American Hard Maple Blocks - "the real deal"


    The kits below are recommended by a range of authors addressing the problem of how many and what types of blocks should be stocked in a classroom of about 14 children.  These include guides by Stanton and Weisberg of the Bank Street School (Play Equipment for the Nursery School),  Wellhousen & Kieff (A Constructivist Approach to Block Play in Early Childhood) and Hirsch(The Block Book).  These author's books on Block Play stress certain activities utilizing blocks in Pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms settings.  A few of our corresponding blocks differ in  minor respects from those suggested but are functionally the same.  We sell both whole kits and half kits.

  Our Building Blocks Kits come in Premium Hard Maple (all firsts) and Hard Maple First & Seconds.  To see a bigger picture of the wood blocks kits, click on the picture icon(children's blocks).  To study what's in a kit, click on the List of Pieces.  The pictures give a visual image, but the "List of Pieces" is the definitive list of what is in a kit.
Ages 3+.
