    Default whats it called?

    I have a 'want' on my resource wish list which is proving impossible to find because I dont know what to search for!!

    What Im looking for are those things that all of us had back in the 80s - rectangular frames filled with lots and lots of metal 'nails' that you put your hand in to make a 3d 'sculpture'. I think they would be great for lots of exploratory play - just need to find them!!!

    thanks everyone

    I still have one from the 80's!
    Under supervision the 4 year olds love it, like you say Mouse - just fun and early 3D play.
    It still sits on the window sill of our guest bedroom and everyone who stays there I notice, leaves a print - so still entertaining grown ups too!

    Thankyou !
    working a lot on number recognition at the minute and am convinced that they will love doing number art using it - but it will be equally good alongside all the natural resources / animals ....whatever they choose! Think I need about 4 ..and now I know what theyre called I can shop around.
