Baby Blocks Set

    The BAB A12 Kit is a little bigger than our INF Kit, but it is large enough for children around 3 years.  At this age, children are first stacking up blocks and enjoy moving them around on the floor.  While they can't build buildings yet, they can stack blocks and enjoy seeing them fall over.   What is important is for children to learn dexterity, and eventually, to learn to stack pieces on top another and to make walls.  This set will be adequate until a child is about three and a half, but after that will need to be supplemented by more pieces.  It is satisfying to spend time with your children, showing them what to do with the blocks, and enjoying their progress in coordination.

   Type "A" Kits and "B" kits are the same size (weight/volume).  The "A" kits have more detailed pieces and more pieces overall.  The "B" kits are somewhat cruder but have more large pieces and fewer pieces overall.  The "B" sets are better for those primarily interested in the basic shapes.

    Our Premium Blocks have been selected for their tan, uniform Color.  Maple Firsts and Seconds may have streaks and spots caused by natural enzymes.  There is no other difference.
