Super-duper building for big-time play Children design and build with Unit Blocks while developing perception and problem solving skills. Great shapes-- rectangles, columns, pillars, arches, triangles, and more.
Unit blocks are ideal for learning because they involve the child as a whole: the way she moves her muscles, the way she discovers how different objects feel in her hands, the way she thinks about spaces and shapes, and the way she develops thoughts and interests of her own.
Around the age of three, children learn how to balance and fit pieces together to build sturdier towers, then bridges and enclosures. Threes and fours begin to recognize designs and patterns, their towers and buildings becoming works of art. In kindergarten and early primary grades, blocks allow children to recreate structures, cities and landscapes from everyday life.
Highly recommended by childhood development experts.
