    The INF Kits are small kits, but at 3 children aren't really ready to build very sophisticated things.  At this age, children inspect the individual pieces,  ponder the shapes and fit them together, and like to show them to other people or bang them together.  What is important is for children to learn some of the names of the shapes, and eventually, to learn to stack one piece on top another (an important milestone). This set will be adequate for 6 to 9 months, but after that will need to be supplemented by more pieces.   Our blocks are too large to pose a choking hazard and are laboratory tested to satisfy the CPSC rules for children over the age of three. The blocks are sanded maple, and children can gum them without fear of chemical finishes or oils.   

   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.
