Kinesthetic Learning Tools

After learning about Siftables by way David Merrill's recent presentation at TED, I find myself wondering why educators and others have created so few kinesthetic learning tools.

Once students get beyond the primary grades, the learning tools we employ most predominantly, are pen, paper and keyboard. Maybe Siftables will lead us to rethink the tools we use to reach learners that prefer modalities beyond reading and writing?
