Forms on pegs is a montessori recommended activity for kids around 10months and upwards. The game is a rectangular board with 4 pegs that can hold four different forms. Placing the objects on the pags is a challenging task for the infant. As the pegs seem to 'disappear' in the forms, the child realises that the centre hole in the forms disappears too and the shape becomes a whole. The activity also helps the infant understand colour coordination at a later point in its childhood.

Each piece has been pain stakingly hand-crafted by artisans from Channapatna using the traditional lacquer ware turning technique. The base wood used is neem wood while the coloured forms are made of wrightia tinctoria or 'aale mara' both of which are medicinal plants and hence completely safe for kids. Any irregularities on the wood are part of its natural beauty.
