For the beginner mathematician.
Master number sense and learn counting, addition, subtraction, & place value with this tactile number toy set.
AGE RANGE: 3 - 7
MULTI-AGE MATH SKILLS:
- Use it as a number puzzle: Toddlers learn counting & number correspondence.
- Use it as an addition tool & math material: Children in preschool, early elementary, primary school will be able to understand the concept of number parts & wholes and practice this up to number 20. They will progress from seeing addition as being an abstract idea to concretely adding & subtracting on their own using the ten-frame number panels.
MULTI-SENSORY NUMBER EXPLORATION: Our "ten-frame" panels helps children learn how to compose & decompose numbers in relation to 5 & 10. The wooden pegs and movable number pieces reinforce number concepts and provides a visual and tactile framework to see, feel, and understand the math behind the toy.
REINFORCE MATH FACTS: Our addition & subtraction flashcard set helps children test their number sense and provides opportunities to review the concepts they are learning.
- 10 number panels
- 59 odd & even-designated matching pegs (cylinders for odd and cuboids for even)
- Matching number tiles 1-20
- + - = tiles

Our Counting Pegs math set is inspired by the Montessori philosophy that toys & material should be multi-sensory, self-corrective, and natural. This math toy helps establish a strong numerical foundation by emphasizing visual recognition of number value.
Allowing children to build upon their learning in logical, connected stages makes learning more fun & exciting.

WHAT IS TEN-FRAME MATH?
Our number toy is based off the design of the ten-frame model. A Ten Frame is typically used in math for 4-7 year olds - kindergarten, 1st grade, and up.
Ten Frames help children visualize number values. It is a graphic tool constructed by a rectangle made up of 2 rows of 5 squares. Ten Frames help give meaning to numbers as children learn how to compose & decompose numbers in relation to 5 & 10.
Ten frames develop the skill of subitizing(the ability to identify a number value by visually recognizing it as a whole instead of counting). For example, we subitize when we can recognize the numbers on a die without needing to count each individual dot.
Subitizing is the pre-requisite for addition. The holes on our Counting Pegs number panels are arranged in a controlled ten frame design. Once your child is able to correctly "subitize" the value of each board, they can then move on to addition, etc...
Move Them, Hold Them.
Customize your learning experience.
The cut-out rectangles on each of our panels provide flexibility in learning. This area can hold different types of math counters. Use the original wooden number tiles alone or any object that can fit for your double-counting (pebbles, beans, pom poms, beads, cereal, etc...).
For younger learners still working on number correspondence, the number tile can be matched with the panel first before the child pegs.
Thereafter, number pieces can be used by themselves, mixed & matched, and in any way that fosters critical ordering skills.
From our customers
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!
These are SO well made! The ring comes with it to hold the cards together too. Everything is just so nice and sturdy, including the cards. I 100% would buy again. Also bought the spin and read blocks and they're also exceptional quality.
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. Thanks so much for sharing our journey with your customers.
I think the workmanship and materials are very good. Adding the drawstring bag is a great idea. You seem to cover all aspects, in a very thorough and professional manner. I also appreciate how easy it is to communicate with you and your prompt responses. I give you a grade of A+. Kudos to you and your staff.
Bring on the math counters!
