Fat Brain Toys, Inchimals Animal Blocks Review!!!

Recently, I had the chance to review a product from Fat Brain Toys.  I saw the Inchimals and decided on that.  I have told you before, my husband and I are big math people, so Inchimals really appealed to both of us.   This is just the greatest set that I have ever seen to teach pre-schoolers and beyond about measuring, addition, subtraction, counting, greater than or less than and other math concepts. This set includes 12 wooden blocks that range from 1 inch to 12 inches.  Each block has a character, number, representative dots, and 1 inch markings.  This set makes learning fun and easy to understand for little ones.  A spiral bound dry erase book lets your child practice written math problems and puzzles.  This set is perfect for home or classroom.  Children will even be able to learn pre-algebra with this set and the wipe off book.  I think this set is a wonderful teaching aid and will help children master these math concepts with lots of visual, manipulative and tactile examples.

  2. What a fun way to introduce kids to math! You can assign a few pages each night to help with their math skills. I like the wipe off book, so it can be shared with different kids. Thanks for the review
