Pine Wood Building Blocks (Treehouse)
Building block set made of all natural pine wood. 71 pieces. Undyed and safe for children 4+. Taps into a child's creativity, challenging them to think logically and creatively. Comes with building directions. Made in the U.S.A. (
These blocks are the result of a grandfather whose grandsons were always complaining about their rounded log block set that kept rolling apart when they tried to build log cabins. He set about perfecting the design that featured a unique, tighter, interlocking fit that makes the buildings more realistic, and fit together.
The sets make structures that are much larger than most other building sets, so they engage for hours, and a child has to really think about where each log needs to go.
Perhaps one of the most welcome features is the pine wood the blocks are carved from. They're 100% undyed, and tumbled for a smooth finish. And the wood smells great.
Use & Care
Each set comes with detailed instructions. Pretty much any kid can enjoy them, but they're probably best for at least 4 years and up, or kids old enough to follow directions. The younger they are, the more help they'll need from you.
Production & Design
These challenging block sets have been around since the 1930s. The inventor got the idea from his grandsons who were ever complaining about the logs they'd try to build with, but which always rolled apart. He wanted to build a set for structures that wouldn't topple easily, so he developed the unique rectangular shaped logs with a tight notching fit. The logs were also hand cut and honed to a finish which gave them a realistic feel and truly classic look.
When he passed away, his grandson set out to pick up where his grandfather left off. Since then, the blocks have retained their classic look. The company still uses pine logs as before, which are hand cut. The earth friendly block sets are all made of natural pine wood from mills using sustainable forest management practices. Each piece is tumbled for a smooth finish, and kept its natural color with no dyes.
These blocks are a bit more sophisticated than plain building blocks and will challenge a child's powers of concentration and hand-eye coordination. They prove a toy doesn't have to be electronic to be fun.
