Sturdy and colorfulFeb 17, 2008
By Mom of 2, soon to be 3
Ordered for my son to work on motor coordination, we are really happy with the product. They fold down to flat boxes and though somewhat tedious to put together, they wind up extremely sturdy and toddler-damage resistant! Colorful and all-around in keeping with the brand's great products. ****Note that most of the boxes are the tiny size, some are medium, but only 4 are large shoe-box size. If ability to build a big structure is what you are after, you definitely need their bigger set.

Toddler blocksJan 09, 2007
By Amazon Customer
This basic set of Cardboard Blocks was a big hit with my 2 year old grandson! They are easily assembled, sturdy (he stood on them) and lightweight. He was facinated with building a tunnel for his "choo-choo"! I have seen them in use over the years and always knew they would be an early purchase whenever I had grandchildren. I wish I had them when my own children were small!

Fun and durableOct 14, 2010
By Kristina D
We bought this set of blocks mainly for our 2 1/2 year old son. He absolutely loves them! I was a little concerned when reading the reviews that people were saying you really need more of the big red ones to have the most fun. Yes, I suppose more big blocks would be fun, but the sizes of blocks that come in this set have managed to entertain my son quite happily for several hours. We may add on to the set later, but for a starter set, this is great! They are also much sturdier than I imagined they would be. My 30 lb son can line them up like a balance beam and walk across them with no problem. Overall, we are very happy with this purchase.

Stingy on large blocks!Nov 04, 2012
My grandson was disappointed with the number of large blocks in this set-only 4 out of 24! Be careful because it doesn't state this anywhere. If you want to build " tall, tall towers", this is not the set for you!!

Fantastic Creative Play ToySep 20, 2011
By Altaira K. Plonis
I purchased these blocks for my 26 month old twin girls. The blocks come in pre-folded flat forms that you have to assemble, which takes about 30 minutes for the entire box. My girls have utilized these almost every day by stacking, throwing, standing on them, making walls and plowing through them with their balance bikes and jumping on them. These blocks really take a beating and look no worse for the wear. They even tried to wash a few in the sink and they dried perfectly. The blocks can be cleaned with either a damp cloth or Lysol wipes with no issue. I was totally recommend these as a must have toy.
