The scope and sequence of this program is phenomenal. Using just 18 blocks your children will experiment with construction, geometry, logical analysis, perspectives, design, and spatial logic. The spiral-bound book is systematic in its presentation, with multiple levels and escalating complexities. Spatial proficiencies are vital for everyone, but today's sedentary children often lack a natural way to develop this ability. This set provides an enjoyable and successful approach to making sure your child acquires these essential skills.
It Starts with Fine Motor Skills
Canadian Toy Testing Council awarded Equilibrio their 2006 Best Bet Award, and for good reason. Using 18 sturdy, precisely cut, solid plastic blocks, your children build the structures illustrated. Each successive structure is more complex to build and more difficult to balance, requiring the use of fine motor skills, creativity and perseverance.
Easy Enough for a 4-year-old, Challenging Enough for an Adult
As an educational bonus, while accomplishing these tasks, children will subconsciously be experimenting with basic concepts of geometry and balance. While the beginning pages may be easy enough for a 4-year-old, the more difficult pages will challenge any adult. This is the beginning set in the series.
Expandable with 2 Additional Books
Equilibrio Set includes 18 precision-cut blocks and a challenge book with 60 designs in increasing difficulty. Two add-on books are also available to build on what you're learning with the Equilibrio. Architecto focuses on translating 2D into 3D designs, while Cliko emphasizes perspective, depth, and geometric forms. Timberdoodle also offers a complete bundle including the blocks and all three books!
