Featured Review: Pattern Blocks

Check out this featured review of the Pattern Blocks from Erin, a very satisfied Discount School Supply customer and teacher from New Jersey.

 5-Star Review / 5-Star Overall

"Great set!"

Pros: colorful, sturdy, fun, durable

Best Uses: imaginative play, young children

Review: "This is an excellent, very durable set of table blocks that my preschool class loves playing with. I wasn't sure if 100 would be enough, but it's really the perfect amount of blocks for a group of 5-6 to play with at centers or free choice time. The colors and patterns are very bright and attractive and show no signs of wear after many, many uses (and 3 year olds are probably the best product testers as far as durability is concerned!). The class next to mine uses these for their own class as well as for before/after care, so even heavier use than ours, and their set has stood the test of time too. In addition to simply being great for building, I've also been able to use them for many different learning activities, such as having the children find blocks with a certain shape, color, or pattern to add to a tower or grouping them by their patterns or colors. It's not shown here, but the container's top is a shape sorter so sometimes, the kids just like to dump them, sort them through the holes, and repeat. Makes clean up more fun! Very satisfied with this purchase."

Bottom Line: "Yes, I would recommend this to a friend."

Our set of 100 traditional wooden building blocks made of natural beech wood and finished with non-toxic colors and patterns. Smooth and flat for stacking and building, this set is ideal as a color and shape recognition tool. The set comes presented in a re-usable storage canister. Cube blocks each measure 1 1/4".
