Introducing the New SumBlox Minis. Our Original SumBlox concept is now available in miniature. 50% smaller but 40% more blocks!
Learning through play at its best! Never before has this sentence been more accurate than here. The SumBlox Building Blocks Mini set from Oskar's Wooden Ark teaches kids mathematics as they play. The higher the number, the taller the block. No matter how you stack them, if the numbers add up, the heights will match.
SumBlox Minis are a multi-sensory maths tool that allows students to visualise the value of numbers through height, making primary maths concepts (addition to fractions) significantly easier to understand and remember. These blocks are made from high quality, solid hardwood and come with lessons and activities that teach through games. It works for Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication, Fractions, adding Fractions and some teachers are even teaching Year 6 Algebra.
SumBlox Minis allow kids to explore and discover maths on their own terms through an engaging hands-on play activity that they already enjoy – playing with blocks.
SumBlox Minis are a math manipulative, building block set, and a discovery toy for any child to naturally learn mathematics and its properties through play.
SumBlox minis can be played with in many ways, foster many skills sets and can be used for learning activities even before a child understands the concept of numbers and their value. Click here for play and learn activity ideas for children of different ages.

At SumBlox we believe learning should be fun, and games should be challenging and interactive. That's why we worked hard developing an extensive learning support system to support you and your children or students, so that you can get the most out of your time playing with our blocks.
The best teaching methods can vary depending on the teacher and the students, but we believe there is no single 'silver bullet' to solve all educational hurdles. Whether the learning environment is 'teacher-centred' or 'student-centred', if the methods are considered high or low tech, the goal is the same. These activities are designed to develop academic knowledge through a series of games and challenges, that can be enjoyed by educators and students a-like.
