Ready for some add-ictive early learning? Jaques of London’s collection of wooden abacus toys is the perfect way to introduce the world of numbers, to calculus-curious minds. Crafted with visual stimulation and interactive tactility in mind, these marvels of mathematics serve as the ideal means to bring numerics to life, even for 21st century learners.
Of course, this may come as a surprise. The abacus was first introduced as an ancient calculating tool. Pre-dating written numerical languages, the abacus’ lineage remains one of great debate, with its exact origins remaining largely unknown to this day.
However, despite their great age, wooden abacus toys continue to prove a vital part of early learning to this day, with children around the world able to engage with the challenges it presents in many intuitive ways. Precision handling promotes sensory curiosity, whilst colour patterns encourage basic counting and organisation of groups. Better still, the tactile interaction available makes this the ideal Montessori toy for little learners of any age, whilst serving brilliantly as a sensory toy for children with autism.
Presented with the typical touch of Jaques luxury, our wooden abacus toys are sure to inspire, teach and produce endless fun for the most inquisitive of future mathematicians.
