Classic Toy Provides Hours of Fun
This classic wood block set includes 100 solid wood blocks painted bright red, blue, yellow, and green. A versatile variety of shapes are included: rectangular prisms, cubes, cylinders, half circles, arches, and two different sizes of rectangular planks and triangles.

The blocks come in a variety of sizes including the half-circle measuring about 1-1/2 inches long and the tallest rectangular plank measuring about 3-1/2 inches long. Their size, combined with the wonderful variety of shapes, makes them just challenging enough for younger children to manipulate. A three-year-old tester enjoyed trying to build towers and walls as tall as possible, as well as sorting the blocks by shape and color. And the smaller size of the blocks keeps them interesting for older children, too--so kids can easily get many years of use out of them.

High-Quality Construction
Parents will appreciate the safe, durable construction of these blocks. Though they're made of solid wood, these blocks are light in weight, which makes them safer for small children. The blocks have rounded edges and a smooth painted finish that won't splinter with play.

The only drawback: while many Melissa & Doug toys come packaged in long-lasting, aesthetically pleasing storage containers, this set of blocks comes in a cardboard box. But while the box won't last forever, these blocks will. And as with all of their products, Melissa & Doug states that this toy is made with non-toxic coatings and meets or exceeds US toy testing standards.

About Melissa & Doug
Started in the garage at Doug's parents' house in 1988, Melissa & Doug has grown to become one of the most popular toy makers in the world. Their toys have garnered dozens of parenting and "best toy" awards over the years, and have been featured widely in national print media and on television.

One of the company's points of pride is that their toys are thoroughly tested for safety, and meet all US consumer product safety regulations. The toys are tested at the factory of origin during various phases of the production process to ensure that every toy meets the company's stringent safety requirements every step along the way. In particular, the paints and coatings on Melissa & Doug toys are tested frequently to be sure they meet or exceed government recommendations limiting heavy metals and lead in children's items.

Since day one, Melissa & Doug has been in compliance with every US consumer product safety regulation and will continue to stay compliant as the laws continue to evolve, assuring parents that their children can have a safe childhood while playing with Melissa & Doug toys.

What's in the Box

I bought two boxes of these blocks for my son when he was two because blocks are a wonderful open ended toy. The blocks were well made and the paint never chipped on ours. Although the product was as described I would not buy them again.

I found these to be so small it took a lot of patience and time to build larger structures. My son's creations would take a while to build, then fall over easily. My son and I had a few opportunities to play with larger blocks and it was so much fun to assemble huge, more stable towers, quickly. I gave all our little blocks away and bought the Melissa and Doug set of 60. We now have a daughter who is almost one and both children use them daily in different ways. If I could do it all over again I would have saved money and began with the set of 60. We are considering a second set of the larger blocks since they are so much fun and well worth the money. [...]

This is a durable, quality toy. Colors are vivid and the paint endures constant falling/smashing. However, pieces are too small for any child less than 4; not because they cannot hold it but because they do not provide adequate stability when the child tries to build something. If the pieces are not leveled perfectly, they fall apart with the slightest touch because they are too small, narrow, and LIGHT. And if your child is less than 4 years old, s/he probably will not have the patience to built up anything that falls apart constantly. Overall, toy has very good material quality, but I would go for sets with bigger pieces if the child is not 4 or older.

I called the company and they assured me that all Melissa and Doug toys are painted with non toxic paint and that they test often.

Of all the high-tech gadgets my kids got during Christmas, the toy they kept going back to was these blocks and another little block village set that I bought to go along with this one. Even the 13-year-old son of a friend got involved. Good toy that will keep interest!

My 4 year old grandson, and his parents, were thrilled when he receieved these blocks yesterday. We'd been unable to find colored wooden blocks in any local stores. I was happy to see that the yellow blocks were just as vibrant as the red and blue. In the picture I saw they looked rather pale.

What I wish I'd known prior to purchase is the dimensions of the blocks. They are smaller and thinner than I had anticipated. That being said, their size has not diminished my grandson's enjoyment one iota. He likes to build roads with the blocks and can't wait to build the castle pictured on the box the blocks came in. (As soon as we can find a time when his little sister isn't around to knock it down, that is.)

I do like the variety of shapes as it helps him to learn more about triangles, squares, rectangles, etc. The small size of the blocks is the only thing that detracted from the purchase. Otherwise they earned an A+ from this grandma!

We are grand parents from the pre-computer, pre-video game era, when a carboard box became a puppet theatre and a sheet over a couple of chairs became a tent on a jungle safari. Wooden blocks leave it to the child's imagination as to what he or she can create. The Melissa and Doug products are naturally simple wooden shapes. The craftsmanship is excellent and the blocks will last for years (requiring no upgrades or patches!).

If these blocks have a prop 65 warning(known to cause cancer)doesn't that mean they are dangerous? Check info on item. No one else seems to have noticed this.Ive noticed many melissa and doug items here on amazon have the prop 65 warning and it makes me wary to purchase them.

Melissa & Doug 100 Piece Wood Blocks Set rocks! We use ours with my sons GuideCraft Mirror and colorful Sand Blocks! It helps make his structures bigger and taller to make a better KNOCK DOWN! :) Seeing as how that's our favorite part of building with blocks. They are smaller than other building blocks and are a great addition to any blocks your little one already has or for LITTLE hands. My 2 year old likes the fact that because they aren't HUGE he can have one in each hand and build faster. It's a great toy to teach patience and precision. 100 pieces is a perfect amount too!
