Updated on July 9, 2011

Wooden Blocks Melissa and Doug

In today's society children are introduced to electronics at a very early age. Many children are typing away on computers when they are as young as 3 years old. But it is really important that we as parents make sure our kids get to develop their fine motor skills through creative play. One of the best toys for child development is playing with toy blocks. Teachers know how important building blocks are for development of early childhood. This is why you can find building sets in every play school and kindergarten classroom. I know I had blocks as a child. My kids played with blocks and their kids will play with blocks.

But aside from the education part, playing and building with wooden blocks is just plain fun. The most popular Building Block set is Melissa & Doug 60-Piece Standard Unit Blocks. And Melissa & Doug have been making the best wooden blocks and building sets for years.

Melissa & Doug 60-Piece Standard Unit Blocks

This Melissa & Doug wood block set contains 60 wooden pieces. They are standard size which is perfect for little fingers. These blocks also come in various shapes. These wooden blocks encourage learning. You can use them to teach fractions and counting as well as patterns. There is just so many things you can teach. The most important thing though is that your child will play with these for hours. They will build and knock down their creations and then start all over again. The wooden storage case is sturdy and makes clean up easy. But remember these are wooden boxes so you may need a grown up to move the case and put it away.
