    We use this for learning to count with our 2 yr old he thinks it's fun to slide th beads from one side to the other. When he's a little older we will teach him how to properly use it for adding and subtracting. It's nicely made and should last many years!!

    Abacus - great teaching tool!
    Posted 9/3/2013 by Jane Tannenbaum

    We bought abacus to help our 4-year-old granddaughter learn the basics of arithmetics, such as: quantity, counting, addition, subtraction. This product is a great teaching and learning tool. It looks and feels great: it is colorful, the size is just right for a 4-year-old, it can stand on a table or on a child's lap: it is light-weight, although the construction is quite sturdy, the wood is polished and the quality of this product is superb. Most importantly, it took us just 20 minutes to help our granddaughter understand what such operations as addition and subtraction mean and she is doing these and other operations easily now.

    This was a Christmas gift to my grandchilren ages 5, 3 and 1.5. It wasn't the "big thing" by far, but all showed interest and their parents were really happy with the idea of a learning aid in the home.
