The age range is 18 months plus, so my only concern was that it might be a little young for Marky who is going to be 3 in Feburary. But as soon as I got them out of the box he made a bee line for them. They are bright coloured, and actually looking at them they provide more educational play to him at his age than a child of 18 months who would probably just stack them.
Each box is numbered, not only with the actual digit number, but again with the word spelt out, and objects counting out the number. Marky is getting good at counting, but it’s great to have the word for him to recognise and the objects for him to count for each one.
The cubes are solid and sturdy, and can even be sat on and stood on, Marky also has found they are incredibly useful for filling up with toys and even hiding his dummies inside!
There is loads of play factor to be had with the Tidlo Rainbow Cubes, the are one of my faourite toys in the house, and Marky is always finding new things to do with them too!
