This is one of those toys you will get long time use out of.
Penelope
Very well constructed, high quality, just like other Melissa and Doug toys that I've purchased.
Addie Writer
She can stack quite a few by herself and loves it if you stack it up for her to knock over.

Our daughter received these blocks when she was 16 mo. old and absolutely loves them! She stacks them, nests them, and builds sloping steps for her cars to run down. I was worried they would be too advanced for her (since the recommended age is 2 yrs) but I think that the 2 yr recommendation is to be able to sort the blocks by animal type, color etc. We gave this set as a gift to a 1 yr old and she loved it too. The blocks are made of lightweight wood, so they can be lifted easily, but are strong enough for climbing, sitting, and and being thrown as the tower gets knocked down. Melissa & Doug make such great products and this is no exception. Tons of fun and best of all, no batteries or electronic sounds required!

I love Melissa and Doug products, which is one reason I chose this nesting block set. It looked like a quality set. My two year old loved playing with them, but unfortunately, after only 2 weeks, 2 of the blocks came apart in pieces. I have tried to glue them but they simply come apart again. Also, they do have an unpleasant chemical smell that has lingered even now-almost 6 weeks after I purchased them. I think it may be the finish...? Also, if your child likes to knock the blocks around or may throw them, they are much heavier (and potentially damaging!) than cardboard nesting blocks. I do like them still, just wish they were a little more durable and didn't fall apart like they did!

I recently purchased the M&D wooden animal blocks for my 18 month old. Here are my observations:

PROS
This is one of the only toys that will keep my daughter busy for 20-30 minutes, it is not noisy, & does not require turning on the TV. Just some good old fashioned fun! She will stack the blocks, nest them, put them in a bag to carry around, & examine the animals on the blocks. I like that the animal pictures are pleasant to look at, not too bright or busy but still interesting. The blocks are made of ply wood (I think) so they are not too heavy for my daughter to move around and lift. Be aware that with a younger child these could hurt if the blocks toppled on them & if they are thrown they will cause some damage. Not an issue for us but something to be aware of.

CONS
When I opened the package the picture/paint on one of the blocks was peeling off/flaking. I have simply taken the block out of the mix & am keeping a close eye on the other blocks, so far so good. My daughter enjoys playing with the remaining blocks so we'll try it w/ the 7 instead of 8. So be sure to carefully examine your blocks before giving them to your kiddo.

Overall a nice product, lots of fun, hopefully you will receive one that is in perfect shape & can enjoy it fully.

We got these for our 18-month-old for Christmas. She loves them...but her 3-year-old sister and 5-year-old brother do to! Every child seems to be able to do something fun with these. Pretty wonderful for a toy that doesn't need batteries, and takes up so little space when it's time to put them away. We love these!

We ordered this as part of a birthday present for a cousin. The blocks were colorful easy to store but from the time we opened the package the first block was coming apart. I felt so bad that I offered to buy it at another store or a similar product. I have ordered Melissa and Doug products before and I have never had this problem. I have to say I wouldn't order it again.

These were a great purchase. My 2yo loves stacking them and nesting them, figuring out which one has to come next in order to fit they way she wants. They're very sturdy. My 4yo makes them into "steps" and walks up and down them. They've held up to his weight, and the constant knocking down of the stack every time it's built. My 2yo also turns them upside down, steps into two blocks, and walks around in them calling them boots. My 12yo makes a carnival game of them by turning them upside down and having a little ball to throw into the different sized blocks. My 9yo noticed shortly after we got these that the 4 different background colors on the sides coincide to the different animal types pictured: Red - farm, green - mountain, orange - jungle, and blue - water giving even great possibilities for learning and matching, etc. The animals pictured also relate in size order to the sizes of blocks (the largest animals being shown on the largest block down to the smallest shown on the smallest block.

After nearly daily, heavy use by several children over the course of a few months, one side of one block seems a little bit loose. It's not in danger of coming apart, but I can tell it doesn't feel as sturdy as the others anymore. Otherwise they've held up for the past few months!

I was thrilled to receive these blocks as a gift. When I opened the package, however, I was shocked by the strong, toxic smell. I have been airing the blocks out on the porch for a week and they still smell awful. My eyes burn when I get too close to them. I'm not even sure I'm going to let my son play with them. It's too bad, because they are very cute and I think he'd like them. I don't have much faith in Doug and Melissa toys these days.

The perfect stacking blocks, my 15 month old loves them. I love them because they're durable and nest inside each other for easy cleanup and storage. With all the toys that light up and make crazy noises this simple toy is a ton of fun and his favorite.
