Wee Wedgits is a five-piece stacking toy. The pieces are solid colors and made out of a soft, lightweight poly-vinyl. Three of the pieces have an opening in the center making it easier for a child to grasp.
Wee Wedgits are exploration and discovery driven allowing kids to build confidence while learning.
The stacking set can be used to hone social skills, sharing and turn taking.
The child can use the Wee Wedgits to pretend play, which promotes social awareness of self and others.
Wee Wedgits are easy to "take along" for travel. The stacking set comes with a clear case for portability.
The stacking set does not need all of the Wedgits for exploratory play if a caregiver wants to limit the amount of pieces to keep track of.
Additional Wedgits can be combined to advance play and build upon creativity and exploration.
