    The TOD Kits are suitably large for children about 4.  It depends a lot on the child.  At this age, children begin to make things, though the connection may be a bit mysterious.  They may also spend a lot of time matching the block footprints and struggling with lining the blocks up perfectly.    A milestone is making a box - that is, a structure with four sides and a top - also learning to balance one piece on another.   They may be able to identify two different triangles by that name - but they may not be able to tell you why this is so.  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.
