This set is engraved with dots for counting (0-10). Use our dot cuboids as a standalone toy or in combination with other versatile cuboids collections to support early years numeracy development.

Dot cuboids combine well with counters for fun supervised activities with older children and we can supply felt balls and tongs for this purpose (sold separately).

Q: Did you hear what happened to the farmer who counted their cows?
A: The farmer counted 27, but after they were rounded up there were 30.

Ideal for gifting, this set comes with a luxury cotton storage bag. 

Materials and usage 

Each piece is handcrafted and finished using eco-friendly, vegan-friendly, sustainable and locally sourced materials. The set is varnished to provide a hardwearing and wipeable finish that is VOC, solvent and BPA-free (gentle to the environment and little hands). 
 
Independently CE tested and certified safe from birth. 
 
We recommend these toys from when children can sit unaided. 
 
Please note that optional felt balls (sold separately) are not vegan-friendly (they are hand made from natural merino wool in Nepal). We advise against felt balls being handled by very young children. They can be used as counters in supervised activities with older children, however they are not CE certified as a toy and must not be used as such. Similarly, optional tongs (sold separately) are not a toy and must not be used as such.

Dimensions and features 

Set contains 11 pieces 
Cuboid size: 70 x 60 x 18mm 
 
While the dimensions are exact, each piece has its own distinctive character that sets it apart from a mass-manufactured children’s toy. Unique characteristics such as differences in wood grain are a hallmark of our handcrafted and small batch production processes. Colour batches may also vary across time. To achieve colour matching between multiple sets we recommend that these are purchased concomitantly.

Description

Handcrafted by Dr Hellion

All toys are designed and crafted by me, Dr Hellion. Join me on Instagram for a look behind the scenes at Hellion HQ in the Forest of Bowland where I bring our high quality, durable and eco-friendly collections to life. When I’m not cutting, engraving or sanding wood I’m busy hand-finishing each toy. I dye, paint and varnish my creations with great care to make sure they are ready to leave the workshop and begin their adventures in the world.

Uniquely yours

Part of what makes your Hellion collection so special is that no two toys are exactly alike – you are buying a one-off, handcrafted item. Unlike mass-manufactured toys, mine will have subtle variations from one piece to the next. The wood will have different grain, knots and natural markings. It will absorb paint, varnish and dyes differently as a result. You may also see brushstrokes, uneven lines and elements that add to the character of each piece.

Gentle to the environment

I aim to keep a low carbon footprint by sourcing materials locally from other independent businesses, typically within 20 miles of my workshop. I also avoid petroleum-derived paints, finishes and plastics of any kind. My collections are plastic-free, solvent-free, VOCs-free, BPA-free and vegan-friendly. I hope that you will cherish these toys and pass them down to be loved by the next generation. To protect each piece, a special eco finish is applied that will continue to harden naturally over several weeks.

Made in Britain

I take my role and responsibilities within the heritage craft of British toymaking seriously. I am a member of the Heritage Craft Association as well as the British Toymakers Guild who uphold the very highest standards of craftsmanship and design. My toys are independently lab safety tested and certified CE. Hellion Toys is a member of the trade organisation ACID (Anti Copying in Design) and our designs are supported by ACID through their IP Databank and Marketplace.
