These are premium-quality blocks that are hefty and easy for my 20-month-old to hold and stack. The edges and corners are a little sharper than usual (not sanded down to a curve), but that hasn't been an issue, and makes the puzzle more satisfying when assembled.
I will say that the snarky comment on the box about buying Chinese toys that are made in the U.S. turned me off. Yes, I'm willing to pay extra for this toy that's made here in the U.S., but since these toys are clearly targeting people who want to learn more about China, the politicization seems unnecessary and off-key.
Overall, a great toy with lots of educational value. Worth the price!
- Chinese character with strokes to learn writing
- Chinese character with English translation
- Image of object with pinyin
- Chinese number
- puzzle of China, Chinese flag, and a dragon
I strongly recommend this toy for pre schoolers. Grandparents and parents alike will be able to see the child's delight.
The couple things that I would say as a "negative" about these blocks would be that the edges are not rounded, so they can hurt if they are thrown across the room. Also, there is pinyin (pronunciation system) for the animals on the blocks, however there is no pinyin provided for the numbers. Thankfully, I know Chinese, so I am able to help them with that.
(For anyone who would like to know how to pronounce the numbers, I recommend getting the free app called "Pleco." Just type anything in and there is a button you can push to hear the pronunciation.)
Overall, a mostly perfect buy for my 3 boys. Great fun and great for learning!
