You can also make your own. Just buy foam or cardboard from Popular.

saw it at the Book Fair, but it is not 1 round whole. It's made up of rectangular blocks.

also saw one kiddy Pizza set at September 21@Braddell Tech selling ed materials (mainly for preschoolers).

Think too elementary for R junior :)

Make it yourself, or order from China thru alibaba?

This was "our" project last year.
Great learnings, even though the finishings aren't great.
It taught DS how to draw a circle using a compass, using Protractor, a sense of angles and lot of circle concepts besides the cutting and painting And most importantly planning - how best to use the circles to get a variety of slices aka optimization.

That's an interesting suggestion. Unfortunately, both my work and my ds' studies meant that I've to pay to buy time. :cry:
