We love this product. We use it with our 10 month old supervised. It's kinda heavy and could hurt a little toe if you don't help them play with it. He loves it!!! Moving the beads back and forth is fun for him. We can't wait to start teaching him how to count on it. You can even use it to teach colors!!!

Good for kids; not QUITE what we needed for a different use

Comments about Melissa & Doug Abacus - Classic Wooden Educational Counting Toy With 100 Beads:

The abacus is sturdy and well-constructed. However, for OUR purposes we would have been happier if it had a wider base to provide more stability. We also think it would be a better learning tool if each row of beads had five beads in one color and five beads in a second color. We are using the abacus for our grown son who had a stroke. He is very slowly recovering but lost the ability to speak and read. He was formerly very number/math-friendly, and we hope the abacus will help with restoring some of that ability. He has shown distinct signs that he still retains some ability with numbers, and we want to enhance that. We realize our intended use diverges from the usual for kids, so take the critical comments with a grain of salt. Had we bought this for a child, we would probably have given it a five-star rating. I will also note that our son was pleased with all of us zinging beads across the wires... maybe not a numerical function, but still fun... and making him laugh is a reward in and of itself

          Vibrant primary colored beads have my grand-children children thinking their playing with a toy instead of learning. Counting, math problems.
