What is it
Explore and measure with this five-in-one tool!
This versatile tool is the perfect way to introduce the concept of measurement to young learners in an outdoor setting.
The brightly coloured Measure-Mate™ is perfect for non-standard measuring or the introduction of standard units. Its robust build means it will cope with vigorous use in rough terrain and all components fit into a handy mesh bag.
Enhance the fun and customise the Measure-mate with whimsical stickers
Young learners can have fun exploring and measuring the natural landscape using five different tools:
Vertical measure – to measure freestanding objects
Callipers – to measure internal and external dimensions of an object
Trundle wheel – to measure distances
Spirit level – to discover whether a surface is level (horizontal) or plumb (vertical)
Measuring stick – to be used as a ruler

What our experts think
The 5-in-1 Measure Mate is a great tool for introducing children to the concept of measurement and for showing them it’s not just distance that can be measured. It was used to its full potential once an adult showed our testers how to use it. It is easy for children to take apart to use each element and then put back together again.
Our testers enjoyed being given tasks to complete using the measure, as this helped to develop their knowledge as they worked out the answers. We liked the idea of the spirit level but did find that this wasn’t used as much as the other features.
