With these four wooden blocks containing cylinders children gain a feeling for the differences of length and width in the same shape.
Concepts such as tall - short, thick - thin, narrow - wide etc. are learned. The wooden cylinders have knobs which train fine motor skills when removing or inserting the cylinders (similar to holding a pen).
With each of the four blocks, the children practice different tasks:
1) same diameter - different heights
2) different diameter - same heights
3) larger diameter with increasing heights
4) larger diameter with smaller heights
