Beka Blocks Standard Set, Traditional 36 piece set:
Of all the playthings in the history of the world, blocks may be the most important because a child's imagination is required to bring them to life. Building with blocks, children also grasp basic number concepts and learn logic skills. When you give children blocks, you're giving the tools to build their minds and develop unlimited imaginations.
Why Hard Maple?
Heirloom quality, designed to last a lifetime; and just plain beautiful
Dense hardwood for greater durability; fewer dings and dents than softer woods.
Increased 'tower' stability from added weight results in 'success' for young builders.
Renewable domestic resource; harvested with any eye on sustainability.
BEKA Unit Blocks are smooth sanded, have rounded edges and corners, and no artificial finish. A variety of shapes are included in every set - arches, triangles and columns as well as standard units.
