There's nothing more satisfying to a child than piling blocks high and then knocking them down. Why not give them a set of colorful, educational blocks to help them satisfy their longing for destruction? The Wooden Animal Nesting Blocks are a set of 8 wooden blocks painted with a myriad of colorful animals, ranging from a gigantic blue whale to a tiny gray squirrel. When these playful animals are stacked, they span nearly three feet tall! The blocks are sturdy enough to withstand play, and are great for teaching the little ones colors, animals and their noises and habitats, counting, sorting, and concepts of big and small. They're also wonderful for helping the little ones develop their motor skills and hand-eye coordination. When playtime is over, they all fit inside one another for easy storage. These blocks are recommended for ages 2 and over, and measure 5.75 x 5.75 x 5.7 packaged.
