This a really beautiful, high quality set of wooden blocks. The size is chunky enough to be comfortable for toddlers hands and easy to manipulate.
The blocks are so smooth, don't smell toxic (the paint is safe for kids) and the engraving is so fine and beautiful.
My son is just about to turn 2, but I am excited about the potential for the years to come, using blocks that have animals and letters in our family language, Spanish, as alphabet toys and activities we generally find in Australia do not relate to the Spanish letters.
It is also a bit pricey, but I guess a good quality, sustainable toy is worth it.
