Composition: 2 birch wood boxes, one with a red lid and the other with a blue lid. Each contains a set of 6 cylinders with lids of the same colour. The content of each set of cylinders differs in size so when you shake the cylinders they produce different sounds. The blue and red sets are the same so that pairs can be made. The boxes and the cylinders are high artisan quality and made in Italy. The finishing is UNI EN 71-3.
0-3 SOUND CYLINDERS WITH BOX
Working with this material sharpens the hearing sense developing the capacity to recognise the sounds of the objects without looking at them (this can also be done blindfolded). Like for many other Montessori materials used by very small children it helps to develop concentration, willpower, intelligence and a sharper observation of the surrounding.
