ITSPHUN®: Interlocking Triangles, Squares, Pentagons, and Hexagons Using Notches
A system of geometric shapes (made by us from plastic, wood, paper, foam, felt, etc.) that can be combined in myriad ways to make wonderful and colorful creations at the intersection of art and mathematics
- Intuitive, easy and fun to use, does not require force to connect the pieces
- Open-ended, colorful and visually inspiring, encourages exploration and creativity
- Helps develop spatial visualization ability and the capacity to recognize and create symmetry patterns
- Children as young as 4 year old "get it" immediately and are able to build interesting models in minutes
- Compact and durable, great for travel
- Scientific American listed ITSPHUN in its Educational Gift Guide for 2012.
This beautifully designed set of foam interlocking shapes lets you build 3-D geometric sculptures. A pamphlet explains regular polygons and Platonic, Johnson and Archimedean solids. But kids will have fun just experimenting.
