There are many proven benefits of playing and building with wooden blocks. The process of stacking these simple shapes enhances hand-eye coordination, encourages decision making, and develops social skills when play unfolds with family or friends. Blocks with letters, numbers or pictures will promote an understanding of number concepts and letter recognition. Perhaps most importantly, imagination is required to bring a set of blocks to life. Building with blocks, we create castles and towers, roadways and garages, stables and pastures, airports and space stations, pirate ships and forts, houses and schools, the Eiffel Tower or the Golden Gate Bridge, and so much more. Give a child a set of blocks, and you will give them a tool to expand their mind and build upon unlimited imagination.
