BAB A & B Sets
The BAB Sets are about twice as large as the INF sets and provide a good deal more elbow room for creativity.  This is the type "B" Set.  It is the same size as the "A" Set (Weight, volume) but it has more big pieces a fewer small ones.  This is certainly easier to put away, but remember - children are smaller than you and the small pieces may not seem small to them.

Beginner A & B  Wood Block Sets
The Beginner A & B wooden block sets are for youngsters in the range from 4-5.  We sell more of these sets than any other.  This is the "A" set.  "A" and "B" 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.  This is the kit for someone who wants more detailed pieces.

Intermediate Kit
The Intermediate Set is the right choice where more than one child is going to play at the same time.  One of the small problems with children is that they hoard blocks and squabble over certain pieces.  This problem is best solved by buying a bigger kit.  The Intermediate Kit is also big enough for a devoted play area where two or three children are going to play together.

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.

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.
