Mame Ohagki means "bean" in Japanese. This is a set of wooden beans with a small bowl and chopsticks. They can be used like building blocks by piling them up, lining them up (side by side), or arranging them by color. A good way to practice using chopsticks and great for dexterity and finger training to help children build up the muscles they need for writing. The beans can be used to teach children how to count, simple addition, subtraction, and division.
