It's quite a rush for a little kid to see that he or she is capable of building something so big! That's just the first stage of the fun with giant cardboard blocks.
Once a child connects that they can make walls and corners - they don't need any prompting. They start building grocery stores, airplanes, stadiums... there's no stopping the imagination!
Dado Bricks offer all that fun - plus, the interlocking nature ensures that when Dado Bricks are stacked they won't easily tumble and retain a rigid structure. At long last, kids can use stacking bricks to create structures that last beyond three minutes!
Dado Bricks enable little children, especially those 2 to 5 years old, the opportunity to advance in logical thinking skills, refine motor skills, and explore in a big way through imaginative play!
Every kid deserves the chance to see their imagination played out in large scale design. The use and reuse giant blocks get is phenomenal. Though with Dado Interlocking Cardboard Bricks- we're most elated by the scale of the play dimensions!

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.
Dado bricks make great forts
Posted 4/4/2013 by Lisa Stiffler
My 4.5 year-old daughter has been dismantling couches and swiping bed sheets to build forts in her bedroom. When I saw the Dado blocks, they looked like the perfect medium for her construction, and a chance for me to get cushions back on my sofa.
The assembly of the blocks wasn't too onerous and we sort of made a game of it. The blocks seem sturdy enough and lock together really nicely. I opted to purchase two sets based on reviews that lamented needing more blocks to really build cool stuff. We probably could have gotten away with one set, but I don't buy her toys very often and these seemed like an item she'd like for a while, plus since they're cardboard, I didn't have the plastic guilt to overcome.
Review of Dado Cardboard Bricks
Posted 11/18/2012 by kathleen barrett
It was for my grandsons. I opened it and found all the items needed a bit of assembly first and the cardboard was not easy to work with. I also felt it would be too easy for one of them to fall on any of the pieces and crush or misshape them and then they'd be useless if bent. I sent the set back after about 1/2 hour of trying to figure if it would work for my grandsons. This product should be only used with children who are old enough to know to NOT fall on the structures and to respect the integrity of the shapes and forms. In my opinion, it's NOT for children under 7 unless extremely mature and able to understand the cautionary way this toy needed to be played with.
Adult assembly of Dado Bricks is recommended. The durable material and interlocking nature of Dado Bricks structure ensures that the giant blocks are not easily crushed. Cautionary play is not required with typical child use. Please keep in mind - with your purchase from Fat Brain Toys, full satisfaction is built right in.
