Unfortunately these scales will be returned as not suitable. You would expect to put 2 bears of the same size at each end and for the scales to balance - but they dont - so this means that discussing heavier/lighter concepts at nursery is very difficult. The area for putting the bears on is also very small and slippy so putting a bear on has to be done carefully to stop it falling off - and children dont tend to put things down carefully!

The children loved this, though it was difficult for them to see the difference in size between Mummy and Daddy or Mummy and baby bears, so I took the Mummy bears out. Also the bears slip off. I've smeared some candle wax on the balance which helps.

Great resource to help with weighing for younger children. Good also to use to practise number bonds and more/less activities. Its great to have the counting bears included, which allow you to teach a wide range of activities. The balance scales are good quality and fit together easily. A lovely product to help children understand the initial concept of weight

Good fun, educational and can, of course, weigh any toys within reason. We got it with the measuring worms and together they are balancing stuff but also rescuing the teddies from the killer see saw.

I purched this and the set of weighing bears for my 2 year old who loves using my scales. He loves it! He weighs the bears and trys to get the scales to balance, lines up the bears, sorts them into colours and puts them into families. So many ways to play! He can now count to 20 perfectly after playing with these.

This is a very basic balance and is a fine introduction for youngsters to balancing different weights and sorting colours.

My granddaughter really liked this and quickly grasped the concept of making the scales balance. She is beginning to understand that you can use other items to also make the scales balance.
