The exact origin of the Abacus counting frame remains unknown, however what we do know is that children love moving the beads around. Whilst it may be too early for them to be counting anything (or maybe not!) they will be activating the muscles in their fingers and developing their pincer grip.
The colourful wooden beads give provide a satisfying noise creating a sensory experience for children.
