This is a collection of the 5 plutonic solids that make up our entire universe. Other shapes can be made by altering and joining each of these solids, but these are the basic 5 convex polyhedra
The Tetrahedron has 4 triangular faces, 4 points and 6 edges.
The cube or Hexahedron has 6 square faces, 8 corners, and 12 edges.
The Octahedron has 8 triangular faces, 6 points, and 12 edges.
The Dodecahedron has 12 pentagonal sides, 20 points, and 30 edges
The Icosahedron has 20 triangular faces. 12 points, and 30 edges.
The next group of solids I'm going to attempt are called Archimedean solids. There are 13 of them, and they are a lot more complicated since they are made by stellateing, expanding or joining one or more plutonic solids together!
