These blocks are not as sturdy as the brand name blocks, but you would not want them to be as thick and heavy as that at this size. They are light and easy to put together, colorful, and fun. My kids make forts, chairs that they can sit on, walls for Nerf battles... My kids are 11 and 9 and can sit on a "throne" they made." These hold up well and are hours of creative fun, plus brighten my son's room. Lots of fun!
I purchased these for my grandsons for when they come to my house. I already had lots of smaller blocks and the boys always passed them by. Not so with these! It was love at first sight and my family room has been a block building site ever since. These blocks are large and there are enough for several children to build with or for building really big structures. The blocks are very well sanded and excellent quality. I used a 1/4 beeswax, 3/4 flax seed oil made into a waxy paste to rub the blocks with to give them a more cleanable finish. It brought out the beautiful grain in the wood to the point where the kids even say they are beautiful blocks. I doubt you will find better blocks than these anywhere!
Could not be more pleased with the delivery speed, quality and fun these blocks represent. Had a small set of Bloks by a company in Houston, TX that no longer exists. Had given up on finding anything that would work with the old set. And then we found these. And they work. A little on the pricey side but I justified the cost because I believe they will get years of use. 3 year old and 19 month old love them. Really helpful with beginning building skills. A watchful eye is necessary since the blocks are so sturdy they have some sharp edges.
