Froebel Gift - Making Classic Toys That Teach: Step-by-Step Instructions for Building Froebel's Iconic Developmental Toys
Making Classic Toys That Teach: Step-by-Step Instructions for Building Froebel's Iconic Developmental

Froebel Gift

The Froebel Gifts are perhaps the world's first educational toys. Developed in the early 1800's by Friedrich Froebel, inventor of Kindergarten, the Gifts appear deceptively simple but represent a sophisticated approach to child development. Over the last 180 years these intricately conceived playthings have had a widespread impact, becoming interwoven with the history of art/design, popular culture, and education. Inspiring and informing the work of Maria Montessori, Rudolf Steiner, and others, Froebel’s Gifts influenced Frank Lloyd Wright, Albert Einstein, Kandinsky, Klee, and more while Mattel used them in designing Tinker Toys, Color Cubes, and Unit Blocks. In Making Classic Toys That Teach, Doug Stowe, a professional woodworker and teacher, presents the history and valuable benefits of each gift while providing step-by-step instruction on how to build each toy and the box to hold them. Each of the 10 Froebel Gifts are featured: 1) balls of yarn, introducing color, shape and motion; 2) sphere, cylinder, and cubes on a hanging device; 3) divided cube building blocks; 4) rectangular blocks; 5) wooden cubes and triangular blocks; 6) geometric building blocks in various shapes; 7) colorful geometric shapes; 8) sticks and rings; 9) points – small colorful objects, like beads ...

Froebel Gift - Froebel Curvilinear Gift Curved Wood Blocks
Froebel Curvilinear Gift Curved Wood

Froebel Gift

The Curvilinear Series of Gifts was developed, like many of the Froebel Gifts, after Froebel/'s death. Froebel established the philosophical foundation for these Gifts in his book Education by Development, but their use was not formalized until much later. Purists have argued against adding to the traditional Gift series, yet Froebel was clearly advocating the use of the curvilinear solids in his writings. Our Curvilinear Gift is a slight modification from the cylindrical set sold by the Milton Bradley Company (and featured in the book The Kindergarten Building Gifts by Elizabeth Harrison & Belle Woodson). Our curvilinear setis divided into three concentric rings 1/2/" thick with 3 vertical layers. In this way, the 3-fold division is maintained in both directions. This Gift is best used with children 5 years old and older. This set contains small pieces that may pose a choking hazard for young children. Manufactured in Viet Nam. WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

Anker / Anchor Stone Froebel Gift Set

Froebel Gift

The classic Froebel Gift 5 set made from the faux stone blocks of the Anker-Steinbaukasten factory in Germany. Froebel invented Kindergarten and inspired a generation of artists and architects, including Frank Lloyd Wright. The wooden block Gift sets also inspired Froebel's neighbor, Friedrich A Richter, to produce the blocks in a cast stone version. The Anker block sets became world renown architectural building toys, and now the factory has returned full circle by producing the Froebel Gift sets. The Gift 5 set contains stone cubes, triangular prism half-cubes and quarter-cubes in a wood box with a slide-top.
