Dado Cubes FB024-MC Original Spatial Multi-Colored Building Blocks

A multi-award winning toy that's made in America!

Dado Cubes provide a colorful sturdy combination of art and science as you and your child explore architectural principles including proportion, balance, structure and color. A new twist on classic building blocks, Dado engages imagination as slits on each cube are interlocked to create an unlimited number of three-dimensional structures. Constructed horizontally, vertically or nested together, Dado invites visual spatial development and problem solving through design-centered, attention-grabbing fun! Set features 10 cubes, capable of building structures over 32 inches high! You might also be interested in the Dado Cubes Building Blocks in Blue Scale which are the same as the original multi-colored set except the blocks are colored in a range of different blues and the Dado Squares Multi-colored Set.

A deceptively ingenious system of interlocking cubes, in a range of sizes, Dado offers millions of combinations and problem solving opportunities. Dado Cubes solidly supports the latest research in the importance of the relatively new field of visual-spatial learning.

Children with profuse visual-spatial intelligence develop a keen eye for form, design, color, size, shape, and space. They also possess the uncanny ability to identify patterns and connect seemingly unrelated concepts.

Features of the Dado Cubes set:

  • Each set features 10 cubes, scaled from 1" to 5"
  • Durable, heavy gauge plastic construction
  • Developed, manufactured, and assembled right here in the U.S.A.

Dado is Special...and Spatial!

Visual Spatial Learning has captured the attention of scientists and educators as being highly valuable in child development. Visual Spatial Play refers to the ability to mentally picture things and is characterized by the ability to appreciate patterns & form in very large or small areas of space. Children with profuse Visual Spatial Intelligence can construct three-dimensional mental images and visual them from multiple perspectives. A keen eye for form, design, color, size, shape and space enables these gifted children to create realistic representations of real world images.

Dado is Simple...Simple Design that Inspires Complex Thought
In Tom West's book, In the Mind's Eye, he suggests that in the 21st Century, strong visual skills will be crucial elements to success: "Ready recognition of larger patterns, intuition, a sense of proportion, imaginative vision, the original and unexpected approach, and the apt connection between apparently unrelated things...". Through Dado's simple shapes and intuitive system of construction, people of all ages find Dado engaging.

Dado is a Favorite Toy of Children...a Favorite Tool of Professionals

Employed by Occupational Therapists: "Dado helps children improve fine motor skills, including hand strength, finger dexterity and coordination of small muscle movements. With mastery of the movements required to fit the cubes together, children take obvious pride in their creative constructions. Psychosocially, children develop skills as they share ideas and talk about their play goal."
Elizabeth Paskar, Occupational Therapist, Missouri

Endorsed by Classroom Teachers: "The open-ended nature of Dado Cubes, their unique groove-connecting assembly, and the challenge of achieving the highly desired perfect balance draw children in. As my students are busy building, talking through their plans and making adjustments, I am amazed by their critical thinking and problem solving skills."
Stacy Coulter, Kindergarten Educator, Kansas

Valuable in Ongoing Visual Spatial Research: "In my work with visual-spatial children in various corners of the world, I have found that one distinguishing feature is their ability to visualize in multiple dimensions. Many visual-spatial learners speak of 4- and 5-dimensional mental images! Dado Cubes would offer these individuals, young and old, a hands-on way of demonstrating what their incredible minds are able to see and create. For children who lack such ability, this wonderful new toy may help them to expand their understanding of dimensionality, viewing their world from a unique perspective!"
Alexandra Shires Golon, Director, Visual-Spatial Resource
Author, Raising Topsy-Turvy Kids; If You Could See the Way I Think; The Visual-Spatial Classroom
