These counting pegs have improved retention in my kids. They are so versatile and absolutely gorgeous. We have so many more ways to play with them! Math is so much fun now.


Well made and AWESOME tool for emerging readers (especially kinesthetic learners). I love that the spin letters can be used with or without the cards.

The ten frames counting pegs by Little Bud Kids is amazing quality and we are so pleased with the product. For our 3 year old, being able to use multi-sensory tools for early math makes it fun and engaging for him. We have a lot of math manipulatives but this set is our favourite by far!

Stacey K.

Great fun for our four year old - appreciate the thoughtfulness in design and packaging so we can take it in the car on a road trip!


These are so great. They spin easily, are clearly very well made, hold up to the abuse my crazy kid subjects them to amazingly well, and are excellent learning tools. The included cards with words and pictures are also great. My kid whips through them, making the wood spinners match the words, but the backside has just the pictures without the words for when he’s ready to take that next step. These are complete learning tools for cvc learning and I’m completely satisfied with them. Strong recommend.

My favourite reading toy! My (then) 3yo uses it to practice his CVC spelling, match the words to the flashcards and read aloud. It also helps strengthen my 2yo's fine motor skills.
