What It Is
Learning about numbers and math can be engaging and fun with the NumbersAlive! program, created by Dr. Rebecca Klemm, aka The Numbers Lady. The program's mission is to improve global numerical literacy by instilling a joy of numbers through fun and friendly number characters, called Team Ten. Team Ten, led by Zero the Hero, accompanies The Numbers Lady and children on education quests. They discover numerical applications and develop concepts of the scientific method. The NumbersAlive! program includes educational toys, books, and out-of-school activities and programming.
The Team Ten characters come to life through a variety of stuffed toys, including Poseable Numbers. Each soft, ten-inch number can stand up on its own and has flexible arms. The numbers also come with a special hangtag that tells kids more about each one's personality. Each of the ten numbers (0-9) is sold separately.
Why It’s Fun
Kids will enjoy hugging and playing with their soft number friends. Parents can use the Poseable Numbers to engage kids in a conversation about how they find numbers in everyday life and basic math.
Who It’s For
The Team Ten Poseable Numbers are for ages 3 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The Poseable Numbers are available at NumbersAlive.org. You can purchase all ten numbers together for $150.
The Poseable Numbers are machine washable. Let them air dry.
