NIFTY stands for Natural Investigations for Toddler Years. Much like unit blocks, there is an integrity in the way the pieces relate and interrelate mathematically. Although it was created to be used successfully by the youngest toddler, NIFTYsystem has so many open-ended investigative and manipulative possibilities that it is intriguing to all ages. There are no rules, no right way to interact with these safe, large-scale manipulatives. Children are free to explore in their own way – naturally! For children ages 12 months and up.

  • OPEN-ENDED EXPLORATORY PLAY: So many concepts to investigate – pegging, fitting, sorting, patterning, comparing, and more!
  • FINE MOTOR & HAND-EYE COORDINATION: Large, chunky columns are easy for little hands to grasp, hold, and place in the board; developing crucial skills through play. The holes are loose enough for a no- fail fit, but tight enough to hold the columns in place for successful independent interactions.
  • DEVELOPMENTAL BENEFITS: This fit-together peg board helps young children develop an understanding of the physical world and spatial concepts – skills important to early literacy.
  • CREATIVE THINKING & PROBLEM SOLVING: Experimenting with open-ended raw materials and interchangeable parts provides opportunities for making choices. Experiencing materials that encourage development of motor, perceptual, language, social, and conceptual skills.
  • DIMENSIONS: Base board measures 6” L x 9.5” W x 1” H. Three shorter square columns measure 1.25” L x 1.25" W x 1.75” H. Three taller square columns measure 1.25” L x 1.25" W. x 3.5” H.
