DIN A Kit

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.

BAB B12
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 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.

Beginner B12
The Beginner A & B wooden block sets are for youngsters in the range from 4-5.  They are the same size (weight/volume) but the Beginner A is more detailed and has fewer large pieces while the B set has fewer pieces but more big ones.  Next year, a booster kit and the same a year later gets you to a Base Kit around 7-8.  The Beginner B makes a great first step, but be sure to see all of the medium kits before you make up your mind.

An Imported Rubberwood

Economy Block Set
This is an imported Rubberwood economy block set.  We get these blocks from Thailand and they are so cheap, you couldn't buy the lumber for a set like this made out of American Maple.  The workmanship is okay and they are the correct size for American School sized blocks.  If you want more, but two sets.  At this price, you can't go wrong.

Base Kits B12

  By first grade and beyond, your builder needs about 200 blocks to satisfy a growing ambition.  The beginner kits in the medium kits are large enough for a 5 year old, but a 6 or 7 year old has bigger plans and wants to make buildings that look like something, or build towers that require a chair to reach the top.  The Base Kit B should do the trick. THis kit is the same size (weight and volume) as the Base Kit A but has more bigger pieces and fewer small ones.

Fortress Kit
(20 Pieces)

This Kit Includes battlements, cap battlements, and finials.  This allows turning a non-descript fort into the real McCoy! Finials make just the right thing to add the finishing touch to towers, castles and monuments.  The tower caps top off towers in case maidens need to let down their hair, and battlements allow archers to decimate unwary varlets below.
