Price: $150.00
Review:

Although we're not prepared to launch into a debate about the allowed number of parallel sides in a trapezoid, we can safely quote Wikipedia (just this once). "In Euclidean geometry, a convex quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides is referred to as a trapezoid in American English and as a trapezium in English outside North America."

This heirloom quality set includes 84 pieces in 6 different colors of five geometrical shapes that can combine to create patterns, design, structures, or pathways. Putting all the pieces back in the tray is the changing puzzle that adds extra play value to this creative mathematical toy.
