Want to know more about Play Cubes

Play cubes entertain with several fun activities

Cubes for kids are part of day care and playroom furnishings that cater to growing minds and bodies. They come in theme-based designs that visually attract children with realistic artwork from sea worlds to outer space. The top and side panels have different activities to keep young people engaged for hours. Most play cubes for kids have a rollercoaster bead maze, in which they slide more than a dozen differently shaped beads along colorful wires.

Panel activities include games in which kids use magnetic wands to guide balls through theme-based mazes, as well as pathfinder actions where young people move colorful, hand-painted pieces along preset paths. Specialized panels include knobbed rods that move along slotted horizontal, vertical, and diagonal zigzag paths and games in which children turn rows of cylinders to match traffic signs with each other. The cubes also offer spinning alphabet blocks, counting abacuses, and rotating interlocking gears, as well as theme-based spinning wheels and tic-tac-toe.

Some of the skills they impart

The cubes are an important group of children’s games, puzzles, and toys targeted at the intellectual and motor skills development of those from 3 to 5 years old. Some of the developmental features of the games include:

  • Bead mazes that encourage shape recognition and improve fine motor skills
  • Magnetic express panels that develop sensorimotor skills and dexterity
  • Pathfinder games that improve logical thinking, visual tracking, and hand-eye coordination
  • Traffic memory panels that sharpen visual recognition and enhance recall

Other activities provide groundwork in arithmetic and the alphabet, color and pattern recognition, and cooperative play.

Dimensions and weight of play cubes for kids

Cubes are heavy enough so youngsters can’t topple them, but lightweight enough for adults to easily maneuver them. They come in age-appropriate 13, 36, 60, and 68-pound weights. Play cubes for school consist of 2-foot squares, so users have command over each activity area. They’re around 45 inches in height, allowing children to stand and play with the top panels while sitting on chairs or the floor to play with side panels.

Play cubes for health care waiting rooms

Doctor and dentist offices always have ample art and crafts supplies to keep young people occupied while waiting for appointments. Waiting room play cubes are ideal accompaniments, since they are self-contained with no small pieces, and they’re stimulating enough so that kids aren’t thinking about their upcoming exams or procedures.
