This Classic Toy is a perfect first manipulative for kids! The Beginner Pattern Blocks set includes five two-sided wooden boards with 10 recessed design templates, and 30 bright and bold geometric shapes.

All of the pieces come in a sturdy wooden box making clean up and storage a breeze. The Pattern Block toy provides kids with opportunities to practice color and shape recognition, fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and creative expression. Designed to engage playful preschoolers and young children, and constructed with care to withstand their harshest treatment, this block set is made of durable, child-safe materials and is safety-tested to our most rigorous standards. It makes a wonderful gift for preschoolers and kids ages two and older for hands-on, screen-free play.

I use it with a young three year old. It is a wonderful way to introduce the blocks used in elementary school. I am a retired teacher so recognize the value of beginner activities.

WARNING!

Great Puzzles BUT WARNING: little fingers can get stuck between the wood box and puzzle. My child’s finger got wedged in between the wood storage box and the puzzle when she was trying to take out a puzzle and it was really stuck in there. So needless to say, we had to get rid of the box unfortunately after we finally got her finger out.

I had one like this but harder for my older kids but I got this for my 23 month old and he loves it. It’s way more simple only about 5 pieces on each one and we go over shapes and colors each time. I like how both sides of the wood use the same shapes so you don’t have to bring the whole container down.

Great puzzles but my 2 year old grandson was a little bored with it. Probably better for 18 months.

My grandson (age 2.5) enjoys this puzzle although it was not as difficult for him as I thought it would be. I bought another pattern puzzle that is more difficult. I will give it to him when he tires of this one.

We love these pattern block puzzles. We bought them for our three-year-old granddaughter's birthday. They are easy for her, and a great introduction to more difficult puzzles. Also love that they are multi-leveled in other learning areas: colors, shapes, and numbers. She also likes to use the blocks in creative ways making her own "buildings" and "pictures".
