5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Obsessive Mommy on November 8, 2012
My kids had a blast playing with the Real World Geometric Shapes! I was also able to lend the set to my son's Preschool class and my daughter's 1st grade class. The teachers both loved it and so did the students. I was really impressed with the quality of the shapes. They were make with hard plastic and after inserting the cardboard, the cover fit perfectly on each piece without falling off. Each item looked so realistic once it was in the shape! My favorites were the cake, the can of soup and the wooden block. After playing with the shapes with my kiddos, they all know the difference between and prism and a pyramid. They still have a little trouble with the long names, but we are working on it! We had fun talking about other things in real life that are the same shape. (a can of Pringles, the game pieces in Trouble etc.) I would recommend the Real World Folding Geometric Shapes to anyone who wants a fun and easy way to learn about 3-D shapes!

Like all other Learning Resources products we've tried in our homeschooling classroom, the Real World Folding Geometric Shapes are high quality, durable, and realistic.

Included in this set/kit are eight common 3-D geometric shape solids, each made of clear plastic:

- cube

- cylinder

- hexagonal prism

- rectangular prism

- triangular prism

- square pyramid

- triangular pyramid

- cone

Also included are 24, glossy, full-color cardstock inserts which can be folded and placed inside the shapes, secured with a clear plastic side ("door") to hold each in place.

The rectangular prism can be a tent...then a piece of chocolate cake. The cone can be a party hat...and minutes later a Christmas tree. The switching out is easy and the real-world application is self-explanatory for little minds!

By Annie Moffatt on November 18, 2012
My girls were so excited to open and explore this product because of all of the fun nets that came with the shapes. Each shape had a couple of different nets that made the learning process exciting and interactive. As they explored with each shape, they were able to see and talk about why or why not a shape could fit inside the plastic pieces. This resource is perfect for teaching basic 3D shapes to young children, but also great for explaining more advanced features (points, vertices, and edges) to older children. The nets are super durable and make it easy for children to use this for hands-on exploring.

As a former educator, I would highly recommend this product.

I am teaching my son preschool this school year at home and each week my son learns a new shape or color and on the weeks he learns a new shape, I help him "see" what each shape looks like with this Real World Folding Geometric Shapes kit.

They really help him relate 3-D geometric shapes to real-world objects and learn basic shapes as well!

The 24 durable inserts were really easy to insert in each shape and feature playful designs that my son can recognize and relate to! The shapes measure 3"H so they can be easily stored and played with and held with little hands.

So if you are trying to teach your children about shapes and 3D shapes, help them learn with these everyday items that they can hold.

Disclosure: I received this item for review in exchange for my honest opinion.

These Real World Folding 3D Geometric Shapes are geared toward grades K+. Since Bryson (age 3) already knows the basic shapes, I decided this would be a good time to introduce him to geometric shapes too. The "real world" aspect of these shapes give him something to relate each one too- paint cans (cylinder), Christmas trees (cone), hay bales (rectangular prism), etc.

Bryson enjoyed stacking the blocks and the knocking them over. As he played, I took the time to explain what each shape was and then we talked about others items that were the same shape. The bottom snaps off so you can easily and quickly change the inserts inside. They come with tape to help secure the bottoms so they will stay in place. I'll probably take some clear tape and add for extra durability later on.

Overall, I really like these shapes and I think we'll get a lot of use out of them in the years to come. They offer a fun way to introduce geometric shapes and are easy for kids to understand! With so many different inserts, they won't get old because you can always switch them out to something new.

I received this set to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions remain my own.

I received this set about a month ago and have grown to like it quite a bit. The possibilities of how you can teach and what you can do revolving around every edge, curve, and vertex is endless!

The set comes with 24 durable nets (inserts) featuring real world designs such as a soup can, die, tent, ice cream cone, and many other real world shapes. Included as well, 8 common shapes: cube, cylinder, hexagonal prism, rectangular prism, triangular prism, square pyramid and triangular pyramid.

You'll find the activity guide very useful in giving you ideas in how you can use the Geometric Shapes. For example, younger children may enjoy the set more playing a mix and match learning game as well as finding other objects around the house that share the same general shape. Where as older kids can discuss points, design their own object nets to put inside the clear shape forms, and much more.

My husband and I both agreed that the Geometric shape pieces make great visual aid for many different types of lessons or activities. And the fact that you can get some construction paper or card stock to trace a shape, and make your own inserts makes this set very appealing.

My children are ages almost 2 years old and nearly 5. When we brought the set out to teach them, they mostly just stacked the pieces. My daughter caught on to the names of each shape really well. And I liked that she could see and handle how the dimensions were instead of just seeing the specific shape on paper. This set has prompted many questions from my daughter and she's even pointed out shapes in and outside our home that are similar to what I taught her when using this set.

Overall thoughts from our family is that because the shapes are muti-use and changeable we highly recommend this set in being a quite useful addition to any home or classroom.
