    Beginner Set D

      The Beginner D is a very chunky kit assembled on the basis of the Bank St. School Kit (found in the Kits for Schools section).  Numerous authors of books on Block Play recommend this school kit.  Unfortunately it is designed for 14 children.  By the magic of long division, we've modeled our kit to be a similar assembly designed for one or two children. Like a lot of school kits, it is missing many of the fine detail pieces.  Instead, it is composed of large, simple pieces that lend themselves to the play of children around the age of 5. If you are looking for a kit with lots of big pieces, this is the kit for you.
