Irregular shapes to enable more complex pictures to be made, and to encourage a rich diversity of language such as wave, zigzag, arch, bridge etc
Plain mirror for children to build patterns, and see the effects of reflective symmetry
Coloured & clear blocks so children can see the world in a different hue, overlay them to mix new colour combinations. Use them on a light panel
