Colorful, durable, appealing, and smart. This puzzle starts simply but contains something for all ages.

The youngest ones will enjoy putting the shapes in their holes, stacking them to build towers, and using them for pretend play—perhaps your hexagons will become beaks, cookies, or vehicles.

Older children and adults will enjoy tracing to make patterns, new shapes, and elaborate tilings of the plane.

The back of the puzzle helps parents and other caregivers feel confident about the geometry in these hexagons, and it contains a QR code for subscribing to a 4-issue newsletter with ideas for extending the play, the creativity, and of course the math.

Notes from play testing:

I love [my 3 year old’s] innate desire for patterning and seeing how he thinks about the shapes. I prompted about tiling and he traced some of the shapes on paper. This led to great artwork, and likely some mathematical insight.

-Anne (mother of a 3-year-old)

My 3-year-old loved it! She spent much longer playing with it than I imagined. She wanted to stack them, place them next to their homes. We played with how different orientations could have them fit in other places.

-Zak (father of a 3-year-old)

I was surprised at how often they came back to them when they were left out on the table. The bright colors really appealed to them. Once we used them to trace out new shapes, it created a new set of adventures that re-engaged them.

-Juan (father of a 4-year-old)

It has been played with everyday since it arrived. The pieces are strong, the paint has not chipped, the colors are vibrant. Seems to be a 10/10.

-Stacy (grandmother of a 2-year-old)
