In the game, the kid learns the basic range of colors and gets acquainted with geometric shapes. The set includes 16 molds with recesses in the middle, in the form of a square, oval, circle, rectangle, rhombus or triangle. Each form has its own figure. The task of the kid is to place geometric shapes in the holes of the boards. In this case, you need to observe the color scheme.

Educational game Squares Nikitin is a kind of puzzle of geometric shapes. There are 6 square holes on the playing field, each of which consists of several parts — triangles, rectangles, trapezoids, etc. The child needs to collect whole squares from small parts. There is only one correct arrangement possible.
The benefits of the game lies in the development of tactile functions, visual and color perception, logical and spatial thinking. The kid learns the basics of geometry — studies the shapes and their properties, remembers the differences and features.
