MathLink Cubes link together on all sides and come in 10 bright colours: blue, green, yellow, red, orange, black, purple, brown, pink, and white. Using MathLink Cubes helps children develop a rich understanding of early maths concepts including counting, subitising, sorting and grouping, patterning and sequencing, number bonds, early arithmetic (addition, subtraction, and multiplication), size ordering, and measurement.
This Mathlink Cubes Activity Set includes 15 colourful double-sided write-and-wipe Activity Cards with fun maths activities. The individual cubes measure 2cm square and are easy for little hands to click together and twist apart. When maths learning is done, MathLink Cubes double as fun building toys for creative play.

What our experts think
MathsLink cubes are a great way to boost children’s maths learning as they engage them in solving numeracy problems, recognising patterns and visualising shapes. They come with clear instructions and there’s lots of variety in the problems and ideas, meaning children can progress as they get older or increase their skills. Our testers found that the cubes were easy for small hands to fit together and pull apart.
The cubes are helpful for developing children’s understanding of numeracy, as they give them a hands-on way of learning, allowing them to visualise concepts such as addition or subtraction. Encouraging children to recognise and group patterns also helps them to develop the logical thinking skills required to begin to tackle more complex problems in maths.
