbers, making them durable & perfect robust play. Other wooden toys made from soft woods (such as pine) are more likely to dent & split). 
  • A mix of timbers is used to create interest & assist young children in piecing together each shape
  • Non-rounded edges & corners, so children can physically feel these obvious features
  • Sanded to perfection, to ensure safe play
  • Finished with a non-toxic oil to enhance the lifetime of the shapes

WHAT TO CHILDREN LEARN ABOUT SHAPES AND WHEN?

From the age of 3, most children will be able to identify a range of two-dimensional shapes. At around the age of 5, children will begin to sort, describe and name 2D shapes. Between ages 6 and 9, children will draw, compare and identify specific features of 2D shapes (e.g., number of corners, edges, sides and lines of symmetry). Our wooden shapes are designed to facilitate learning through all these stages.

**DISCLAIMERS**
-Suitable for ages 3+. Not to be used as a teething toy.

-Being a wooden product, colour and grain of the timber used may vary.

Just gorgeous

What a beautiful collection of learning resources we have received. The quality is excellent and we love the use of different wood to provide a beautiful finish. The 2d shapes are perfect for little hands and I know they will grow with my daughter as she gets older and the alphadots well they are the best quality and design that we own and we have a few. Thankyou, @mumma.and.moo xx
