Product Description

With 100 brightly colored wooden beads that slide back and forth, this hands-on learning toy helps with counting skills as well as the development of hand-eye coordination. Dimensions: 12H x 12W x 2.75D inches.


Extend your child's conceptual understanding and skill acquisition in math with these engaging STEM Learning Tips.
1. The abacus is considered an ancient calculator that dates back to 2300 BC. Then and now, It is used to teach math skills, such as counting, addition, and subtraction at the early learning level and more complex operations like multiplication and division to older children. Use the abacus to develop your child's counting skills. Have your child move all the beads to one side of the abacus frame. Move 2 beads on the first row to the other side of the frame and have your child count them. Continue this process on each row, moving a different number of beads each time and have your child count them. Then have your child count how many beads remain on each row.
2. The abacus also promotes a child's ability to understand patterns. Guide your child to create a pattern of beads on each row. For example, a group of 2 beads, a space, one bead, a space, 2 beads, a space, one bead and so on. Have your child repeat the pattern of beads on each row and when complete, view the pattern. Perhaps your child can then suggest a new pattern to try.


Research has shown that a STEM education gives children the edge in becoming economic and technological leaders of the global marketplace.

Our kids love their Abacus! At the ages of 3 and 4 they can count to 100, add and subtract with ease! With an abacus, they are able to learn the math concepts, not just memorizing numbers. When they grasped the concepts, there was no stopping their progress!I can realistically see us moving to multiplication within the next 7 or 8 months. They say things like, "Math is fun!" and play number games, quizzing each other! I couldn't be happier with this product. Every child should have one! It is now my baby shower and birthday gift of choice! - And it's sturdy too!

I purchase this product in the store without closely inspecting the quality of the wood finish. I did so at home to discover the finish was rough with prickly small burs. As I rubbed my hand over the wood I was stuck with a splinter.
This item seems sturdy but they quality of the wood finish could be much safer for children soft skin/hands.
I had to sand the wood with 120 grit, steel wool 000 to get it very smooth. Next I sealed it with water based clear coat to give it a nice semi-glossy finish.
I will be hesitant to purchase this line of products in the future.
Please make sure your brand 'Imaginarium' toys safe for children.

Moving beads to count was a difficult concept for my 4 year old to grasp despite his ability to use other types of counting tools. I'd recommend finding a youtube video to assist you.
