Inspired by the Montessori philosophy, our Play Kits are concrete representations of abstract concepts, with a control of error such that the material itself is the “teacher”. They are also open-ended, allowing each material to be manipulated in many different ways. These simple materials isolate and focus on a single sense and hone in on only one particular concept at a time. Designed to be progressive, our Play Kits see our little ones from infancy through toddlerhood.
The Taby Play Kit includes:
A combination build-up of individual shape puzzles and pincer grasp knobs. Little ones will notice the edges of the shape while holding the puzzle at its knob. The introduction of a smaller sized circle as part of the puzzles prompts understanding of size differentiation. Recommended to introduce one puzzle at a time once little one has mastered each piece individually.
Meant to be used after little ones have mastered Palmar & Pincer Grasp Blocks, this puzzle institutes the concept of size differentiation. The varied widths of just three cylinders will keep the puzzle simple and self-correcting for little ones with only one variable (width).
Introduced after mastering the Palmar & Pincer Grasp Blocks, this puzzle brings out the concept of size differentiation. While little ones are busy sorting to insert the poles into the block, they would also be building up their palmar grasp muscles! The varied widths of just three poles will keep the puzzle simple and self-correcting for little ones with only one variable (width).
Keeping to the same colour, shape and size of the rings, the Rings on Vertical Dowel isolates the particular skill of manoeuvring the ring and stacking it through the dowel. In this manner, little ones will not be overwhelmed by other variances while improving their hand-eye coordination.
Smooth and rounded edge blocks for stacking and open-ended play. The Four Cubes Blocks allows little ones to practise holding, pushing and tossing during plays.
Designed with four distinct shapes - circle (sphere), triangle (triangular prism), square (cube), and rectangle (rectangular prism) - the Shapes Sorter encourages little ones to practice matching 2D holes to 3D shapes. They learn to differentiate shapes and familiarise with 'cause and effect' as they push the shapes through the respective openings and observe the 3D shapes fall through. Recommended to present the two easiest shapes first (circle and square) before advancing to all four shapes. Little ones can move on to practise opening and closing the magnetic gate to retrieve the 3D shapes.
