What a beautiful toy for building! I bought this for my 2 1/2 year old, and she is growing into it. It takes some fine motor skill to stack the pieces on top of each other without them toppling over. The pieces are about 1/4" thick and 4" wide. I've built many patterns and she loves to knock them down like dominos. It also lends itself to pretend-play...in the most recent episode, the blocks were different flavored popsicles. I think this will be fun for many years to come.

This is hands down one of our top three favorite toys. It keeps my four year old son busy for at least an hour every time he takes it out (almost daily) and it holds my interest as well. We sit at the table building towers and knocking them down, creating designs, houses, flowers, animals, spelling names...it's endless.

They are basically flat bamboo blocks, about 1 inch wide by 4 inches long by 1/4 inch thick, in a rainbow of colors and shades all in a box of a generous 120 pieces both tactile and pleasing to the eye. I'm really gung-ho for environmentally friendly, safe, quality, brain expanding toys. Made of non toxic and eco-friendly bamboo, at under $[...], it's an incredibly great value for what it is.

The box is sturdy and designed to be used as a storage container, it has a little handle so you can carry it like a briefcase. Something as simple as that is really important to me. How many times have I bought a toy and it ends up smashed at the bottom of the toy box never to be really played with, or pieces get lost? I now look at how the toy will be stored before it comes into the house.

Contina! is durable, and something you could pass down through the generations. I can't say enough good things about it. If you need a fun activity that won't lose its appeal, a gift, or something for the classroom, this is a sure thing.
