The quality multiplication ring at Reverie Craft handcrafted with solid durable maple wood is a great educational toy for children of different age to explore and learn. Little hands are kept busy stretching rubber bands across the ring or winding it up with yarn, building fine motor skills and dexterity. Older children will enjoy the hands-on mathematical experience: counting, multiplying, fractioning.
The original design not only made this wonderful educational toy versatile, but also practical and easily used by little hands. There are 10 pegs on the ring as well as a peg in the middle for exploring fractions, the number 1-10 are engraved on the side and each peg has a notch in the side to hold the yarn in place while wrapping.
As you wind the yarn around the ring, it creates different patterns depending on whether you count by ones, twos, threes, and so on. The visualization helps children to understand and get familiar with how each multiplication works. For example, if you skip every other peg as you count by twos, the yarn comes back to the top, having created a pentagon and shows how dividing 10 pegs by 2 equals 5 — the five-sided pentagon. Discovering what each number forms is a delight.
It is also a great tool for learning and practicing counting. When passing by the top "0", continue using the numbers as the ones place as you count. So, winding around by 2's, you'll count 2, 4, 6, 8, and then 0 becomes 10. If you continue, now the next two is 12 and then 14 and so on.
