I hesitantly bought this toy for my son for Xmas, trying to find something for him to learn math with. He is a bright 3.5 year old. I figured I would be working with him using these wooden rulers, which are of a much higher quality than I was expecting. So on Xmas he opens the toy, and plays with them himself, measuring daddy's foot, his own foot, etc. I show him the included book about how the rulers represent numbers, and how these numbers can be added together... just a cursory review. Well, about an hour later I was in the kitchen, and he comes running in and says, "Mommy! Guess what? Eight plus four is twelve!". Needless to say, I was pretty amazed... so I would have to say this is a pretty amazing toy --- you WILL have to work with the child, its not necessarily something that will fascinate them for long hours of play like legos or something... but it sure does hit the nail on the head when it comes to learning math. And its fun, too. I can't tell you how impressed I am. Plus, these rulers are build to last... so long as you don't throw them in the bath or something. I highly recommend this set.

I found this toy described in a home schooling magazine and sought out a more reasonable price here at Amazon. (Which I found when I purchased the Inchimals last week... $22).

My almost 5 year old LOVES this product. We have been extremely casual about pre-school this year, and he begs to "do school" with the Inchimals. He has been measuring toys and household items. He has also been learning to recognize the numbers he hadn't mastered yet.

They are great in that they are specific lengths and can be laid out (or stood up like stairs) to show the relationship in size. He can see that 7 is bigger than 6. He can count the marked out inches along the side or dots on the end. As we have only had this product a few days now, I can see how in the future we can use them as a tool for learning addition and subtraction. This is the best math manipulative!

Pros:
-Great idea for a toy that teaches math! The idea is in the spirit on Montessori counting rods (check those out too!). There are 12 rods/blocks ranging from 1-12 inches tall; each features a different animal. My son loves to add up two animals to get the third one. At age 3, he uses included notebook with tasks independently (by himself) and even scribbles appropriate numbers in the notebook. This is one of the toys that he picks up and works with by himself:).
Cons:
-Upon opening the box there was a strong smell like that of some markers, or glue?. Blocks did not smell, just the box, maybe it was the marker that was included in the box. The blocks are made in China.
-Blocks came with some small defects in paint and the edges chip off paint very fast. The paint cover is glossy like that on Thomas and Friends wooden locomotives, but chips much easier.
-On one side of the block, there are little stripes marking the inches like on the ruler, but without numbers. My son counts the stripes and there is always one two many (he does not know that you don't count the first one). It would be better if one-inch intervals were indicated with alternating colors as in Montessori counting rods.
Otherwise, perfect toy and learning material.

I bought this item for my young grandchildren. My daughter wanted to use it in her homeschooling. One child is 5 and the other one is 2 1/2. She said she had to take them away from them because the paint chipped right away.

My 2 and 5 year old kids love this toy. I love that it teaches math concepts in a fun way. I have only one complaint about this toy and it's a pretty big one, considering the price point: the paint chipped off 10 seconds after we took the blocks out of the package. My son stacked them, they fell over on the carpet and instantly had large chips all over them. There appears to be no protective coating. The designs are cute, but they looked like we'd owned them for a year within 5 minutes of owning them. This product is designed for small children and yet not sturdy enough for them. In my opinion, the $30 price point warrants higher quality.

My son LOVES Inchimals!

If you have a preschooler who is long past the preK emphasis on shapes and series and who can count past 20, then consider this product!

My son is 5 and starting kindergarten in September with some modifications for sensory and attention issues. Even with those challenges, he sits and works on the problems presented in the dry-erase book that comes with the blocks for extended periods of time. The simple mathematical equations in the book require that he transfer numerical value from the animal blocks into numbers on the page, and then back again from the page to the blocks. Plus, he writes the numbers (great practice!) and draws the animal faces in the book. Good fine motor skill building.

An added benefit I didn't consider when buying this set is that the long, thin shape also challenges his block-building skills when he decides to be a normal 5yo and just build with blocks. :)

We love these.

We use this for my 4 year old daughter, and she's learning math without knowing it. we're not really following the instructions in the book, as she's slightly too young for doing the real math. She actually kept begging to go through the additions/subtractions in the book but we told her she would have to wait. Note: My daughter isn't usually the self-motivated type when it comes to learning academic stuff...so it's amazing that this game fascinated her so much! We made up games...puppet play, measuring how tall each animal is, stacking them up and trying to make the other animals match the height...etc. She has fun with it!
The paint on the blocks do come off rather easily. So beware if you have young children around. We only play with this toy when my baby is sleeping.
