The Small Toy Blocks Sets 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 sets and you can always add more later from our
Booster Sets or Open Stock.
"A" Sets and "B" sets.
Our "A" Sets are somewhat more detailed and offer a wider range of
pieces. The "B" Sets are chunkier with more larger pieces
and fewer small ones. "A" Sets and "B" Sets are the same size
