Description

Ingenuity and architectural brilliance inspired the Romans to incorporate form and function into design. The arches allowed the aqueducts to flow freely and provide sufficient water for the growing cities. This set allows children to use and learn the same engineering principles the Romans followed. The top center stone, called the keystone, is the last block to be inserted. Use the included frame to help construct your own arch. Includes 114 pieces and instructions.

Through play with blocks children discover shapes and quantities, spacial dimensions and physical laws. Blocks foster creative cognitive development and foster the understanding of basic physics such as statics, dynamics, and gravity. Blocks also improve fine motor skills and spatial thinking. Not only do they provide hours of creative fun and entertainment, building blocks can be used purposely to foster children's mathematical perception.

About:
Haba has been manufacturing high quality wood toys, games, rattles and dolls for over 75 years. The Haba catalog of over 1,500 items includes educational toys, marble runs, sand toys, tents, puppets and other classic, feel-good toys designed to grow with the child.

Haba’s uniquely playful, wholesome designs incorporate mostly non-gender specific characters and colors and cover ages birth to 99. They facilitate children’s development while making their lives happier, more exciting, and full of the delight of discovery.

It all began with wooden toys that were “finely sanded and polished wonderfully smooth, just right for tender children’s hands.” Today, skilled craftsmen use beech and maple woods from sustainable German forests for most of the toys, and safe, non-toxic, water based lacquers. The packaging utilizes recycled corrugated with as little foam/etc. as possible.

Haba products are both innovative and simple with a classic quality which ensures these cherished tools for exploration will stand the test of time.
