Children and parents alike will love to play with this Hello starter kit of Kontu modular, magnetic wooden STEM Blocks that nurture a positive mindset in early learners of mathematics whilst learning through play. This 20 piece set contains 4 magnetic trays, 10 magnetic bits, 8 activity cards and 18 number cards. Award winning Kontu STEM Blocks are made in Thailand from sustainably sourced rubberwood and rare earth magnets. A great early years resource for schools, nurseries and homeschool settings, exploring early mathematical concepts such as counting, numerals, physics and magnetism. Designed to grow with your child, whilst introducing new concepts and challenges that will appeal to children and adults of all ages.
Children will love to explore the loose parts in open ended play, feeling the force of magnetic parts as they repel and attract one another. The magnetics bits are easy for small hands to grasp and are a fantastic aid for developing fine motor skills.

Patrick Greenwood, creator of Kontu, winner of the 2020 Parents' Choice Awards Gold Award, set out to design toys that would equip playful young learners with early skills in STEM and maths development. Beautifully crafted in Thailand from sustainable rubberwood and rare earth magnets, Kontu are natural, tactile, educational toys that will engage the whole family in learning through play. The wood used to make Kontu is harvested from rubberwood trees that no longer produce latex and would otherwise be burnt, and new trees are planted to replace them. With a strong social conscience, Kontu believes that all children should have access to educational opportunities, therefore they dedicate a portion of profits to supporting organisations that provide equitable education in early childhood.
