**Please note this is my second post today. I also posted how to make your own spindle boxes.
A few months ago I discussed Knobbed Cylinders at a post you can view by clicking here. I usually try to make most of my own Montessori materials to save money, but there are just some tools that can’t be reproduced and need to be purchased. One of these items are the Knobbed Cylinders.
I looked at just about every store out there and even posted on Montessori bulletin boards, trying to find the best deal out there. Finally, I decided to try an ebay seller by the name of Brainy Bambini.
I am happy to report that I am extremely satisfied with my order from this seller. I went with the smaller version of the Knobbed Cylinders, since you get more for your buck. I’ve looked online and haven’t found any reason to choose full size over the smaller version. My order came with FOUR blocks, 5 cylinders each. Here are the details-
Block 1: The cylinders increase in diameter and height.
Block 2: The cylinders increase in diameter. The height remains the same.
Block 3: The cylinders increase in diameter and decrease in height.
Block 4: The cylinders decrease in height and diameter remains the same.
I was able to purchase these for $20 and with a $15 shipping price. I haven’t been compensated or offered any kind of deal from this seller. I was just so happy with this purchase that I wanted to post about it so everyone else can know that there is a good deal for Knobbed Cylinders out there. For comparison, look at some other prices for Knobbed Cylinders-
Montessori N Such: $170.00
and so on…..
These blocks are beautiful, well made, fit perfectly, shipping was quick. I’m so happy that I found this deal! We’ve had them for a few months now but keep forgetting to post about these. Zhana loves this activity.
