Review and Competition: Wooden Blocks from Wood and Wonder

We were recently invited to choose an activity toy from Wood and Wonder to review with Jack.  I opted for a brightly coloured set of wooden building blocks as I had no doubt that Jack would love them.  Here is our review…

Jack has had lots of fun playing with stacking cups over the past few months by building them up and then knocking them down.  These wooden blocks would prove to be the perfect next stage for his development and enjoyment.

Wooden Blocks

The building blocks come in a handy storage tub and comprise of 50 blocks of different colours, shapes and sizes.  The blocks are made of high quality wood and have nice smooth edges.  They are painted in lots of lovely bright colours and patterns.

The tub suggests that this activity toy is suitable from ages 2+ but these kept Jack entertained for ages and he is just shy of 15months.  He was able to build structures of 3 and 4 blocks high on his own and he enjoyed watching mummy and daddy building bigger structures before knocking them down in a fit of giggles.

Wooden Blocks 1

As well as the endless fun we can have with these blocks, I love that we will be able to teach Jack his colours, shapes and numbers through play.  They will be suitable for many years to come I am sure.

Unfortunately, modern technology seems to overshadow traditional toys these days and I find it a real shame.  In my opinion, modern electronic toys simply cannot provide the same play opportunities nor compare to the physical and mental development that traditional toys like this can.

An electronic game cannot replicate the activity of placing and positioning wooden blocks when designing and building a structure or by experimenting with how high you can build a tower before it tumbles to the ground.  These blocks will encourage creativity and imagination whilst enhancing hand and eye co-ordination along with fine motor skills.  Can an electronic toy offer that?

Wooden Blocks 2

These building blocks can be purchased from -> Wood and Wonder <- for just £9.95, a brilliant price for a toy that will keep little ones entertained for hours and aid hugely in their development.

    I’d like to win this for my little granddaughter. She has a set of 4 soft cubes which she loves to play with even though at the moment she can only make a stack 2 cubes high, and she loves knocking down higher stacks that we build for her. She’ll be ready for a more challenging set of blocks so this prize would be perfect for her. I totally agree with you re traditional toys, they provide so many different learning opportunities & help develop physical skills.
