The pieces nest together perfectly because they are carved from a single piece of solid linden wood from FSC-certified trees, guaranteeing the wood is harvested in environmentally sustainable ways. It is cut, then shaped, smoothed, and colored by hand using non-toxic, water based stains, which leaves a pleasing matte finish that is perfect for stacking. This smooth finish allows the natural wood grain to show through on the surface (revealing your one-of-a-kind rainbow!) It also prevents the blocks from slipping when used for building. Measures about 6.7 inches wide, 3.6 inches high.
Benefits of Playing with Blocks:
Toy blocks serve as building blocks for children’s creativity. Extensive research has shown that block play provides a rich learning context for young children's social development, physical knowledge, language acquisition, mathematical concepts, and creative thinking. The open-ended nature of block play encourages exploration, allowing a child to truly CREATE -- anything that can be imagined!
