Our Premium Hard Maple blocks (all firsts) are hand-selected to be as nearly perfect as possible. Hard Maple is the traditional material for classic American blocks. Our premium blocks are milled from the highest quality Michigan and Indiana Rock Maple and carefully inspected for color and uniformity. There are no knots or blemishes and they will last a lifetime. They are hand sanded on the ends and the end edges and corners are rounded.
This is the block for people who want quality. Your blocks will last a long time and will get much more rough play than ordinary toys. Children typically play with blocks until they are 8 or 9 years old and then the blocks are often saved in an attic trunk for future generations.
This is a good beginner set of blocks. The smallest block is too large to choke on. This set has 9 different shapes for the small child to use while exploring and discovering the use of their body. After all, isn't this what play is at a very young age? Suggested for children 3 and over.
Made in the USA of solid wood from the USA.
Pieces in this set are rectangular, arched, semi-circular, triangular, ramps, and columns. The largest piece is 5 1/2" in length, the columns are 1 3/8" in diameter, and the smallest piece is a 1 3/8" cube.
