Introducing the New SumBlox Mini!

Our Original SumBlox concept is now available in miniature. SumBlox offer a unique way of learning through play. The original blocks have been used by educators, parents and children to develop a wide range of skills for years.

The SumBlox Mini set open up a whole new range of learning opportunities. The New SumBlox Mini set are approximately 50% smaller than the originals.

The SumBlox Mini Basic set includes a solid beechwood box for holding your blocks when they’re being put away. Also included is the all-new deck of 80 Early Childhood Activity Cards to develop an incredible range of mathematical skills, from reflection, division, multiplication, problem solving, races, games and brand new imaginative creations.

The New SumBlox Mini Basic Set includes 80 solid beechwood blocks. With the same artisan quality and durability of our larger, original sets. We have specially designed the smaller blocks so that they stack just as well as our original set.

The blocks included are;

  • 32 x single blocks
  • 12 x two blocks
  • 8 x three blocks
  • 6 x four blocks
  • 2 x ten blocks
  • and 4 of each 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 blocks

50% smaller with 70% more blocks!

The world of maths in a building block.

Sumblox are a set of wooden blocks shaped in the numerals 1-10. Each block is proportional in size to the value of the number. So a 2 block is twice as tall as a 1 block and a 10 block is ten times as tall.

By manipulating the blocks and stacking them in different combinations, children can learn to recognize numerals, explore addition and subtraction and practice basic multiplication, division, and fractions.

For what age are SumBlox best suited?

SumBlox are great for children and adults of all ages but are best suited, academically, for children ages 2-12.

What mathematical concepts can SumBlox teach?

Students can learn a wealth of information through play and hands-on exploration. These topics include:

Number Sense
  • Number recognition
  • One-to-one correspondence
  • Compare numbers
  • Subitizing
  • Counting
  • Cardinality
  • Number sequence
  • Hierarchical Inclusion
  • Understanding our base-ten system
  • Place value
  • Measuring Lengths
  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively
  • Understand Equivalence
  • Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common
  • Algebraic Thinking
  • Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight
  • Classify objects into given categories

Addition / Subtraction
  • Solve Addition and Subtraction word problems using objects
  • Compose and decompose numbers
  • Find missing addends
  • Skip counting

Multiplication / Division
  • Define multiplication; emphasis on multiples
  • Find factors of whole numbers and use commutative property of multiplication
  • Classify whole numbers (greater than one) as prime or composite
  • Draw conclusions about the factors of a whole number
  • Use associative property of multiplication
  • Use distributive property of multiplication

Fractions / Adding Fractions
  • Define denominator of fractions
  • Define numerator of fractions within halves, fourths, and eights
  • Find equivalent fractions within thirds, sixths, ninths, and twelfths
  • Compare two fractions using inequality symbols
  • Compare and order three fractions using compound inequalities
  • Find the value of a fraction of a whole number
  • Find the fraction, or part, a given value is of a whole value
  • Add two fractions with the same denominator to get a sum up to one whole and fully decompose a given fraction
  • Add two fraction addends with the same denominator to get a sum greater than one whole
  • Add multiple fraction addends to find sums greater than one whole and represent sums in improper form and mixed numbers
  • Add two fraction addends with different denominators (only having to scale one of the addends)
  • Add three fraction addends with different denominators (only having to scale two of the addends)
  • Add two fractions addends with different denominators (having to scale all addends to find a common denominator)
