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.
Nicely sized blocks; good price
Posted 12/10/2012 by Mary Hall
I purchased this for my almost 18-month-old for Christmas. He likes blocks, but has not played with these yet. Most blocks we've bought previously with our other kids--Hero wooden blocks, traditional ABC blocks, Discovery Kids castle blocks--are quite small. I wanted something more substantial for him to grip, that would produce bigger results for him, and these look like they'll do nicely. They are also attractive. I considered other brands like Haba, which offers specialty shapes lacking in the Melissa & Doug kit, but in the end two things led me to this choice: the reports of poorly sanded blocks in the Haba kit, and the nicer price of the Melissa & Doug version.
Some alternate spelling variations of this product:
blocks, unit blocks, hardwood blocks, hard wood blocks, preschool blocks, kindergarten blocks, large blocks, building blocks, play blocks, toddler blocks, melissa and doug, Melissa & Doug
