Plus-Plus Big 150 with Cards
Created in Denmark (known for minimalist designs with purposeful function), Plus-Plus Big has an odd name, but a captivating design. Plus-Plus comes in two sizes: the larger Big, which is safe for younger children, ages 1 and up; and the smaller Mini, which is for builders aged 5 and older. Plus-Plus has gained a tremendous following over the last few years in Denmark and is so highly regarded in education that it is used in most Danish schools. Here’s why we’ve included it in the Preschool Curriculum Kit.
Pull out the pictures and your child will intuitively begin to create. Plus-Plus' identical, simple shapes with their slight rubbery texture glide smoothly together with very little pressure. And they stay together! Plus-Plus' pieces grip without slipping and come apart without effort. Plus-Plus encourages children to think creatively about color, design, and structure and is a painless way to develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Each set includes seven life-size Plus-Plus Big Picture Puzzles cards. One side of the card has the challenge, the other side provides the answer by showing individual piece outlines. You will also find quick tips for introducing Plus-Plus to your children and additional ideas for convergent and divergent models in our Preschool Handbook.
Plus-Plus Big includes 150 pieces in eight different colors. Since each box of Plus-Plus Big contains a unique assortment of all 8 colors, the exact quantity of each color varies. Plus-Plus pieces are made from plastic free of phthalates and PVC.
My son wasn’t a fan. They are kind of hard to push together and I have to help him a lot. I know it helps to keep them together, but not our favorite.
My daughter always puts Timberdoodle toys on her wishlists.
My mother in law gifted her these and she loves them! I can’t believe how well made they are. They hold together really well but they’re also very easy for her to take apart when she wants to. I highly recommend these!
We have so much fun playing with these as a whole family, even my husband gets involved. There are so many possibilities that the fun is endless and I love the cards that make learning the fundamentals of building (engineering) easy to understand. My daughter who is 2 is already learning how to make things stay standing and to make fun shapes with them. This is a must have for any household!!!
My 3 year old twins love this they ask almost every day "are we doing the day and night game and plus plus today?"
I don't know why, but he wasn't in to building with this or re-creating the patterns. He always cried and wined about it. As much as I tried to make it creative and fun, he just didn't want to do it.
