Playing with blocks is great for building hand/eye coordination and visual perception, the former being something Quinn really struggles with.
We love to do many activities with these blocks in addition to making castles, like stacking them, then knocking them down, of course, building race tracks, garages, mazes or obstacles courses, and we’ve tested our jumping ability by seeing how many blocks Quinn can jump over. We’ve even done experiments like hypothesizing how high of a tower we can build on the tile floor and if we can build to the same heights on the carpet. We’ve had many hours of fun from these blocks with many, many more to come in the future years.
As with all Guidecraft’s products, these are extremely well-made and I would foresee them lasting for longer than one generation of children. These City Blocks retail for $45 on www.Guidecraft.com, and are worth every penny in my opinion.
Thank you to Guidecraft for providing a complimentary product sample for us to base this review upon.
