    Oh wow!! These are freakin’ awesome!!

    We have a little boy who would absolutely love these!! I gotta show my wife! He’s a little young yet (7mos) but I’m sure these would be great for him when he gets a little bigger. I wish there was things like this when I was younger, I probably never would have stopped playing haha

    Thanks so much for sharing!

    I love this post! My kids are teenagers now but I miss so much when we had these around the house. We used them when they were toddlers but also when we homeschooled during elementary years. (We had the Melissa and Doug ones.) I never did purchase the foam ones but always wished I did. Blocks like these are, in my opinion, a must-have-item for childhood. (You can use it to learn early measurement, too!) Anyway, I could go on. Thanks for the post!!

      Thanks for stopping by.

    Wow those building blocks look amazing. I only ever knew about the foam building blocks and they don’t pull me. My kids are still young and I think if it falls the whole time it will make extra tears in my house which I am not looking for! However, the other ones look great. In particular the Kids Adventure Jumbo. My kids would absolutely love them!! It can be their next present;)

    Excellent!.
    These are by far better than sticking a gadget on a kids hands.
    I like that kids can create just about anything they can imagine with these building blocks.
    I like the kids adventure jumbo, the color varieties are just great and would beautify any creation.

    Thanks for sharing these gift ideas.

    Best

    Hi,
    this is a great article and very informative. I have two young grandchildren who love to make and build stuff (and so do I).
    I had never thought of anything on this sort of scale before but it’s a great idea and as you say it helps with so many skills that kids learn as they grow up.

    Mark.

    I remember when I was a kid ny favorite toys are building blocks. It is so fun, and I make different types of things about it. I’m planning to buy one for my nephew because his birthday is coming soon. I’m kinda scared to give small building blocks because it is common to choking for a kid. I read your article about large building blocks and this is the perfect gift for my nephew. Thank you for sharing your top 7 large building blocks.

    When I was 4, I was given a set of Lego’s “bionicle” and absolutely fell in love. I created my own designs with it, complained about the lego directions, what have you. I am now an engineer and I know that a huge part of that is my early interest in problem solving. I do not have kids, but when I do they are surely getting something similar to these sets, that way they wont swallow the parts, excellent write up!
