This set of 40 pastel and natural coloured blocks is an essential building block set for little ones. It has 18 pastel colour pieces and 22 natural wood blocks. They are a great addition to a Montessori heuristic play setting too as they have an open ended play nature and can be used independently to stimulate many of the senses.
Skills: they help encourage a number of skills such as fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination during the construction process. These blocks also lend themselves to imaginative play and it is a joy to watch little people design and make numerous constructions and towers or use them as part of other play sets and scenes, the list is endless and every child's unique imaginative play is a joy to watch. Little ones can also learn about sizes and shapes and how things connect and disconnect as well as employing problem solving skills. When they are used in play with others it can also help verbal skills in communications and discussions regarding the uses of these blocks.
Average unit size is 3.5cm
Suitable from age 2+.
For over 30 years, Plan Toys have been making iconic educational toys that bring children closer to nature and inspire creative imaginations and learning through play. Little hands love getting to grips with Plan Toys which are just about as eco, sustainable and high quality as toys can be. Everything is ethically made in Thailand from rubber trees that no longer produce latex, non-formaldehyde glue (which Plan Toys make themselves), organic colour pigments; and water-colour dyes – and the whole process is carbon-neutral too. As well as making FSC solid wood toys, many products are made from Planwood – an ingenious eco material made by compressing sawdust produced in the Plan Toys factory so that nothing goes to waste. All toys come packaged in recycled, non-toxic packaging which can go straight into your recycling bin.
