                My child got this for Christmas. He loves the feel of the beads on his hands. The bright colors are great and make it appealing to look at. I can't wait to use this when I homeschool him. This certainly helps make education more fun when you have a colorful manipulative!

                  My little girl was really into abacus's for about three months there, so she got two. This one from Melissa and Doug, and one from IKEA.  I bought this one because I thought, mistakenly, that it wasn't made in China.  Eh, wrong, its made in china, exactly like the one from IKEA.

                    We have had this abacus for 6 years. It is in perfect condition; very well made! I must say that it hasn't been played with a ton, but we have used it and it is very tough and well-made, like all M&D toys!

                      This is a great toy for little hands, as they can easily move thing back and forth. Also a great way to talk about colors.

                        We LOVE this abacus.  I got it last year on sale not knowing for sure if Dd would like it or not.  Win for me because she loves it!  This is her go to manipulative during math lessons, I have put a lot of different things in front of her to try to keep it interesting but she always goes back to this!
