    Abstract

    We present building blocks equipped with electronics for educational purposes. The blocks have changeable colors, a simple LED screen, and a mechanism for decentralized communication between blocks that touch each other. Using these simple elements, we introduced functionality to implicitly support the development of prenumerical skills of preschool children without detracting from the primary value of the toys: building towers and structures of blocks.
