Great toy for imagination, organization, logic... fun!!

Comments about Melissa & Doug Deluxe Jumbo Cardboard Blocks - 40 Pieces:

Got these (2 sets) for my grandsons (4 and 2) a couple of years ago. They still play with them regularly and their builds keep getting more sophisticated, going from the usual tower, to roads, bridges, garages and domino creations. Sturdy cardboard yet light enough for little hands. Overall, a great gift. I love how their imagination switch gets turned on by a simple pile of colourful bricks!

You can't go wrong with kids and cardboard I say. Love the different shapes
and bright colors.

Charlotte turned four and her cousin Geno (nine) came to play that day.
They had so much fun building together. Nana ended up an animal in
the zoo that they built.

    My grand children have played with these blocks for 4 years and they are still in great condition. They have built castles and knocked them down, they've built walkways that they have walked on many times. Everyone comments on what a fun toy these are. No one has ever been hurt playing with them. They are light enough for little ones to handle.

      When my twins were babies (now 24) they loved these toys at a doctor's office, so I made them some out of tissue boxes and wrapped them in funny paper...which worked until they thought they were presents. I am now buying a set for my great nephews hoping they will enjoy them as much.

        These are great for large motor, but require care in stacking. Good for kids from 2 to 5 as a gift, but kids up to 10 will continue to play with them. The only problem is that the package includes too many of the smallest size, and not enough of the biggest size. Kids should be able to make a "fort" out of them and actually be inside it.

            My daughter got these as a Christmas present and they are just awesome. The construction is very durable and the colors are nice and bright.

            You may have difficulty getting your first few blocks together because they have an internal support system which means they won't squish the minute your child accidently steps on one! Assembly between two adults took 45 minutes.

            These blocks are great for all ages of kids...even adults. Blocks are really sturdy and hold up to a lot of beating. Only down fall is the sets need more large blocks and less of the small. Other than that they are great. Also, buy 2 sets, one set is not enough to build much.

              Great construction, weight, composition, color. Easy to assemble. But pricey for the quantity received considering they are simply cardboard.

              Discover More Ways to Play
              • SORT BY COLOR Have kids sort the blocks by color and count the number of each. Ask kids to line up the red blocks end-to-end, then the blue blocks, then the yellow. Which make the longest line? Challenge kids to rearrange the three lines (keeping red with red, blue with blue, and yellow with yellow) to make them shorter or longer. Have them do the same thing, but by stacking the blocks into towers instead of lining them up on the floor!

              • PATTERN POWER Create a pattern with four or more blocks. Have kids continue the pattern with other blocks. Have fun discovering different ways to make patterns -- lay blocks on the floor, stack them in towers, pay attention to horizontal and vertical orientation, etc.

              • SQUARES & RECTANGLES Talk to kids about which blocks are square and which are rectangular. Ask kids to explore different ways to make shapes of equal sizes using different blocks. For instance, two blue blocks side by side are the same size and shape as a red block. Have younger kids experiment by laying the blocks on top of each other; challenge older kids to create a shape the size of a block or blocks you are holding. Talk about half and whole, and, as kids get older, fractions!

              • HIDE OUT Have kids make a structure that will hide different household objects from view. Start with small things like a crayon or a chunky puzzle piece and hide it completely. Then, have them conceal larger items like a stuffed animal, book, or pillow behind a wall or tower. Lie down on the floor have them build a wall to hide you from view!

              • BUILD IT Blocks are great for building towers and walls and forts, but what else can kids build? The possibilities are endless! Suggest using the blocks to make a chair for a teddy bear, a table, a staircase, or a pyramid. Build roads and walls and combine with dolls, stuffed animals, toy cars, etc. to play "town." Challenge kids to arrange the blocks to look like their initials or the letters in their names.

              • KNOCK IT OFF! One of the best things about building towers with cardboard blocks is knocking them down! With this game, kids try to knock their tower down one block at a time. Have kids build a tower using six blocks. Starting at the tower, take three giant steps, turn around, and face the tower. Toss one of the small yellow blocks to try to knock just the top block off the tower! Repeat until the whole tower has been leveled. If kids knock off more than one block, they have to replace them and start again. Have fun varying the number of blocks, number of players, or the distance players stand from the tower. Or, try it blindfolded and try to knock down the whole tower with a single toss of a block!
