Naturally Finished for a Classic Look
Wooden blocks have been around for centuries and make an excellent tool to teach basic math concepts, organizational skills, sequential skills, and spatial relations. It is no surprise that blocks are found in almost every pre-school and kindergarten classroom. Youngsters become the architect of their own world as they fit pieces together to form their vision. This open-ended play set stimulates creativity and hones basic motor skills.
Each set features a large variety shapes and sizes including arches, columns, squares, rectangles, triangles, cylinders, and circles, as well as basic, half, and double unit blocks. This block set is crafted to the standard unit block size of 5.5 inches long, 2.75 inches wide and 1.375 inches thick. It is constructed from Rubberwood, a resilient hardwood. The blocks are big, chunky, and easy for kids to grasp and build with. Smoothly sanded surfaces tantalize fingertips and create a handsome natural aesthetic. Best of all, when the child finishes constructing their masterpiece, all the pieces store neatly into a wooden storage box.
There is no limit to the types of fortresses the child can build with these blocks. This deluxe set even contains pillars, buttresses, gothic circles, and half-circles for advanced architecture. As an added bonus, the storage box doubles as a building platform. Children and parents have fun as they complete projects together. Parents can purchase another set and add to the amusement. An essential for any child's toy box, these blocks are sturdy, durable, and beautiful enough to put on display. The box measures 15 x 12.2 x 5.4 inches.

These blocks are very well made and the kids do such creative things with them. They are worth every penny.
Here's a tip. When these blocks first arrived, I took a photo of each layer of blocks (there are 3 layers) as we unpacked them. I'm posting those photos here, because I refer to them every time we put these blocks back in the sturdy box that they came in. The photos also give you an idea of the various sizes and shapes that are in the box.
These Melissa & Doug 60-piece blocks are made of solid unfinished wood. The edges are smooth and slightly rounded so they don't hurt my little one or give him splinters. So far we haven't had any problems with them.
These blocks stack and balance well together and create all sorts of castles, cabins, garages, or whatever you and your little one can imagine. :) Since baby's bedroom is carpeted, we turn over the wooden box the blocks come in and build on top of the box for a firm supportive platform.
Baby throws, bangs, licks, colors on, scrapes, and does goodness knows what else to these and they have withstood everything and remained in a build-able and usable condition.
Watch out if baby likes to throw or hit things with these. They're solid and they hurt. Thankfully we haven't gotten any splinters from them yet. I'm happy that they're natural wood with no chemical crap on them, so when baby chews on them he isn't ingesting anything harmful.
Ease of use:
They're super easy to build with. Although they get scattered easily and you will be finding pieces of them hidden throughout your house for the next 18 years probably.
They look great.
Get these blocks. They're safe, high quality, durable, and your baby will love playing with them.
Just the right size for him (4 year old). The pieces are various size and shape. Most of them are about 1.4" thick. The large long rectangular piece measures 1.4 x 2.75 x 11 inches.
The texture of the pieces are just right. Not too smooth that they slide off each other. Not too rough either.
1 set is great and 2 would be spectacular especially if I play with him! But $55 is a lot for 60 pieces is a lot so I'll wait for it on sale to get another set. I would love to know if there is something else similar out there for less.
You can not go wrong getting this for a toddler.
The variety of the blocks themselves is very nice. There are many different shapes and sizes for creative building. The blocks are a very sturdy hard wood, but are also very well sanded and smooth so there is no chance of splinters. They have a nice solid feel to them that I wanted. My daughter enjoys playing with them. My son is also completely obsessed with these blocks, and he is not even 1 yet! He loves to knock down towers and has even tried his hand at stacking the blocks. Great for honing those fine motor skills. My son has even gnawed on the blocks and the wood is so hard he hasn't even left a single tooth mark with his sharp little teeth. And they are so smooth I at least know he won't get a splinter in his mouth before I can get it away from him.
The storage box is a blessing. All the blocks fit in the box quite easily, and while the box is heavy when loaded with all the blocks, the carry handles make it easy to move from one place to another. My husband and I joked that these blocks are so sturdy and great that our grandchildren will be able to play with them someday. I plan to get a set for my therapy practice, and might even get an additional one for the house when my son gets older so both of them can have hours of creative play.
These are high quality, large, heavy blocks - accurate to the scale represented in the photo. They don't get lost or slid under the couch easily. I prefer the neutral, colorless wood to the bright, painted blocks... especially for the kids who chew on them. While I've only had the blocks for a short period of time, I fully believe my friend who says her kids have gotten years of use out of these and continue to play with them. I've had to throw away several block sets that didn't work for us due to size, quality, and overabundance of quantity, but I believe that these are just perfect. Every kid needs a good block set!
