Speaking about toys, I did not mention the board. The board must holds the counting tokens in place, providing spatial organization. If a line of tokens gets out of hands, we can cut it and place the pieces on the board side by side.
I am using so-called Lauri's boards and pegs, just because I couldn't find anything better yet. A line of 74 Lauri's pegs will be approximately 7'2" long - that's longer than most household tables.
The board provides an opportunity to play with the quantities up to one hundred and learn the respective counting words.
