On the surface, Inchimals are simple blocks of varying height with cute animal and number graphics. But these are great tools that can help your bubbie deepen their understanding of math.
Initially, your bubbie will go around measuring everything in the house, which gives them perspective on size, measurements and introduces new vocabulary to quantify these measurements.
It also comes with a dry erase book with problems they can work on with you and then by themselves to slowly build their confidence with simple arithmetic so they feel more comfortable tackling harder problems later.
We love the quality of the blocks. They are sturdier and heavier than you would expect.
