Save vs. Splurge: IKEA vs. Melissa and Doug Abacus
We own the IKEA Mula Abacus at our house. It is cheap ($9.99), well made, and my kids have fun with it. We do some counting and I can tell there is passive recognition of colors and patterns while playing, but I was surprised to see a Melissa & Doug Wooden Abacus with a similar look for a price about 30% higher. Do you own an abacus at home?
