It is a well-known fact that children learn best through play. And what could be more fun than playing with toys that help them learn math? Here are seven of the best math toys in Singapore for children of all ages, so you can help your child have some educational fun!

1. Number line

This is a great toy for children of all ages because it allows them to create a number line showing the order of numbers, as well as helping them learn how to count and read a number line.  Children can start with smaller numbers at the bottom of the ladder and follow the rungs up as they count along until they reach ten. Then they can move on to larger numbers and repeat.  It’s also helpful in teaching counting backward from larger numbers as well as adding simple sums together using their fingers or other objects as counters.

2. Clock

A clock may seem like an unusual math toy, but this one comes with so many fun activities inside that will keep little mathematicians busy for hours!  There are 12 clock face cards (featuring traditional and digital clocks), dominoes with corresponding numbers that can be used to tell time, large dice for playing games like “Snakes and Ladders” or “Clocks and Chaos,” a spinner featuring the hands of a clock, and several counting books.  This toy is so useful for teaching children their times tables and how to read an analog clock!

3. Tangrams

Tangrams came around more than 2,500 years ago in China as puzzles, but they have been brought back into fashion as educational toys in Singapore because of their wonderful ability to teach geometry skills such as shapes, patterns, symmetry – as well as problem-solving skills such as fitting objects together just right.  Children will have fun using the tangrams to build pictures of dogs, birds, fish, cars, and many other subjects.  The only limit is their imagination!

4. Geoboards

Geoboards are great educational toys in Singapore for teaching geometry because they help children create shapes like squares and triangles, as well as find interesting new ways to arrange them.  They can also be used in geography lessons because geoboards’ grids function like maps; children can use them to find directions by moving figures around on the grid or writing place names over each point on the map (such as “home,” “school,” “the store,” etc.)  With all these functions – plus more – you’d be hard-pressed to find a math toy at the same caliber as geoboards!

5. Cash register

Cash registers are one of the most popular math toys in Singapore for their ability to teach children important skills at an early age including counting money, colors, simple addition, and subtraction problems, coin identification, fractions (for weighing items), mental math skills (counting out change), measuring quantities (with units of weight or length stored inside some cash registers) – not to mention more advanced concepts like multiplication!  This is definitely one of the top ten best math toys for children under 12.

6. Ice cube tray clocks

Ice cube trays can be used for more than just making ice cubes; they can also be used as tools to teach time management.  Each ice cube tray has a clock face on it, so children can fill each section with water and wait for the water to freeze.  Then they can use markers to color in the corresponding numbers and even add hands (with toothpicks) if they want their clocks to look like regular analog clocks.  Once you’re done making all your ice cubes, be sure that you put them into the freezer before they melt, or else you’ll end up with a messy pile of puddles instead!

7. Dice games

Dice games are not only fun, but they also help children practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, division – anything involving numbers really!  For example: 1 + 1 = 2; 5 x 2 = 10; 10 ÷ 2 = 5.  There are tons of different dice games to choose from, so you’re sure to find something that not only your child will like, but also help her learn important math skills.

Wrap Up: The best math toys in Singapore for children are not always the most expensive. They can be simple and inexpensive, like an ice cube tray clock or a dice game that teaches addition. A number line is also fairly easy to create with some tape on the ground or floor in your home, which will make it easier for kids to learn their numbers when they’re ready. Keep these seven fun toy ideas in mind next time you think about what would work well at your house! Which of these did you find interesting?
