About this item:
You won’t have seen a construction toy quite like this before. These metallic-finish, mirrored boulders are smooth and shiny, and make the perfect gift from birth and beyond.
They come in three sizes, with smooth defined edges, making them perfect for growing hands. They are a super addition to other construction toys, from blocks to household items, such as tins, tubes and boxes!
A baby will marvel at themselves in the sides, but they will also be physically challenged with learning how to hold and manipulate these unusual shapes. As your child grows, the hexagonal sides of these 3D shapes make them fascinating to balance, while the mirrored edges provide new and interesting dimensions to the models that they create.
- Handling these great shapes is brilliant for motor development, hand–eye coordination and sensory development.
- As children stack and build with these boulders they will begin to explore some mathematical concepts, such as counting, sorting, sequencing, measuring and exploring weight distribution.
Note: These are not suitable to be used in sand and water. Avoid use in direct sunlight. Not suitable to be left outdoors.

There are so many uses for these simple shapes not just around early mathematic concepts and construction but also early scientific exploration of reflection, light and colour - to name but a few!
