Let us talk blocks. These are the basic building blocks of creativity for young children. The solid wood blocks balance on top of each other for creating structures like towers and towns. These are not your basic building blocks; rather they come in four colours and nine shapes to help your child build a variety of structures. Triangles can be used as roof tops, half circles can be the curb along a sidewalk. There is no end to what you can build as long as your imagination is on board.
This wooden block set also has educational value. It introduces concepts such as gravity: you need a wider base than top or things will fall down. Your child can learn basic colours: blue, green, yellow, and red. It also introduces the concept of matching. You can pick out a triangle and have your child find a matching triangle in the same colour. You can also teach shapes like half circles, triangles, blocks, cylinders and more.
This is such a classic toy and should be a basic in any child's toy chest. I loved building blocks as a kid and I turned them into houses for my Barbie dolls, dungeons, towers, and more.
