Heuristic Loose Parts Play is rooted in young children’s natural curiosity. As babies grow, they move beyond being content to simply feel and ponder objects, to wanting to find out what can be done with them. Toddlers have an urge to handle things: to gather, fill, dump, stack, knock down, select and manipulate in other ways. This set offers children a variety of open ended objects and receptacles with which they can play freely with, without adult intervention.
The beautiful smooth solid 84-piece beech wood loose parts set comes in the seven colours of the Rainbow, with a natural finish to still show the grain of the wood. Ideal for creating imaginative scenes, encouraging construction skills, counting and sorting, stacking and sequencing, pattern-making and learning about colour. The set matches our natural heuristic play range, but can also be included in any loose parts collection or treasure basket.
