DV010 Counting Pegs Box-sold out
COUNTING PEGS BOX
Children love to play with this toy for hours, having no idea that they are learning one of the most important basic concepts of math—the combining of symbol and quantity of numers. On each of the nine blue wooden lids of the peg box there are exactly the number of holes as the number written on the lid. As the child pushes the pegs through the hole, into the box, she makes the subtle association between the quantity of a number and the symbol for that number. When the knob on the side of the box is pulled the pegs disappear, sliding down a ramp and out of the box—much to the delight of the child. The box base is 9.5" square and the height is 5.75".
