Question
Does this set come with a grid surface? If not, is this an important part of Froebel's technique that I should try to aquire or create?

Response From Red Hen Books & Toys
Yes, the lids for Gifts 7, 8S, and 8R all have 8x8 one-inch grids silk-screened on the underside of the slide-top box lids. The grid is an important aspect that Froebel brought to his system, but it is not required or essential for play and learning. It's just another layer of information to explore when the child is ready. And in doing so you won't want to be limited to only the supplied grids, but integrate other tools (graph paper, etc.).
