If you have any questions feel free to ask. My email is on my page if you'd rather communicate through there.
The manufacuring quality of the rods is consistent for each size and throughout the set.
I would recommend buying a larger set of Cuisenaire rods--at least the full set of 241 rods--or two of these smaller sets (which might be cheaper, all in all), as the limitations of the small set become very ovious even when working with the rods by oneself with larger numbers or more rod-intensive configurations.
I am a language teacher who is very interested in Gattegno's extension of Cuisenaire's invention of the colored rods for the teaching of mathematics and languages. I use Cuisenaire rods to create visual analogs of dialogues and sentence patterns so that my students can feel the difference between speaking word by word (which no one does in any language under normal circumstances, but they learn to do after having been conditioned with a grammar + vocabulary aproach to language learning) and instead phrase the words in intonational groups, much like musicians phrase notes and dancers phrase their steps.
On a personal level, I also play around with the Cuisenaire rods to reteach myself basic mathematics, since I am one of the tens of millions of people who hit a wall in their study of math in elementary school. Reading Gattegno's books, I recall the mathematical terms used in class and the terror and confusion I felt as a kid who just wasn't getting it. I also intuitively recognize that, had I been taught visually and not verbally, I would have been much better at math and what Gattegno calls "mathematization."
So I use the rods profesional for language teahcing and personally for my math re-education.
This is a small set for tabletop play. Fellow homeschoolers/unschoolers may wish to buy a second, larger set for floor play. If you have older children or more than one child, consider getting several sets.
I understand why these are colored (to identify units easily) but I wish they were also available in natural wood for an extra challenge!
