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.
