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.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Momof3kids A Favorite In This House!
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.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bugblatter Beast Colorful and durable, weak storage
Fun and colorful paint is durable. All surfaces are smooth and flat for good balance with which to build. These blocks are small compared to other blocks, but work great! They are packaged very efficiently, tightly packed into the box. They do leave room for the blocks to fit back into the box after use, but the box is low quality so don't expect it to last too long. You will need to find a different storage solution.
