As a homeschooling household, we use every situation as a learning opportunity. For the last months our four year old new hobby is puzzles, he simply loves to place them together. Since we have also been teaching him the numbers, and very basic subtractions and additions (only up to 10) we decided to give this binomial cube a try. It has been a great hit with him. Not only does he things about numbers, he also uses his logic, and his practical thinking. This binomial cube by Intellitoyz is made out of solid wood, the walls of the cube has hinges, it has a top or lid which is not meant to close the cube, and the blocks have different spades, colors (red, black and blue) and sizes. It includes a bonus of three sheets of stickers which are great for motivation and rewards. Our cube pieces had some visual imperfections right out of the box but it does not affect how the cube works, so we are fine with it. The imperfections actually allow us to teach our child that nothing is perfect nor needs to be perfect in order to work. This binomial cube is a Montessori teaching tool, we do not follow the Montessori curriculum but we do have fun utilizing our adaptations of some of their methods, and tools to educate our son. We have nothing negative to say about this binomial cube, nor would we change anything about it. It works as expected, and depending how you use it, it can be a fun learning tool for little ones.
