The first stage consists of wide red coloured wooden rings. The large center of the rings will help the child be successful with their limited hand-eye coordination and wrist development.
The second stage is a set of green colored discs with a small center. This material helps the toddler develop hand-eye coordination by placing the discs one after the other on the dowel. This helps the child to refine their hand-eye coordination skills and aid in wrist development.
The third stage is a set of graded blue colored wooden rings. The concept of putting the rings in the correct order, from large to small, helps them learn size gradation as they stack the rings on the dowel.
The varying shapes and the sizes of the rings and discs help the child practice the different finger grasps required to stack each set.
This Montessori inspired toy is designed to encourage the development of fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. It is also a perfect aid to introduce basic colours to toddlers.
- During its lifetime, a tree is subjected to many natural forces that cause variations in wood grain, color, knots, splits, and stains. These variations are not defects. They enhance the beauty of the wood and add to the characteristic of the handcrafted toys making each toy unique.
