Toy Blocks
Eight Small Kits for
Younger Children

American Hard Maple Blocks - "the real deal"


The Small Toy Blocks Kits on this page are suitable for youngsters from 3 to 4. During these early years, they are gaining coordination, learning to abstract features, and using these to distinguish shape names (or maybe it's vice versa).  Eventually, they will learn to stack blocks: two at first, and then three or more. They are learning to play cooperatively and the best fun comes from playing with them as they will quickly mimic small structures that you build and learn the words you use to describe them.  Gentle supervision will also help them interact and share with others.  They are not usually as interested in the blocks as you are - instead, they are enjoying the interaction with an adult and they enjoy praise for little triumphs. They don't require a very big set of blocks.  These blocks are the same as those in our bigger kits and you can always add more later from our Booster Kits or Open Stock.


 "A" Kits and "B" kits. 
Our "A" Kits are somewhat more detailed and offer a wider range of pieces.  The "B" Kits are chunkier with more larger pieces and fewer small ones.  "A" Kits and "B" Kits are the same size (volume/weight). 

Ages 3+.

DIN A12 & B12  Kits
Just a taste.  These little sets of blocks are good for our youngest customers and small enough to be taken in the car or on a trip if you have a little bag for them.  If you have a grandchild or young child and just want to to start a collection or provide a taste of things to come, these little sets are for you.  You will be surprised how much pleasure and play these will get in the hands of a three year old.

INF A12 & B12  Kits
Young Children don't need a large set of toy blocks.  They look at the pieces and show them to other people.  Being able to manipulate and learn the names of shapes is a milestone.  Our smallest block is too large to choke on.  This set is scaled to the same scale as larger sets, and when your child is ready to move up this set will integrate perfectly with larger sets.

BAB A12 & B12  Kits

The BAB Kits are about twice as large as the INF kits and provide a good deal more elbow room for creativity.  These are still intended for very young children, but allow building some simple layouts and box buildings. The INF kits above are fine for a first set of blocks, but if a young child is already playing with some blocks and clearly enjoys them, than the BAB kits may be a better choice.

TOD A12 & B12  Kits

The TOD Kits are the largest kits for little tykes up to about 4-1/2.  They are about half again as big as the BAB kits and make a good kits for youngsters not quite ready for Kindergarten.  This kit has enough pieces to build some simple buildings and is a good transition kits for the child that is a trifle young for the beginner kits found next in the Medium Kits.

on the Dnieper one day; make
a new one downstream the next!
