Comments about Melissa & Doug Standard Unit Blocks:

So heavy buteasy for a child, even a 21 month old can begin exploring with these blocks. Bought these for my great-grandson for Christmas, so he 's overwhelmed by the " massiveness " .
Friend highly recommended these as being suitable even up to 8 yrs of age

    Comments about Melissa & Doug Standard Unit Blocks:

    I had originally intended to purchase the set that contained 100 pieces, but settled on this one instead. These blocks are VERY durable! My kids (he's 4, she's 7) got these for Christmas 2011, and this is probably the most played with toy they have. They build houses and towers and castles, etc, then knock them down. With all that demolition work, only one block has a tiny chip in a corner.
    Plastic toys come and go, but I think these will be around for a very long time. Good, quality wood. Really gets the creative juices flowing.

      Comments about Melissa & Doug Standard Unit Blocks:

      I LOVE IT So much i have purchases another set so the kids can go BIGGER!!!
      I bought these blocks for my daycare as a creativity toy and found so many more wounderful uses. Being a standard Unit is great 2 small blocks make a med block 2 med blocks make a big one etc. It has even shown useful in helping my 10 year old (who has learning disabilities) the basic concepts of fractions and geometry!!
      This product remains the best value it takes a beating from the littest and still provides quality for everyone!

        Comments about Melissa & Doug Standard Unit Blocks:

        I bought this for my 2 year old. I was worried that since it didn't have any color that they might prove boring BUT I was WRONG. He loves them. He uses them as ramps for his little cars and builds and stacks them. He has lots of fun and he always goes back to them. I highly recommend because they are solid wood, no paint to worry about chipping or looking bad, and they come in a wood storage box. This is a heavy duty product that can stand the test of time.

        Discover Countless Ways To Play
        • SHAPES & SIZES Talk to kids about the different shapes and sizes of blocks in the set. Ask kids to explore different ways to make shapes of equal sizes using different blocks. For instance, two square blocks are the same size as one medium rectangular block; two medium rectangular blocks are the same size as one large rectangular 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!

        • SMALL & LARGE Ask kids to choose one block of each shape (14 in all). Challenge them to arrange the shapes in a straight line from smallest to largest.

        • TALL TOWER Using just the rectangular and square blocks, take turns stacking pieces to make a tower as tall as possible. If someone stacks a piece that makes the tower tumble, the other player gets a point; the first to get five points wins!

        • CREATE A WORLD Blocks are great for building towers, walls, roads, and towns, and they play perfectly with many toys you already have! Use wooden or metal cars, toy trains, chunky puzzle pieces, and play people to play make-believe.

        • FACE IT Have kids arrange the blocks so they look like a face. Add ears, a hat, a bow-tie, or a beard! Challenge kids to create different expressions -- how would they make a face look sad or surprised?
