Dado Bricks - Imagination is spectacular.

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!

    Product review of Dado Cardboard Bricks
    Posted 4/8/2014 by Melinda Allivato

    My 7 yr old loves to build. He was building caves and tunnels for his train tracks and was using anything within reach to make his creations. He'd stack up game boxes, books, baskets and even the mail. After looking at many options, I decided to purchase two boxes of the Dado Blocks to hopefully get my household back in order. It worked! I started assembling the blocks and he started tearing down the last layout to replace it with the Dado Blocks without a word said. He was actually waiting on me to finish a block to incorporate it in his new layout. They have been in use ever since. I agree with most reviewers that having more than one box is ideal. The blocks work well with wooden train tracks and marble maze tracks. The assembly of two boxes took about an hour. Assembly was very easy. They are sturdy--my son is not rowdy and I expect they will stay in good shape for some time. The boxes that the blocks came in are sturdy as well, and with a box cutter and ruler, was able to make them usable with the blocks too. I chose these over other cardboard blocks because the lego-like tops would make the structures more stable. Great toy!

    Dado Cardboard bricks are great!

    I am giving these bricks to my grandchildren. Although they haven't played with them yet, I know they will love them. I found them very easy to put together. I love the bright colors.

    I was pleased with the quality of the blocks. My nephew absolutely loves them. He can build "big things" (in his words). I am completely satisfied with this purchase.

    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 for Dado Cardboard Bricks
    Posted 12/26/2012

    Very cute blocks, very colorful and durable. They take a long time to put together and there isn't as many of them as I thought there would be. You almost need two sets to build a lot.
