These Sets are designed for yougsters from age 4 up who are starting to use building blocks. Typically, they discover these big school size blocks at quality day care centers or preschools and yearn for some at home. People who have grown up with blocks often describe them as "The best toy we ever had!" Kindergarten teachers often cite these as the best single all around toy.
But not every child likes blocks. Builders tend to evidence themselves at an early age, and these Blocks Sets provide a good starting point. Eventually, a 7 year old is going to want one of our Basic Sets, but it may be more practical to start with one of these beginner sets and see how it plays. Then, next year, buy a Booster Set or some individual blocks from Open Stock and build up over a couple of years.
