1 to 10 - Katsumi Komagata

A fun way to learn the abstract number about quantity for young children, 1 to 10 consist of graphic cards with various colourful dots and holes. By opening or folding the cards, children will figure out the increasing and decreasing of the shapes, and see how the same quantity of shapes would generate different impressions when they are displayed in different arrangements or colours.

從1到10是一種讓幼兒學習關於數量的抽像數字的有趣方式;數字 1到10的圖畫咭帶有各種彩色點和小孔。 通過打開或折疊,孩子們會揣摩到形狀的增加和減少,並看到當相同數量的形狀,以不同的排列或顏色顯示時,它們如何產生不同的印象。
