Our Bilingual Shape Blocks are made to support your child's learning of shapes in English and Te Reo Māori.  

Here are just a few ways our bilingual shapes can support learning:

  • Tactile learning - children can hold and feel the shape
  • Supporting in identifying shapes in the real world, eg: oval = egg. 
  • Learning shapes can help improve a child's descriptive phrases, eg: 'round biscuit’ or ‘square box’.
  • Older children can use the shapes for letter and word recognition.

Measurements (approx.): 

Size Range
  •  7cm - 12cm Length and Width, and approx. 1.8cm thick

  • Set includes 10 Shapes (circle/porowhita, square/tapawhā rite, star/whetū, oval/porohema, rectangle/tapawhā, diamond/taimana, octagon/tapawaru, pentagon/taparima, triangle/tapatoru, heart/manawa)
  • Wood = NZ untreated Macrocarpa
  • Finish options = Natural (unfinished as shown in picture) or Beeswax

If you would like a different te reo dialect on your shapes please email us before ordering. We'll do our best to make this possible for you, however, we cannot guarantee we'll be able to do it.

Crafted resources may have small imperfections. We do aim for consistency of lettering, but depth variations may occur. We think these just add character and uniqueness to each piece. Wood grain and colour pattern can vary from block to block. If you are a bit of a perfectionist, then this set may not be right for you.
