The adage, 'Good things come in small packages' is amply demonstrated by this compact, compelling 50-piece construction set. Those pieces are colorful, 2-dimensional shapes (triangles, squares, pentagons) young builders can use to construct a wide variety of 3-dimensional geometric shapes, including those known as Platonic solids - Tetrahedron, Hexahedron (cube), Octahedron, Dodecahedron, and Icosahedron. And while those names may seem a little unwieldy, this building set is anything but. The way the pieces connect firmly together is intuitive and does not require tools or force. In the process, kids develop a keener spatial awareness and the ability to visualize and create symmetric patterns, skills that are integral to a wide variety of academic disciplines. In addition to the five Platonic solids, numerous other 3-dimensional objects can be assembled, making this a highly entertaining and versatile construction set that's perfectly suited for fun and learning at home or on the go.
