This AMS Block Set looks and feels very pure and natural, from the bark to the various natural shapes that are rounded to the tree bark on each block. We carry sets of 34 and 37 pieces. Each block is specially selected by us for its unique shape and size. By their form and dimensions, they are ideal toys for toddlers, this set appeals not only to their sense of imagination and creativity but also tactilely.
All blocks are pre-treated with vegetable oil. For maintenance we recommend these blocks to be treated once a year with oil.
large - 37 pieces. Alder wood.
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. This set also comes in a set of 34 blocks of smaller average size.
