We thought we would clarify our position on how and where we sell our products. We do not sell our books and Cuisenaire® Rods via any other website apart from our own. We do supply wholesalers who may use third party sites.

If you want to buy genuine products from the original Cuisenaire® Company founded in 1954 -formally known as Educational Solutions (UK) Ltd since the 1970s - this website is the only place you can do that with confidence.
