Two wooden boxes with sliding lids designed by Friedrich Froebel. The first building box (also known as the third Froebel gift) contains eight one inch beechwood cubes. The second building box (also known as the fourth Froebel gift) contains eight beechwood blocks, which are twice as long and half the thickness. Combine all 16 blocks to extend the possibilities for creative play.
This wooden box with a sliding lid (also known as the sixth Froebel Gift) contains 36 beechwood blocks. By dividing the building block in two different ways, two new shapes are introduced to extend creative play. 18 blocks 2 x 1 x .5 inches, 12 blocks 1 x 1 x .5 inches, 6 blocks 2 x .5 x 5 inches
The second building box is also known as the fourth Froebel Gift or Gabe 4.
Friedrich Froebel encouraged children to combine all 16 blocks to extend the possibilities for creative play. Kindergarten teachers designed additional building blocks by dividing oblong blocks in two different ways to create the sixth Froebel Gift or Gabe 6.
