Rated 5 out of 5 by Lauren from Great blocks I had originally intended to purchase the set that contained 100 pieces, but settled on this one instead. These blocks are VERY durable! My kids (he's 4, she's 7) got these for Christmas 2011, and this is probably the most played with toy they have. They build houses and towers and castles, etc, then knock them down. With all that demolition work, only one block has a tiny chip in a corner. Plastic toys come and go, but I think these will be around for a very long time. Good, quality wood. Really gets the creative juices flowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Miss Debbie from Great Deal I LOVE IT So much i have purchases another set so the kids can go BIGGER!!! I bought these blocks for my daycare as a creativity toy and found so many more wounderful uses. Being a standard Unit is great 2 small blocks make a med block 2 med blocks make a big one etc. It has even shown useful in helping my 10 year old (who has learning disabilities) the basic concepts of fractions and geometry!! This product remains the best value it takes a beating from the littest and still provides quality for everyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andy from Excellent product This is a wonderfull product. It is fun and safe. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is that in one space where there should be another block is a styrofoam block. I just don't get it. The wood quality is excellent and the box contruction is sound. I would absolutely recomend this product to friends and family while telling them about the styrofoam insert. But that might just be my peeve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissLiz from Best blocks out there I bought this for my 2 year old. I was worried that since it didn't have any color that they might prove boring BUT I was WRONG. He loves them. He uses them as ramps for his little cars and builds and stacks them. He has lots of fun and he always goes back to them. I highly recommend because they are solid wood, no paint to worry about chipping or looking bad, and they come in a wood storage box. This is a heavy duty product that can stand the test of time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by joe teacher from Smaller than "Standard Unit Blocks" A standard unit block is 5.5 inches long, 2.75 inches wide, and 1.375 inches thick. These blocks are (1-1/2-by-2-by-5-inches). It may seem like a minor difference, but it is significant. True standard unit blocks are twice as long as they are wide and twice as wide as they are thick. This makes them a valuable spacial learning tool because it gives kids hands on ways to explore putting two halves together to make a whole (among other mathematical concepts. I am very fond of most M&D toys. It is disappointing that they miss-label these blocks as standard unit blocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JonOwenAbbeyMom from Love these blocks My boys(5yrs and 9yrs) got these blocks as a gift 2yrs ago and they still love them. Such a simple yet useful tool for their imagination. They will sit for hours and make flight ramps for their jets or bases for their little Army soldiers. The best toy they have ever gotten :0)

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatieDid from Awesome! These are great blocks. My son has had them for three years and they continue to be his favorite toy. I'm thinking of adding another set so he can build even bigger and better things! Right now he loves to build a "mechanic shop" out of them (he's five!) and drive his matchbox cars there to get fixed. The only con I can think of? If you step on one on a tile floor, you will go sliding ;) Overall, it's a super high quality product, beautiful finish, and seemingly indestructible.
