Hardwood Block Set {Giveaway}

Mark and I collect open ended, creativity inspiring toys for our children, toys that both boys and girls enjoy and that will entertain a wide range of ages. As a matter of fact we routinely cull toys that don’t have those possibilities. The latest addition to our selection of open-ended, creative toys is this large set of hardwood blocks from Constructive Playthings.

This is the same set of blocks that my parents had and I played with as a child, the same blocks that my children and their cousins still play with when they visit the grandparents. This is a toy that Mark and I plan to keep for our grandchildren.

The hardwood unit blocks super saver set is a set of hardwood standard unit (1 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″) blocks with a variety of double units, half units, arches, cylinders, ramps and more totaling 82 blocks in all. These blocks are high quality, smooth and lovely. We’ve been absolutely delighted.

Our children have enjoyed creating cities, towers and castles in addition to road systems and ramps for their matchbox cars. They’ve made forts for army men and houses for themselves. If we only had one toy in our home, I think it would be a quality set of hardwood blocks and this set is delightful.

Constructive Playthings now carries these great brands online:

    The Mountain Rail Adventure is on sale for $49.99 (reg. price is $189.99!) looks like a lot of fun for 3 train-lovin’ boys! If the item is on sale, does the 15% discount still apply?

As a new mom and in my opinion Easter being the most important holiday; I would love some ideas of how to amp up this holiday with the kids :)

    Kimberly @ Raising Olives Reply:

    Hi Candi,

    Easter is a very important holiday. In Scripture we see that Jesus’ resurrection is celebrated every single week on the Lord’s Day. We try to make every Sunday a special celebration of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.

    As far as a particular Sunday in April, we celebrate Christ’s resurrection just as we do all the other Sunday’s throughout the year.

    There is so much to choose from, but I think, other than the blocks, I’d choose the bristle blocks. I’d love getting the hardwood blocks because we have 5 children under 4 years, so the small set we invested in a few years ago just isn’t enough for them to build much of anything. I like the bristle blocks because we, too, have weeded out toys that are “popular” now but will be boring later. We also love open-ended toys and toys that, if you lose a part, you haven’t ruined the whole set :).

    My daughter has just started to really enjoy pushing things around so I think she would like the My Doll Carriage. She also likes to knock things down so I’m sure the blocks would be a hit.

    I would love to get the “Dress to Nest Dolls” for my 3 year old. He’s at the age where he *wants* to dress himself, but doesn’t quite have all the fine motor skills he needs to do so successfully. He’d love those! (& the blocks, or course!). :)

    Wooden Pioneer Building Logs is a standout favorite at our house. These are Lincoln Logs by any other name, same quality, but far more for your money. Also, modern Lincoln Logs are sold in creativity-constricting sets, with instructions and pictures of only one or two buildings. Not so these, and with so many pieces to use, they are great for creative constructions.

    This is another example of open-ended play potential, and has occupied my children for MANY hours. In their little world, these have become ships, playgrounds (the short logs are peg people), armies and fortifications, etc. etc. We bought ours several years ago from Constructive Playthings, and they have been some of the most-used toys in our house.

    Thanks for the discount by clicking through your blog, by the way. This vendor is one of my main go-to’s for birthdays and Christmas, so I’ll be sure to keep that discount in mind.

    I like the idea of the hanging art gallery, but my girls would probably most enjoy the puppet theater and royal puppet play set.
