This outdoor exploring set, is an amazing value! It exceeded expectations. So many opportunities for teaching and learning in a fun new way. We played with this at the park with my grandchildren ages three and four, and soon a whole crowd of curious children gathered around. There were many ways to play and learn with this set for all different ages. You can do colors, shapes, sets and counting, it's great! And older kids can really get into using it in role playing fantasy. I fully recommend it. Super great quality!
