The Language of Math
Teach your preschooler the language of math with Inchimals by Fat Brain Toys! This set of twelve whimsical wooden rods is taking the home education market by storm. From the one-inch ladybug cube to the twelve-inch giraffe rod, Inchimals are all you'll need to introduce your young child to math.

Introduce Math Vocabulary
Begin by having your preschooler sequence the Inchimals blocks from the shortest to the longest and introduce math vocabulary related to measurement. Because of its precise inch segments, Inchimals can also be used to guess and measure common items around the house. How tall is the glass? It is as tall as a tiger, or six inches tall. How long is a carrot? It is as long as a rabbit, or four inches long. Or build a corral for those Lego® horses and chat about perimeter.

Familiarize with Addition and Subtraction
Next, use the Inchimals to build a tower or form a train while you familiarize your child with addition and subtraction. He will quickly grasp that one frog (length) plus one monkey (length) equals one elephant (length). Or one ostrich (length) minus one mouse (length) equals one bear (length). See how easy it is?

Spiral-bound, Wipe-off Puzzle Book
To make it even easier, Inchimals comes with 100 write-on/wipe-off math puzzles in a spiral-bound book that explore counting, number value and recognition, addition, subtraction, equivalent sums, and multiple numbers. The colorful activities in the Inchimals book are designed to increase in difficulty, so your child will be challenged but not overwhelmed as he progresses through the book.

Best Hands-on Program We've Seen for Young Children
Thoughtfully designed with matching numerals and dot equivalents on opposite ends of each block, Inchimals is the best hands-on program we have seen for teaching math to young children. For children from three to eight years of age.

    Best Math tool ever January 13, 2016
    Reviewer: Linda  
    My son loves these. They are his favorite math item. The problems get progressively harder as you work through the little spiral workbook. The pen that is comes with us pretty much useless so definitely have some dry erase markers on hand.

    Son loves these September 25, 2015
    Reviewer: Deja  
    My son uses these after all his other lessons. He thinks they are a reward for finishing regular school. Little does he know he's learning while playing. Sneaky timberdoodle. :)My only negative is that the corners seemed to be getting worn already so I'm hoping they hold up an don't start peeling or cracking on the pictures.

    A Great Hands-On Learning Tool! September 15, 2015
    Reviewer: Beth W.  
    We received Inchimals as part of our kindergarten kit, and from the first time I opened them we were all hooked! My five-year-old loves completing the puzzles in the dry-erase workbook, often going back and reviewing the same ones over and over again. My two-year-old, who of course wants to be just like her big sister, will take them and play with them herself as part of her school time, trying to organize them by size or have the different animals on the blocks interact with one another. Not only have we used these in the "intended" manner; the other day my five-year-old used them as rulers to measure different objects around the house. I can see that these are going to get daily use at our house!

    Great fun and learning. September 1, 2015
    Reviewer: Jessica G.  
    These are really great. My kids love to play with them after our learning time. I like that it comes with the wipe off book of equations so that we can reuse it for both kids. Great tool in teaching math.
