This 16 piece set was our gift to our two children one Christmas. I envisioned it being played with in certain ways but Katherine and Charlie worked their wonder and transformed this sturdy set of blocks into countless creations.
Photo Note: This photo shows the Large Building Block Set and a Half Tunnel Set (see link below) sold separately. Children love having both these sets to play with together.
It has been an airport, a puppet theater, a camping tent, a king and queen's throne, a highway, bridge, tunnel, and a tall tall tower. Each block is sturdy enough for an adult to stand or sit on. Oh, yes, each piece makes a great bench or stool too.
And the two long ramps (15 1/2 inches long by 8 inches wide) are used in endless ways. I would highly recommend this set as a gift that will be used and used and loved... I thought this set would live in my son's room but from the moment it was unwrapped, the set has been in constant use in the living room. Everyone enjoys it! Solid Birch wood and plywood construction. Made in China, extremely well assembled and finished with a non-toxic clear coat to protect the wood from occasional liquid spills.
NOTE: This item is heavy and will be drop shipped to you from the distributor. We will only ship this item to the lower 48 States unless you are willing to pay the actual UPS/USPS Priority shipping charge - which we would have to look up on a case by case basis. If you order additional items, they will be shipped in a separate box. The blocks cannot be gift wrapped and may take 1-2 weeks to ship.
