A set includes 4 wooden blocks and 20 cylinders to teach the child dimension and understand dimensional variations in objects. Each of the blocks is a rectangular prism with concave faces to facilitate holding firmly. The surfaces are polished to a fine glossy finish.

The knobs are the pencil grip type.The blocks are finished with a lot of precision and accuracy as dictated by the Montessori method.The cylinder blocks introduce the child to the first stage of visual discrimination of size.
