Excellerations® NIFTYsystem® Two-Peg Board Set
Item # 900196C3
NIFTY stands for Natural Investigations for Toddler Years. This unique integrated system of very inviting exploratory play materials has chunky pieces to fit into, over, under, and on top of each other. 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: Rings sized just right for little hands to grasp, hold, and place on the board; developing crucial skills through play.
- COMPARE AND CONTRAST: Children can notice similarities and differences in size, shape, and feel between the 2 different types of rings.
- 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.
- INCLUDES: Two-peg board base with 6 skinny rings and 3 column rings.
