The Oombee is an innovative shape-sorting cube, which has six vibrantly colored and textured shapes tethered at its corners. No pieces to lose or to step on. The cube and its shapes (oval, square, pentagon, triangle, circle, and bean) are made from 100% food-grade, BPA-free, durable silicone, perfect for young children whose tendency is to explore the world with their mouths. Each shape fits smoothly yet firmly into its respective opening; the self-correcting nature of the product requires minimal adult assistance beyond possible modeling of the task. This deceptively simple toy teaches and hones a wide variety of concepts and developmental skills including shapes, colors, visual discrimination, sorting, visual-spatial awareness, sensory learning, tactile exploration, and fine motor skills.
