Rated 3 out of 5Â by CrunchyMama08 Nice blocks, not quite the size expected
My daughter really loves building with these blocks. The possibilities are really endless, we build houses, playgrounds, obstacle courses and many other things for her toys. However, these were bought to add on to the blocks in the Unit Blocks on Wheels which we had first. Since they were the same shapes as those blocks I had assumed they would be the same size as well, but they are significantly smaller. I was disappointed by this, but we still like them. It would be nice to be able to add to the collection from her wagon though without having to buy another wagon set.

TOOOOO MANY PIECES. Apart from being too sleek, it's impossible for 3+ to come up with the stack-model shown on the box (they are individually assembled, placed in front of ea other) except in an IDEAL condition. Out of the box and immediately my child was DISINTERESTED. I am sending it back. I talk to a M & D associate said "will NOTE." I will recommend this product if the pieces can stack/clip together and an instruction/assembling guide included.

My son received these as a Christmas gift from his grandparents. He was still a little young, so we put them away till he was about 18 months old. He and my 3 year old love to play with them. My son is Autistic and one thing he loves to do is build. He will sit with these for a good while before getting bored. My daughter uses them more imaginatively, sometimes pretending they are food items. She also likes to build, towers and castles.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by GaGirl12 Much smaller than expected
Without any pictures to refernce the size, I could not tell how small these were. I assumed they wrere standard size building blocks like others I have seen from Melissa and Doug. However, they are much smaller than I expected. (This is probably why they are reccomended for 3 and up.) I bought them for my 1 year old and I thought they were too small for him. I would say the small cube block is about 1 inch.
