They may not be flashy or high-tech but blocks will provide hours and even years of good, natural, educational play for your child. In generations past wooden blocks were a traditional Christmas time gift for children.
3 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD BUY A LARGE WOODEN BLOCK SET
# 1-More blocks, more creativity!
There's nothing worse than not having the pieces to finish the great idea you started to build. Running out can be a real creativity killer. Not enough pieces makes kids lose interest in playing with a great creative toy like wooden blocks. But to have a big bunch of different sizes and shapes draws children to the task. Children will tend to play with a large set of blocks much more than small set. Give them the tools they need to be creative, give them lots of blocks.
# 2-More blocks, more economical!
The largest wooden block sets are typically the best value. Not only is the price per piece lower in large sets but there more of the larger blocks and more shapes so the value is even higher. So purchasing 2 smaller block sets is not equivalent to one large set. The bigger set not only have more blocks, but usually have more larger blocks, and more shapes This is a toy that will last for many years. They are a great lasting value!
# 3-More blocks, to use as they grow!
Certainly a 2 or 3 year-old child doesn't need 200 blocks and may even be overwhelmed by too many. However, they will want more blocks and more shapes as they grow. A child who is 5 years old will want a lot to build a whole city, and share with siblings and friends. Playing together and cooperating in building a big project is an activity the early school age child loves.
One suggestion is to purchase a large set but then only give a smaller child a portion of the blocks while they are young. A 2 or 3 year-old child will play with maybe 30-50 that are mostly squares and rectangles. But as they get to be 4 or older they like 100 blocks and they will start using triangles, wedges, and arches etc.
Blocks can be a real social toy that kids love to share! So have plenty for all the friends to play together!
So if you are considering a wooden block set for your family. Choose a large set for many years of family fun.
