LINES [Gift 8S + 8R]

The lines, both straight and curved, represent the edges of the solid Gifts. Because Froebel himself did not classify the all materials he used as Gifts, the numbering schemes that developed after his death have added confusion as to how many Gifts there are and what number each has. The series of solids need numbers to identify them as easily as possible. Starting with Gifts 7, these materials can be referred to as tablets, sticks, rings, points, and framework.
