Melissa and Doug Pattern Blocks and Boards
Melissa and Doug Beginner Pattern Blocks
My boys are 3 and 4 years old. There are patterns in this set that are just right for my easily distracted 3 year old, some that are a challenge to my much more focused 4 year old, and a couple that both of them will either grow into later or need assistance with now. The pieces fit nicely onto the patterns. All of the designs are very eye catching and engaging. I did notice a few things that I would change about the quality of this set if I could.
The board is made of a soft wood. I'm not sure what kind of wood it is, just that it has too much give for my comfort. The magnets are made of something similar to plywood. This is not good since they chip and peel. We have had the set for about 1 1/2 months and I have already had to repair some pieces with wood glue. This is in spite of the fact that my children are monitored as they use this product and have not been overly rough with it. The color on top is not paint. It is a sticker, which can peel off. I prefer paint.Read more ›
1. Poor quality pressed wood magnets smell of formaldehyde.
2. Magnets are topped with colored paper on the pressed wood, which easily chips/scratches off to being white. (straight out of the box with damage to paper layer)
3. Pieces are VERY tiny comparatively to other wooden block brands such as Learning Resources brand - almost all of these pieces in this set are choking hazards.
4. PVC storage bag - I'm not into exposing my child to toxic phthalates through their skin from touching this bag or inhaling the offgassing from this product (endocrine disruptors).
5. Magnet backing can easily peel off and is not cut to shapes well, lots of little black pieces all over the place out of the box.
6. Magnets do not stick as well to board once pattern sheet is placed for use with magnets on board.
7. All pattern sheets are "product art" with animal images, nothing for imagination such as geometric designs, and I do mean absolutely nothing.
8. As mentioned by other reviewers, these blocks are different sized than their counterparts printed on the sheet - this makes for incredible frustration for a preschooler who is desperately trying to make their fish or giraffe match the sheet (constant failure feeling).
Personally, we're going to buy another Learning Resources parquetry set from Amazon instead, it was a zillion times higher quality for learning and design - and definitely worth the few dollars extra for the many more years of use! This M&D set would not last purposefully for more than a week in our home with light use.
