Outstanding German quality.

I'm so glad I did my research, as this set of blocks is far far superior to any other set of blocks I have ever seen.

Simply put, these blocks are gorgeous. They are so well-crafted and lovely and come in such a wide variety of shapes and sizes. My husband and I even enjoy playing with my daughter, helping her to build towers and fantastical structures. She also likes to lay the flat blocks in a line and use them as roads for her cars, complete with the triangular blocks at the end for ramps.

Thanks to other reviewers who helped me choose this excellent set of blocks!
HABA makes high quality blocks which are pleasing to the eye and satin-smooth. The wood is strong and resists dents/dings. Each shape is designed to fit with the others to make attractive structures.
The shapes included in the Extra Large Starter Set are interesting enough to encourage children to play and build for hours. My husband and I cannot resist helping!
HABA blocks are well worth the price. I plan to purchase more HABA block sets to expand our construction horizons. What a great memory-making toy!

I purchased these blocks for my Daughters upcoming birthday so of course I had to open the box and have a look when they arrived.

The are so beautiful. You can feel the grain of the wood in the pieces. Some sides are a little more smooth than others, great to touch.

It is quite a big set but I plan on purchasing one more since I have 3 children who will want to play with them and I would like to minimize squabbling.

Overall I am VERY HAPPY with the purchase. When my kids are grown, their own children will play with these blocks, great grandchildren after that.

Something I always wish I could find with a purchase like this is a contents list. So I laid the blocks out and took a photo. I will try and attach it somehow.

***UPDATE***
Over 2 years later these are still pulled out and played with on a regular basis by my 3 children (5yrs, 7yrs, 9yrs). We've also added several of the other Haba block sets.

These are wonderful. Beautiful finish, gorgeous quality. Big sizes are easy to handle for little hands. Lots of interesting shapes and designs. My toddler like the "hat" the best. Made in Germany.

They aren't cheap but don't look like it either. This is an heirloom quality set that will last forever. I love that you can buying interesting expansion sets, colors, and the ball and track set. Worth the money.

The quality of the wood and the variety of the pieces is great, but I think that for the price that these cost, I expected slightly larger sized blocks. Also, I was a bit disappointed to find some nicks/dents on the edges of many of the long block pieces, and one long piece had one corner that was a bit cut off (seems the block was cut from an imperfect/incomplete piece of wood). I seriously considered sending it back and buying it again, but in the end did not have enough time as I was leaving for a trip. Would buy again but, again, for the price, expected higher quality control from Haba (am putting the responsibility on HABA, not the seller).

My 19 month old loves them from time to time and has learned a new word while playing with this toy--"tall!"

Edit: March 12, 2014 - Wow, I see the price jumped up from $114 to $160... not sure if it is worth THAT price, plus the $20 shipping... I did a quick search online and found other retailers selling this set for the original $114 price, so look elsewhere to buy this!

These blocks are awesome. They're heavy duty wood, perfectly cut, and a perfect mix of shapes and sizes of blocks. I was a little worried that some of the pieces were going to be the people and trees pictured on the box, but it was just the great building blocks. I got it for my 2 year old's birthday. He likes to knock over what I build. My 4 year old has enjoyed building with them. Highly recommend these.

There are unique shapes in this package that make playing with blocks more enjoyable and all are precision cut. This is our second order of these blocks because we have two boys and they needed more, To be honest they favor HABA and don't have any interest with their M and D blocks (which are also good) when given a choice.
