OK, so the good news is that a beginner set of knobbed cylinders is a nice idea for parents eager to expose their kids to Montessori-style sensorial materials without the full expense. Other pluses are that this set is real wood and that the cuts are VERY precise, so the cylinders fit perfectly.

The bad news is that it's all incredibly tiny! There's the choking hazard problem, and there's also the problem where if this stuff gets scattered under the couch, you will NEVER ever be able to find the pieces again. However, your BABY totally will find the missing pieces (babies are clever like that), and they will be able to PULL THEM APART (the knobs are poorly attached and fall off at the slightest provocation) and then, naturally, they will mouth and swallow them.

Basically, points for effort, but poor execution requires an overall no-confidence vote from me.

I think my two yr old is tad young for these but he plays with them under my supervision and uses them as a sort of puzzle. High quality material, really love these cylinder blocks. I worried they would be too small versus the traditional sized montessori cylinder blocks but they are not too small, I don't ink I'd want them much bigger.

My daughter loves these. I knew they would be smaller than the standard Montessori Cylinder Blocks, as those are 10 to a row, but these are much more affordable and that is why I purchased them. They work very well and my daughter loves using them. Very happy I purchased these.

I wanted the skills learned by Montessori cylinder blocks for my daughter but we now live in a small town without any Montessori schools. The cost of the full sized set was impractical for our home, but these are perfect for a single child.

Love love love these. I bought them when my daughter was about 15m, and she instantly was interested in them. They are kinda small in size, but that makes them easy to take with me to a restaurant, or on a road trip. They would be difficult if you have a child that puts stuff in their mouth.
I'm a toddler montessori teacher, and this is the real deal. I would suggest it to anyone.
