- Dado is Special...and Spatial! Dado is a Favorite Toy of Children...a Favorite Tool of Professionals Employed by Occupational Therapists: "Dado helps children improve fine motor skills, including hand strength, finger dexterity, and coordination of small muscle movements. With mastery of the movements required to fit the cubes together, children take obvious pride in their creative constructions. Psychosocially, children develop skills as they share ideas and talk about their play goal."Elizabeth Paskar, Occupational Therapist, Missouri Endorsed by Classroom Teachers: "The open-ended nature of Dado Cubes, their unique groove-connecting assembly, and the challenge of achieving the highly desired perfect balance draw children in. As my students are busy building, talking through their plans, and making adjustments, I am amazed by their critical thinking and problem solving skills."Stacy Coulter, Kindergarten Educator, Kansas Valuable in Ongoing Visual Spatial Research: "In my work with visual-spatial children in various corners of the world, I have found that one distinguishing feature is their ability to visualize in multiple dimensions. Many visual-spatial learners speak of 4- and 5-dimensional mental images! Dado Cubes would offer these individuals, young and old, a hands-on way of demonstrating what their incredible minds are able to see and create. For children who lack such ability, this wonderful new toy may help them to expand their understanding of dimensionality, viewing their world from a unique perspective!"

I saw this product on a list of award winning toys.... I’m wondering if the products on that list were tested by kids because mine were not impressed.... cool concept but hard to use, don’t fit together nice, and way way over priced.... wish I skipped this one... it was a flop.
