I love blocks! Simple, elegant, and oh so educational. We bought our first set for my son’s first birthday. They have helped my children in so many ways! The blocks have become castles, parking lots, surfaces to roll marbles, and more. The possibilities are endless.
“There’s work with balance. Science. Math. Social emotional language. All these things interweave so beautifully in such a sophisticated way for such a basic material. It’s really amazing.”
To the parents of young children, if you do not have a set of wooden blocks, get some. They are amazing!
