With the Grimm’s maths friends, children can discover the abstract world of numbers in a playful way. If acorns or flowers are collected from nature and put together in different ways, then new arithmetic problems arise effortlessly. In this way, arithmetic can be experienced with different senses when the hands can grasp what the eyes can see. Every maths friend is decorated with a maths symbol: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The fifth maths friend is decorated with the equal sign and looks forward to answers made understandable through play.
Each one of the little hand-painted wooden figures has a different look and individual wood grain. These happy little wooden figures, made from different types of wood from trees indigenous to central Europe, are gender neutral. With no specific facial expression, they can be either sad or happy.
5 Math Friends (+ – : x =) in wooden frame, 6 pieces
Wood: Three different types of wood from sustainable forestry, depending on availability (maple wood, beech wood, cherry wood or alder wood), non-toxic water based color stain/frame non-toxic plant based oil finish.
Dimensions: frame length 10 cm, figure height 6.5cm / diameter 3cm
CARE OF WOOD: Use a damp cloth. Do NOT submerge in water. Do NOT use hot water or disinfectant.
REPAIRS: Grimm’s stands for quality and long life. When making their toys, Grimm carefully selects wood without defects. At each step, the quality of the wood is checked. Wood lives and responds to air changes. Wood is a natural product and not indestructible. Children should be advised and prompted to use caution with their special toys. However, if something breaks, repair the damage with wood glue.
