Kontu STEM Blocks are magnetic wooden blocks and cards designed to encourage STEM thinking (science, technology, engineering, and math) in early childhood. Preschool-aged children have an innate ability and desire to learn math. By cementing positive early math knowledge in their minds by age five, children build a positive disposition towards mathematics that will help them attain their full academic potential later in life. Kontu STEM Blocks consist of a modular manipulative system that allow children across a wide range of ages and skill levels to explore STEM concepts in a playful way. 

The clever design of Kontu STEM Blocks provide children with a learning kit that can be used for exploring, discovering and comprehending mathematical theories, magnetism, building, spatial awareness and many other scientific concepts. The shape of the frames and integrated magnetic blocks invite children to use their imagination and creativity whilst expanding their knowledge and playing with this open-ended toy and learning tool.

Playful STEM Exploration:
Explore magnetism, early mathematics, weight & counterbalance, joints & hinges, construction, and other STEM concepts.

Kontu STEM Blocks grow with your child:
As your child grows, you can introduce new learnings appropriate for their development. And of course, you can always add more blocks!

Constructive Play:
The blocks are great for building simple structures. Kontu STEM Blocks plays well with others including both magnetic and non-magnetic blocks. Your child will also develop spatial reasoning while building both orthogonal and organic structures.

Made from wood - not plastic:
Made in Thailand from sustainably-harvested rubber tree wood and rare earth magnets and is meant to last for generations. 

Sustainably Sourced:
Rubber trees grown on plantations are harvested once they stop producing latex sap and new trees are planted to replace them.

Patrick Greenwood, the founder of Kontu began his inspiring journey shortly after the birth of his daughter when he wasn’t able to find any engaging math tools for younger children. His curiosity then led him to research about the brain development in children and the introduction of mathematical concepts to children before they start primary school and from these concepts, he invented Kontu. Kontu STEM blocks have been safety tested according to AS/NZS 8124 (AUS/NZ).
