*Unfortunately, we are unable to supply Grimm's to customers outside the UK and Ireland. Other brands are unaffected.
We love these blocks! They are chunky, wonderfully coloured and stack very well. There is a great variety of shapes in the set and the wooden tray the blocks are supplied in is lined with felt so its a good base on which to play. We will never part with them, I can see them being an heirloom for the family.
Why we love blocks
Like puzzle pieces, blocks fit together. Unlike puzzle pieces, they can do so in a variety of ways. Learning to predict what fits where is the work of many years. Which pieces will I need? Do I have enough? The expert can see simply by turning the blocks over in her mind.
Small world play
Is your castle missing a section of wall? Does your railway need a tunnel? Never fear! Here is your humble set of blocks to the rescue. Infinitely versatile, blocks provide the canvas upon which to paint your stories.
Red, blue, red, blue; big, small, big, small. So much of early mathematical thinking is about making patterns. Can you see how it's a small skip from here to odds and evens or the two-times table? A set of blocks like the one above can even illustrate a number's relative size and how it can be combined to make ten.
