155 blocks are available for making many different patterns. A drawstring bag is included for easy travel and storage. 6 colors and shapes come with 24 design cards. Wooden shapes feel soft and smooth in the hands, thick and beautifully colored, not heavy wood, far superior. Manipulatives for homeschooling, but a fun activity for the family to work on together. So many amazing connections when kids discover different ways to combine the shapes. The star show map is divided into 2-5 stars and different levels of difficulty.
