123 BALANCE teaches children the mathematical concept of weight and balance while cultivating their reasoning abilities and problem-solving skills. Adding and combining various lever arms with three types of blocks (in different multiples of weight) produces multiple ways to play. The shape of the bricks is designed to be stacked quickly and intuitively. If the blocks on both sides weigh the same, the upper and lower pointers align, and the game produces a sound to provoke a sense of accomplishment. There are three different ways to play based on a child's development stage. To play, choose a quiz first at the appropriate level from the accompanying quiz book and arrange the bricks according to the instructions. Then, start balancing both sides until they reach equal weight. Turn to the next page for an answer key. A QR code when scanned reveals more solutions. A departure from traditional education that requires 'cramming', 123 BALANCE encourages a child to explore as many solutions as possible.
