Once I decided I needed a block set I couldn’t leave these in the shop. They were absolutely calling to me! They are just a piece of art beautifully made, appealing to all the senses. I could just stare at them all day & that is even before they have been removed from the box! Just gorgeous

The blocks that started it all...

We purchased this set when our son was almost twelve months old. Little did I know that it would spark an addiction to open-ended play and beautiful, high-quality wooden toys. These are so worth the investment as I haven't found any other brand that can compare to how gorgeous these are. Not just for kids - all visitors to our house flock to this set first. I love the design. I love the brand.

Love it!

This set has to be the most usually appealing ever! The array of colours and shapes allow for so many constructions and worlds to be built !

Gorgeous blocks, pretty colours and shapes that my big girls were instantly entranced by, years after they stopped playing with other blocks. Love these.

Smells like magic is about to happen.

I love love love it to bits!
Surprisingly scored one on a restock without me even preparing for it then it came after only 6 days!!

It’s absolutely beautiful and I’m sure everyone in our family will live playing with it but I need to wait for Christmas day. 🤣🥰🎉

Love at first build!

Played with every day and so many beautiful creations made. The brand, as always, doesn't disappoint. Packing it up is another beautiful puzzle to solve, one we are getting better and faster at each day.
