The cubeoctahedron is a well known solid with 8 equilateral triangular faces and 6 square faces all with equal length sides. They can be used to interconnect other polyhedrons with triangular or square sides. Our cubeoctahedron •Blocks (dot blocks) come 2 per order along with 2 magnet connectors. The cubeoctahedrons come ASSEMBLED or in KIT form. For the KIT form we recommend using a building mold pair to help construct the otherwise unstable cubeoctahedron. You have a choice of unfinished or 4 different wood finishes, Dark Walnut, Cherry, Chocolate and Au Natural. The kits include 16 triangles and 12 squares, each with a magnetic receptor already glued in place. Water based glue can be used to assemble the kits. Because of the magnets, our •Blocks are only recommended for individuals 8 and older. The magnets should be kept away from children who might swallow them.
CONTENTS OF EACH PACKAGE: 2 cubeoctahedrons and 2 magnet connectors.
DETAILS: Triangles and squares are 29 mm (~1.2 inches) along each side. Magnets are 1/4 inch diameter cylinders 1/4 inch long.
