These blocks, made of rubber wood, are great fun as long as the scale of the structures is kept small. In combination with heavier quality maple blocks (Barclay wood blocks), I find that the lack of precision in the machining of the M&D blocks leads to a bit of instability, e.g. 4 architectural columns placed together does not form a solid even surface for something to be placed on top. Whereas 4 maple cylindrical blocks on the exact same surface provided a solid even surface for taller structures. Anyways, the M&D blocks are still fun, an inexpensive option, and a clever kid can probably work around the limitations.

I purchased these for my 2 and 6 year old boys. They enjoy them. What a great value and what great quality. I purchased it along with the Melissa and Doug Standard block set (64 pieces I believe, and natural wood also). If you are looking for a nice block set I would purchase both. I'm glad we did. One set would have been good, but the two sets together are better. There are more options, especially with this set. The different blocks, such as the pillars, provide extra character over some of the other sets I've considered. The blocks are a good size too. I've seen some pricier sets that have blocks that are half the size. The corners/edges of the blocks are sanded down also, so they don't have rough edges. These are the type of blocks that you would find in a classroom setting. Click "BUY" now!

The old fashion building blocks were a hit from Santa. After the remote controled toys and WI were tried... the children went back to the blocks...creating villages and buildings for their cars and trains. Grandma also added minature pine trees and cardboard roofs...This gift will outlast the batteries and TV games. Good choice! We could have used even a larger set.

These are beautifully made blocks, well finished without rough edges or other problems. And blocks are one of the best toys out there for small (and not-so-small) children to build creativity, spatial reasoning, and the beginnings of mathematical thinking. The price on these is extremely fair for the quality, and much better than many I've found. A five-star product from a five-star toy producer.

These are very sturdy, well-constructed wooden blocks. My daughter loves to build with blocks, but she was limited with her small set of plain blocks. This set has let her build many different structures using the unique shape blocks including columns, arched doors and steps. We are probably going to buy another set so she can build bigger buildings.

This is an excellent addition to a basic wooden block set. Our daughter has loved playing with wooden blocks since she was 3 years old (she is now 4 1/2). We added these architectural blocks to her basic set and they have allowed her creativity to expand. The blocks are smooth, sturdy and durable. They have done a great job in holding up to the demands of a preschooler and we would definitely recommend them.

I bought this set for my three-year-old grandson. He loves this set and enjoys building towers with this. This is a set that should last him a while. There is no paint that can chip off, nor are there any rough or uneven edges, but I noticed that almost every piece of wood has a chip in it, as if this set was made from scrap lumber with prior cuts in it. This obviously does not take away from the fun or educational level, however, some of the chips are quite obvious and adds a certain cheapness to what should otherwise be a great product.

The grandparents purchased this set of blocks for my two girls (1 & 3) and it has been a phenomenal hit. At first I recommended against the purchase -- it was expensive and we already have a glut of toys. I figured these blocks would just collect dust. Was I wrong.

My older daughter loves constructing with these blocks and plays with them almost every day. "Block time" has become a ritual every evening before bed. What I enjoy is watching her incorporate so many of her other toys into her structures -- little princess toys, my old Star Wars action figures, elements of her dollhouse. And they are super durable -- our youngest throws them around and there aren't any dings or, worse, splintering.

There are a few pics of nice finished projects on the case label that are real easy to duplicate and even easier to riff on. I'm often surprised to see intriguing, multifaceted designs emerge rather than a mere single tower that topples.

There are enough pieces to make this set worthy as a stand-alone but I might even purchase another and get monumental.
