Bajo Mendelson Balancing Game
This set of 15 wooden figures makes a stimulating balancing game that will challenge whoever plays with them. Children and adults alike will enjoy playing with these wooden people in a variety of ways - stack them up to make human pyramids and towers, upright or upside down; make patterns; use as maths toys and counters; and as part of imaginative play in combination with wooden blocks and other toys from Babipur. We think that the Mendelson figures can be utilised as soldiers to protect a fairy castle, populate a train station in a toy train set and tend wooden farm animals - but the possibilities are endless.
Parents and educators interested in Montessori theory will love this versatile wooden toy that can be used for education and play in a variety of ways. Grasping, moving and positioning the 15 Mendelson figures will develop children's dexterity, hand to eye co-ordination as well as encouraging creative, imaginative and patient play - on their own or co-operatively with others. A second set is recommended for children who are eager to build larger structures.
This set was designed by Wojciech Bajor, head designer at Bajo, and ethically made using solid, sustainably sourced wood in Poland.
Schematic play: This toy will appeal to children demonstrating the positioning schema - balancing, sorting and stacking toys and objects in particular order or place.
Sensory toy: hand-eye co-ordination, fine motor skills
These figures measure approx 7cm x 8cm.
Suitable from age 3.
Bajo's beautiful wooden toys have been designed and manufactured in Poland over the last 25 years. These top notch toys are wonderfully tactile and will inspire imaginative play and learning. The manufacturing process is green from start to finish - sustainable wood from beech, birch, sycamore, acacia, cherry, walnut and plum trees is sourced from carefully managed forests in Poland. Skilled crafters transform the wood into toys that are treated with eco, non-toxic paints and oils, and waste wood is turned into fuel briquettes. Bajo toys are great for open-ended play and will be treasured by children for years before being passed on to new generations to be enjoyed all over again.
