Where there is a product in the archive we have photographed it. Where we have no product but do have a catalogue then we have scanned the catalogue page as an image 'holder' until we get an actual product to photograph. Where we have no product or no image then we've posted a 'WANTED' sign. Please contact us through the 'Contact Us' link in the menu bar if you can help.
Our grateful thanks to those who have already contributed images, acknowledgements have been made in product text.
A child should first become acquainted with the idea of "number" and "quantity" during free play, if complete comprehension is to follow in succeeding years.
Counting and Threading encourages interest in simple number sequence and quantity relationships. Nine plastic plaques can be matched to their corresponding counters - by colour, by the "domino" dots on one side, and eventually by the number engraved on their reverse side. Plaques and counters can be threaded in series, the counters can also be piled up according to their colours and quantities.
