This unique AMS 28-block set feels and looks very pure and natural from the bark to the various blocks. The blocks themselves have all natural shapes and are rounded, you will find the natural form of the tree bark in each block. In the set, comprehensive and specially selected, you will find each piece in our set of blocks is entirely unique in shape and size. All blocks are pre-treated with vegetable oil. By their form and dimensions; they are ideal toys for toddlers, really a set which not only appeals to the imagination and creativity but also the senses, such as the sense of touch.

Nest owner's note: we enthusiastically recommend this set for the home, home daycare, or kindergarten environment. They are robust, and a wonderful staple for children. If one were to choose just one basic block set, we'd highly recommend these. Due to their size, we generally recommend them for 4 or 4.5 years and up. They are very much suited to a junior or senior kindergarten, or grade 1 learning environment.
