This is an original 'From Jennifer' design that combines tracing and counting into a learning toy/tool for children. It can help one learn how to form their Chinese numbers correctly and learn what each number represents. This is a maple hardwood board engraved with gently curved grooves, providing a form to trace with either your finger or the included tracing stick.
Measures 10.5 x 7.5-inches and is 1/2" thick.
Please keep in mind that small wooden balls can pose a choking hazard for young children, so it is recommended to use the balls with children only over the age of 3 years old. The maker did hear back from one customer that instead of using the balls, she put dry breakfast cereal in their place. The maker suggests they even think it would be fun with raisins, chocolate chips, etc. Many others have used beads, small stones, and even flower petals to fill the dimples and large tracing numbers of the board.
The numbers side is the side of the board with large numbers and grooves that you will trace to feel the motion of writing each number. You may also enjoy doing crayon rubbings of the numbers or filling their grooves with the balls from the counting side (or other things such as beads, stones, etc).
Made in the United States by 'Treasures from Jennifer'.
