This material can be used as three-part cards or as a shape puzzle.
Our guide includes 10 play activities to perform with our material. Your child will have hours of fun learning about shapes!
Our set also comes with a cotton bag which will allow you to give a Montessori stereognostic bag lesson to your child (detailed instructions are provided in our guide).
Our wooden three-part cards contain 10 shapes: circle, triangle, square, rectangle, pentagon, curvilinear triangle, quatrefoil, trapezium, oval, and ellipse. Those shapes are the same as the ones included with the insets for design, a classic Montessori material.
The material is made of plain, European beech wood. The shapes are stained with natural, plastic-free stains. The cards and shapes are varnished with 100% raw linseed oil.

Amazing company. Brilliant service as always. Item arrived quickly. Product is beautifully made and the children are going to love it. Will definitely be buying again.
Chuffed to bits with our Christmas tree toy! It’s absolutely beautifully made. High quality finish and adaptable too. I love that it came with a guide on how to use it and it’s variations for different age groups. Thanks so much!
