The Lauri Action Stackers - Big Builder Set includes 75 Tall-Stackers Pegs, six wheels, five hexagonal connectors, 30 square connectors, eight crepe rubber tower mats, and an 11.5-inch square crepe rubber peg board with 100 holes. The cleverly designed connectors invite building from all angles. Children can use the peg boards as bases for stationary creations or use the wheels to add motion to structures and/or movement to vehicles.

Designing and building creations with the set is an entertaining and engaging way of developing and honing a wide-range of critical skills including fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, spatial awareness, problem-solving, and patience. The set can be used by multiple children and by children of differing ages and ability levels. Its open-ended play also offers endless opportunities for trial-and-error learning.
