WEDGiTS was once described as a stack of square donuts that form into a four-sided pyramid. However described, WEDGiTS have proudly found their way into homes, classrooms and occupational therapy centres across five continents. WEDGiTS building blocks are graduated in size. The five primary block shapes nest and layer in vertical and horizontal positions. Mathematicians refer to these block shapes as rhombus and octahedron. Kids gravitate toward WEDGiTS because the blocks are designed to naturally align or drop into place, offering no wrong way to build! Educators often refer to this as an open-ended manipulative. Occupational therapists recommend this type of product because it provides any age with a self-esteem platform. Whether for a child of special needs or an adult recovering from brain trauma, WEDGiTS always provides an environment for something new to be created. The satisfaction gained from a building accomplishment is a key milestone in cognitive development. Open-ended toys allow for creative designs without having to follow a given pattern or set of instructions. WEDGiTS also offer the opportunity for self-esteem development and has been recognised for such through key organisations like Lekotek and AblePlay.
