Beautiful Building Blocks

Spring 2011 Toys
Ages: 3 & Up
Manufacturer: Timberworks Toys
Price: $79.00

The Timberworks block set is a simple set of wooden blocks. The simplicity is what we enjoy the most about this toy. It immediately captured the attention of testers. They played with it for several hours on the first day, and even very young children enjoyed attempting to make structures with them. Children will love stacking them in different configurations and then knocking them over and rebuilding. This toy challenges children to use their creativity and to develop their fine motor skills as well as problem solving skills. They need to try to see what fits and what doesn’t and how they can stack the blocks in different ways. As a child’s skills and imaginations grow, so will the complexity of the things that they will build with these blocks. They are a bit bulky, but that should be expected from such a high quality wood product. They came with an attractive tote bag for storage, a definite plus. The price was reasonable for such a durable set of blocks. These blocks are not colorful, noisy or flashy, just good, old-fashioned fun and we glady recommend them.
