3D Arranging Creative Stones Box and Contents
3D Arranging Creative Stones, by Haba, is a gift for toddlers and preschool-aged children to develop design and spatial reasoning skills.

The kit includes sixteen different colored and shaped wood blocks that can be used to create designs on a wood building pad. The kit also includes twenty template cards that display photos of potential designs and structures that can be built with the given blocks. The object of the gift is very straightforward, and it is very easy to assemble and disassemble each design. Children can choose to build a structure from a template card or create their own design.

This is the perfect gift for curious, young children who enjoy building toys. Through 3D Arranging Creative Stones, children enhance their problem solving skills, spatial reasoning skills, motor skills, and creativity. When building designs, children better understand how three dimensional shapes can fit with one another. Children must also build their designs within the constraints of the square provided by the wood building pad. The template cards have different levels of difficulty, so children can constantly challenge themselves by what they can create! 3D Arranging Creative Stones is a great toy to introduce young children to the world of engineering and design.
