The wooden block set called the Melissa and Doug 60-Piece Standard Unit Blocks is a wooden building block set I recommend wholeheartedly to any kid or adult. I think you can see why I recommend it by looking at the photos below that were taken by various people who bought this set on Amazon.com
Kids in the photo above shows a small kid playing with this set, trying stack blocks together. They seem to enjoy and become very absorbed in their engineering project. Little architects seem to love building bridges, towers and more with Melissa & Doug wooden blocks.
This wooden block set is designed for ages three and up. It comes housed in a convenient, sturdy wooden storage crate. All in all this is a superb wooden block set. I think its very nicely made out of hardwood quality wood. So it will last longer and gives room for rough usage permitting kids to play as they wish with them. It also has fine rounded and sanded corners so kids don’t get hurt while playing with them.
Melissa & Doug recommends this set for ages: 3+. Then too, they advice for parental help in moving the wooden storage case because with the block the case measures about 15 pounds or 7.5 kilograms!
The next and last image shows you how the 60 pieces of wooden blocks pack nicely into its sturdy little wooden crate box. The crate box measures 12.5 x 15 x 5.25 inches. Since it is made by Melissa & Doug which has grown to become one of the most popular toy makers in the world, we can be sure the set is a quality product too.
It’s after a long time I had the pleasure of writing about a toy like this. When we hear so much about remote controlled flying helicopters, and other electronic toys to give to our children we tend forget about the good old educational family toys. I think looking at this finely crafted Melissa And Doug 60 Piece wooden building blocks helps us make sure we still get our children those correct things that help them play and learn and develop the necessary skills at an early childhood. This good old toy will help them exercise their imagination and eye-hand coordination skills etc. in ways toy vehicles or advanced electronic toys only can’t provide. So with toys like this still available I believe we shouldn’t loose hope for a better world. You can buy this now on Amazon.
