Blocks are a children’s classic because of the hours of open-ended play they encourage. Toddlers are ready to start building but their growing motor skills need sets specifically geared towards them. Toddler blocks are made of either wood or plastic. Because toddlers are prone to putting blocks in their mouths, the blocks are usually durable and easy to clean. Traditional block sets come in bright colors and include cubes, rectangles, and cylinders. Others have a Lego-like design that snap together for more stable creations. Letters and numbers often cover each block to encourage learning during playtime.
