Considering the safety issues and the quality these blocks are a great value too.
these block DO attach together and you CAN build towers with them. the variety of different shaped blocks is good. and i ordered two sets and received two different color sets.
the colors aren't harsh like most baby toys, they aren't made in china, and they are a green product. i would much rather my child play with these than some chemical ridden, made in china set of blocks that will probably be recalled soon.
So I really was excited when they arrived! The blocks have the perfect size and have nice colours, also there is enough variety in the shapes.
HOWEVER my big problem with them is that they don't stay together, if you put one block on top of the other they are not attached to each other in any way so they just fall off with the mildest push. So building anything is impossible.
Another problem is that you have to put the smaller blocks on top of the big blocks, the other way around doesn't work. So for example, you can't put 3 small blocks next to each other and than put a bigger block on top (it doesn't attach, you can't lift it).
So, these blocks work for small babies who like pushing things over and seeing things fall but if you are looking for blocks to build with, skip these (wish I had).
Green toys makes highly durable, safe, quality, USA made, ecofriendly products and this is just another one we've added to our toy bin.
These blocks would be perfect, except for the fact that they have sharp edges that can pose a safety hazard. Because these blocks are hollow, they have open edges at the base. Recently, my 19 month-old daughter was running while holding one of these blocks in her hand, and when she fell, her forehead scraped against a sharp, open edge of the block, and it gave her quite a deep, little gash in her forehead. Very scary for Mom & Dad, and painful for our little-one. In fact, the cut was close enough to my toddler's eye that we were extremely concerned about what might have happened if the sharp edge of the block had poked her in the eye when she fell.
So all in all, these are good blocks, as long as you make sure that your little-one is SITTING DOWN while playing with them. Might not be a good fit for active toddlers who like to run around with their blocks in hand!
That being said... the blocks don't stay together very well when stacked. The walls of the blocks are thin and flex easily. The gripping bumps on the tops are short and I think that makes for a poorly functioning combination. They are on the larger side for building blocks, which is fine, but you don't get that many in a set which means you are limited in what you can build. If the blocks fit and stayed together better, I'd buy a few more packs to make up for the smaller portions. As it is, it is the least impressive of the ten or so GTs that we have. I would love to see the company redesign these blocks and work out the kinks because I think they could be a really great product.

They do not lock together well, but that is fine for a little one that cannot pull things apart easily.Published 16 months ago by Anonymous
I have no complaints with these. I have no clue why some people have said they don't stack because I've never had any problems with them. Read morePublished on April 21, 2014 by R. Fleming
These are fairly nice blocks but as others have commented, some blocks still well together but most just kind of fall apart.Published on December 28, 2013 by Music Man
My great grandson loves these blocks. My granddaughter is very particular about his toys, and wants every toy to be a green toy.
I would recommend these for any small child.

I am a big fan of Green Toys, and have found that their toys, like most good toys, can be used for a variety of purposes (not just for their "intended" function). Read morePublished on June 2, 2013 by AF
