Timberdoodle's review
One of our primary purposes in attending a regional toy trade show was to find an abacus. While several were featured at the show, most were unimpressive at best. Some looked wobbly, others were too small for little hands to manipulate, still another suffered from shoddy workmanship and included an odd arrangement of beads.

The Rainbow Bead Abacus is the only one that lived up to our standards. Made of sturdy wood, this abacus is as appealing to look at as it is to play with. It is a great size too: small enough to store, but large enough for small hands to manipulate. With 10 rows of 10 beads, math concepts become much more intuitive for your youngster.

Several of you have asked; now we can finally offer an abacus which lives up to our standards!

A good Sturdy Abacus November 1, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
The Rainbow Bead Abacus is a good, sturdy well-made abacus.  While it is not the cheapest option, you will find this one to be worth the extra cost.  It will last much longer than it's counterparts. The colors are bright and cheerful, and the balls are nice and smooth.  That said, we didn't really use it too much for math, mostly just for play. I have regretted getting rid of it during one of our moves.

Perfect Abacus!!! October 19, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Buckeye, AZ United States  
I like to use an abacus when explaining math concepts to my children.  Having a visual representation really seems to help them grasp concepts.  It tickles me to see them go get it on their own and come up with new things.  My 4-year-old daughter will often play she is teaching her 2-year-old brother math on it.  I really love the sturdy construction!  I highly recommend it!
