Nins, Mates & Coins Set
This colorful, open-ended wooden set lets children build, invent stories and dive into their imaginations, teaching them valuable fundamental skills as they play. When children are young, sorting, stacking and categorizing the pieces lay the foundation for early math concepts. As they get older, they’ll practice planning, problem-solving and coordination as they use the pieces to build what they imagine. Later, this set can ignite storytelling opportunities as they turn their peg people into original characters and continue building new creations. There’s no right or wrong way to play with this heirloom toy and staple of Waldorf education.
