Rated 5 out of 5Â by kindergarten Teacher helps solidify sense of number
I use this abacus with my kindergarteners everyday. I have purchased 4 for the classroom, for small group activities. We use our abacus as part of our "Morning Meeting", counting the number of days we've been in school, and then just making numbers. My kids can "read" any number that I make. The abacus' in my room are handled regularly by 20 5/6 year olds so I appreciate their durability. They also look beautiful sitting on the windowsill.

I bought this for my 30 year old brother who is special needs and is also blind. We used to have one when we were kids, and he loved it! This one is very bright and colorful for those who can see, very sturdy and great quality. I would recommend this product. Melissa & Doug make great toys!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Elvis's Mama Years of fun to come!!!
We love this product. We use it with our 10 month old supervised. It's kinda heavy and could hurt a little toe if you don't help them play with it. He loves it!!! Moving the beads back and forth is fun for him. We can't wait to start teaching him how to count on it. You can even use it to teach colors!!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by MDGrandma This product is well made and colorful.
I purchased this for my 18 month old granddaughter. She loves it. She carries it around and sides the colorful beads back and forth. She is thoroughly enjoying this colorful product and as she grows she will continue to play with this item and learn from it.
