Product Description

Product Description

Basic 40pc Block set (assorted sizes and colors). Award-winning ImagiBRICKS Giant Building Blocks are an enduring classic that offer endless play possibilities because they are versatile (build with them, jump over them, crash into them) and safe. Constructed of lightweight corrugated cardboard, if the blocks tumble, no one gets hurt! The blocks are printed with non-toxic inks and with their water-resistant coating are strong and durable for years of creative play. Because Imagibricks are b unit blocks , they can even be used to teach basic math skills. The blocks come in three sizes and colors and are available in various sets: the large red brick is 12 x 6 x 3 inch, the medium yellow brick is 6 inch x 6 inch x 3 inch, the small blue brick is 6 inch x 3 inch x 3 inch.

Little ones with a knack for building and creative play will be drawn to these lightweight and durable cardboard building blocks. A staple item in many preschools, this set can spark endless imaginative play as children build large, life-size structures. Builders practice mathematical skills as they add the number of blocks stacked on top of each other, and the various-sized blocks can facilitate a conceptual understanding of fractions. When kids are developmentally ready, parents can encourage them to discover that one large red block is the same size as two medium yellow blocks or four small blue blocks. Made from 50 percent recycled cardboard, the blocks have a smooth, water-resistant coating that's easy to clean. These blocks won a Parents' Choice Classic Award and a Dr. Toy Classic Award. One word of caution: Make sure there's enough storage space to hold all 40 blocks once assembled. --Lauren Bernard, mother and elementary school teacher

These are great, durable, fun cardboard blocks for your kids to build structures they can play in (for example, mine like to build walls under tables to make a fort or "rabbit hole" while they pretend they are rabbits, or they build towers around each other which they then love to crash down on their heads.) I like them because they are a nice physical toy that encourages the imagination. They are strong enough for kids to stand on (although I don't encourage it because they will weaken over time) and light enough that they aren't hurt if the blocks fall on them. And kids learn some spatial, balance, and construction concepts as well. Warning: assembly required, and you should take care when assembling to make sure you get them right (don't bend the cardboard in the wrong place or you will weaken them). Also,the best blocks are the larger red ones. The yellow ones are much harder to build with (no stability for height) and the blue (brick-sized) ones are nearly useless. I'm buying more of the red only, and I expect I will actually throw out the blue and yellow ones since they take up storage room but are pretty much useless. These blocks are expensive if you are going to buy enough of them. I recommend that your kids will need at least 30 red ones to really build things that they can play in (even building in an open-space brick-saving fashion)... and that gets costly. They can be stacked awayin a 2x3x4 area... it's helpful to cordon off a section of your room or have a big storage box that helps your kids figure out how to put them away. 5 stars for fun and child development, but I only gave 4 stars due to the expense and useless smaller blocks included.

For some reason Amazon moved this to a list of "private" reviews for me. Maybe they thought the original review was not pertinent since -- finally -- they added information in the product listing that hints (still does not come out and state) that you have to assemble these things.
ANYWAY 13 years later I can say, in our case the kid never came to like them. When they're so young it's hard to predict from a web page photo what will appeal to your toddler, but in our case it apparently wasn't these blocks.

Other kids seem to like them so we kept them around and tried to coax more play as time went on, but it never happened. Later on, we could not find anybody who needed or wanted to take them -- they take up a lot of space when assembled -- so I think they ended up being recycled. (It's been a while!) The point is, it helps a lot if you can observe your child playing with these, or some similar toy, before buying a bunch for your home. Below is the original 2002 (!) review.
=================

I found it amazing that no product listing or review mentioned an obvious question that we had when considering this purchase. YES, as you might suspect, these cardboard blocks come as individual, precut flat pieces that you must assemble yourself. Also not mentioned is the distribution of sizes. In this set of 40 total, 24 of them are the small size (blue). Even with practice, assembly takes time. Plan on an at least an hour to do all 40 of them, unless you are very nimble-fingered.

Our 2-year-old found them instantly intriguing, but quickly became frustrated by the difficulty of stacking them without knocking them over.

My older two children had these when they were little. It hit me like a ton of bricks (haha) that my 3 year old would LOVE them. I knew I could depend on Amazon! Once you assemble one brick, it is quite easy to do. It is much easier to do it WITHOUT your child watching you, but hey, it is still fun. The imagination is great as you watch them build Billy Blazes, the Rescue Heroes, a new house.....line them up and make a road for their cars....build a castle...or just pile them up to knock over! My 7 yr old has created furniture for her American Girl doll wtih them as well! They are quite durable and you can even stand on them without crushing them. They do take up some room, so you might want to save a large box to store them in. Or, you can do what I do and line them up against the wall and pretend it is the fireplace I don't have. :-) I don't think you can go wrong with this good old fashioned fun! Hey, and the GREATEST thing of all....NO BATTERIES and they don't talk!!!!! I am off to order a second set while they are in stock! I think we might get the castle ones this time to add on to our set!!

These blocks have been a hit in our house since our boys were old enough to crawl! They are now 4.5 and 2.5 and still love them. The only problem is that there are so few of the biggest blocks, which are the easiest to stack. The smaller blocks don't stay stacked very well. As for the assembly part, yes, it takes a few minutes. But once you get the idea, it goes fairly quickly. The blocks do come with an order form for ordering more of each individual size (not cheap--the big blocks are almost $2 a piece!) However, the blocks are sturdy and lots of fun!
